    Dry, perhaps; but not clean. For years, I loaded 220 film on the Ansco reel without problems. Some people say don't use a wetting agent. I've never had a problem; but I scrub the plastic. Some of the olde lab rats I knew insisted the only cleaner to use is Bon Ami Cake--the same stuff they used for ferrotype tins. You may have to look long and hard for it; but it is still around.
    John, Thank you for your replies! I think the last post found my issue. I have always loaded in the bag in my livingroom and never had any issues. Im a hobbiest and have about only 200 or so rolls under my belt but recently i bought a Mamiya C330f 6x6 and for some reason i started to load in a room in my basement and have noticed my arms sweating alot when loading down there. I even had to leave the bag wide open to dry out. This is when all my issues started with the loading. I feel its a humidity issue in my damp Chicago basement, The paper on the roll was wet when i tossed it out so it has to be the sweating that caused it. I will also take your advice on cleaning the reels. Thank you for your advice!

    Jim

    SRS5694, John,

    Thanks for the great advice! I should take the time to seal any light leaks no matter how small then i wouldnt have these issues. I guess i got use to the bag and got lazy.
    Thanks again guys!

    I cut a tiny bevel [ 1/8" wide, done with scissors] on the leading edge of my 120 films; it seems to help with loading on plastic reels. I agree the humidity is likely a big factor.

    Stainless steel Kindermann reels are the best.

    They load like a dream. Fast and efficient! Older Nikkor reels can be a real pain.

    Good Morning,

    Ditto on the Kinderman 120 reels. Getting a reel loaded ususally takes thirty seconds or less.
