    plastic reels are so very cheap - having a second set for an extra couple of bucks, means you can run at least 2 back to back runs with out having to wonder if they are dry enough.

    I'm perfectly happy with my Paterson tanks and reels, though I'll admit I haven't tried stainless steel. As long as the reels are dry and the ball bearings aren't stuck there pretty much trouble free.

    Yes! RAffay - I am also using two Paterson tanks since about twenty years, a small one for maximum three reels - and a large one for eight reels. - As someone said before - make sure the reels are definitely dry! - They have tiny little lead balls the first inch - and the film runs across them while turning both reels to grip and lead the film into the reel.

    Paterson is really nice and well to handle.

    Have fun with your 135 developments!
