Rollers are great for changing background colors quickly during a shoot. But they aren't meant for long-term storage, especially the longer ones. They'll sag in the middle and you'll get a wavy pattern in the paper which may be visible in the image.

Vinyl keeps a little better than paper, but can still get a wave.

Right -- if you are going to leave backdrops up on rollers you need metal cores. And even then paper can sag if it's are not used regularly -- if you're not using them several times a week it's probably best to take them down and store on end.
