In case you are not already doing this...In the dark snip off the corners (roughly 45 degrees) from the film before it is loaded on. It makes it easier by far to get the 'leader' past the ball bearings in plastic spirals and prevents the leading corners getting mangled- esp with thin based films such as apx100 and acros. Will make a big difference....which I am reminded of whenever I forget to do it....

Oh and avoid humid conditions and getting sweaty in changing bags as all help make the emulsion tacky and make it stick.
