I finally had it, and tossed them out. I only wish I had taken a hammer to them before I put them in the trash. I recently returned to developing with these and I don't remember having so much trouble with them before. Perhaps it is my age. I don't know. It took me forever to get them loaded correctly. Sometimes longer than the time it actually took to develop the dang film. I bought the Arista ones from Freestyle and all is right with the world again. That is all.
