I find the centre loading plastic Gepe reels really easy to load. They come with a loading guide, and can be loaded in about 15 seconds dry or damp. I think they are sold under various different brand names. I prefer them over the Jobo reels, especially when it comes to unloading - the film unwinds so easily. In fact, I don't think I've had a single problem with these - no jumped tracks, no kinks.
