I did find it difficult to load which wasn't helped by the fact I was developing a very old roll of verichrome that was tightly curled. Anything apart from twisting to agitate made a mess. The deep grooves led to an odd effect on the edge of the neg. Not unpleasant unless you want a pristine development right to the edge. I was developing recent exposures with my old Kodak Vest Pocket Special with a 4.5 anastigmat lens. Here' the best shot. I've tweaked it with photoshop a bit. This is cropped, so the edge effect can't be seen.
