I read lots of talks about the difficulty to load film on those plastic reels when the reels are not absolutely dry. I am wondering if this is also true for jobo reels?

On the other hand, I have used stainless steel reels all the time when I hand-developed my black and white films, and felt very comfortable of using them.

I use them for everything from 35mm up to 4x5" and think they're fine.
