I have used 20+ rolls of this film and have not had any problems with the emulsion. Did have some excitement with some of the rools as the starter arrow was missing. But that cleared up with a newer batch. Also I have had the glued paper that was'nt and on a couple of rolls the sticky paper was missing altogether. I carry scotch tape in my bag so no big deal.
My only real compaint is how hard it is to get open a new spool, that paper band is on there to stay.
