Living in the Adelaide Hills I am also lucky to have a cooler climate and don't have issues with humidity. Having worked in darkrooms in my younger years loading 120 rolls can be tricky and as you have found 120 film damages easily. It might be worth sacrificing a roll of 120. Use this as a practice roll. Practice loading in the light. It might give you an idea why the film is snagging on the spool. As a rule, I always remove the paper backing and tape plus snip the corners prior to loading onto reels. Just another thought have you tried a new Paterson reel. I have Paterson reels that are only used for 120 film. Some seem to work better than others.
