Re: Best beginner film to spool onto Patterson tank

Rule number one, and the most important factor in successfully loading a Paterson reel: cut off the funny shaped leader if there's one and then make a small diagonal cut on each corner of the film.  Only needs to be 3 or 4 mm, if that, but it avoids the problems of having a sharp right-angled corner getting stuck somewhere.

1: I don't listen
