Are they actual, genuine, Patterson reels or generic plastic reels? I ask because I upgraded from the generic cheapies to genuine Patterson ones and it made the world of difference for me.
I'm also going to have a go at stainless steel reels and metal tanks, but I haven't dared yet with 120. I've only just (and only "almost") come to terms with them for 35mm.

has day-to-day stuff and I've given up most everywhere else through lack of time or perhaps interest.
