Fitting those smaller tanks (the late type 1000 and the current series 1500) Jobo made two versions of reels:



the old style .................................. the new style



-) clear reels .................................. -) white opaque reel


-) stiff plastic .................................. -) rather flexible plastic


-) reel and hub cemented ................. -) reel and hub one moulding


-) reels with wedge-like barbs ........... -) reels with plain groves


-) reels with fins at the openings ....... -) plain openings



Those with lot of experience with both styles and in 35 and 61mm:

Are there practical differences in use? Which one do you prefer?
