Great reels, tank leakes like a seive.

I'm torn on this product. The reels are the best I've ever used in that there's a large flange on them that really helps loading the film, especially 120. However, the tank lid does not seal properly, so while I'm using the tank during the blix phase, there was so much leakage that my son thought that it looked as if I had killed something in the bathroom sink.

I'm torn on this product. The reels are the best I've ever used in that there's a large flange on them that really helps loading the film, especially 120. However, the tank lid does not seal properly, so while I'm using the tank during the blix phase, there was so much leakage that my son thought that it looked as if I had killed something in the bathroom sink. This tank is also more difficult to pour compared with the Paterson tank. I ended up going with the Paterson tank and using these reels. Best of both worlds. I recommend the reels, but not the tank.

Students prefer these tanks and reels

The large loading track on these reels is easy for a beginning photography student to master. The tanks don't leak. We have a variety of film developing tanks, both plastic and metal. This particular model is preferred by students.

AWESOME tank!

By

This tank is great, and the reels are the easiest reels I've ever used. I'd recommend this tank to anyone looking for a development tank. It has two different agitation methods that you can choose from: One is by spinning the reels with a knob, and the other way is the standard "shaking" the tank around. The lid is sealed tight, and I've never had any leaking issues when agitating it by the shaking method. The one and only "con" this tank has is that sometimes the film is hard to get OFF the reels once it's been developed. The reel has crunched up the edges of a roll of film of mine, because I literally had to tear the film off the roll.

Outstanding tank!

I have used a lot of tanks, and this is one of the easiest to use, and one that delivers consistent results.

Great reels

By

My favorite feature of this tank is the reel design. They are easy to load in my change bag. So much quicker that the steel reels! The tank is also good and does not leak when threaded properly. The rotating agitator is a nice feature, but also makes the tank a bit bigger, requiring a little more developer to fill compared to plain aluminum tanks. Not a deal breaker, but worth noting.

Easy loading

By

I have used many reels over the years, but these are the easiest to load of any I have used. You can load these blindfolded in the dark ;) For me, the tank is only as good as the reels. Much easier to load than stainless or the Jobo-style reels. I have five of these. I do not use inversion, but reversing rotation for agitation. I have had chemical leaks when inverting. Many, if not all, tanks have this problem. I have always preferred reversing rotation agitation since it keeps air bubbles and foaming to a minimum. I have not seen these affect my results over the last 35 years of working with film.
