I use 2-reel Jobo tanks with their plastic reels - no swirl stick involved. Process was everything in the tent (tank, lid, center tube and 2 reels; film canisters - leader already out, kids round nose scissors). Leader is cut square with small bevel on the corners before going in the tent; I take my watch off to get my hands in the tent sleeves to avoid light leaks; the negs went on the reels very easily and when cut from the canister it continued into the reel with little effort (no loading issues); first reel placed on the center post on inside the tank; second reel place on the center post without removing it from the tank; lid locked on (always note its tight); hands out, unzipped then everything out. Film sat in tanks over night.

When finished with fixer, tank lid off, rinsed for another 10 mins with flowing water; hung to dry for half a day; then cut and sleeved. Nothing really out of the ordinary. What I don't know is whether the affect rolls were developed in the same tank - I loaded 2 (4 rolls) at the same time.
