Well,you certainly don't need any separate "starter" for the RA/RT kits sold here, for drum use. That
turned out to be a big myth. But things might be out of synch in terms of specific product offering there.
One has to look at the specific packaging numbers. One-shot usage rates relative to these are available
on Kodak's web data base, though the search might take awhile. I have since switched over to the
Arista (Silver Pixel) RA/RT kit, which appears to be identical in every respect.
