That is exactly why I went w Patterson -the cost was easy, the product was new (not some 30 year old metal reel/tank), and I could do 35 and 120. Gosh, I really hope you can overcome these issues. Your issues are really unfortunate and I hope you can overcome them shortly. Destroyed shots are heartbreaking. You will feel it in the dark, all your senses will combine to get you perfect rolls I have faith...
