Again I have yet to have a problem, the only time I ever had problems starting 120 or 35mm films was with SS reels, gave up with them after spending to much time trying to start them, went back to patterson and never a problem, try starting with the tape end of the film, tear the tape and fold any excess and use the tape to stiffen the film, may help, also I was aware of the problem, using the pencil to dry grease the start of the reel does help, make sure the ball bearing are not stuck and the film should simply slip in, I have been loading 120 film into Patterson reels for over 40 years using these methods and I have yet to either have a film stick or problems starting,
