Considering the discussion on older Jobo 4x5 reels I'm going to suggest
you check and make sure it's made for the current reels. The one on the
great auction site in the sky includes a picture for a reel that looks
different then my Jobo reels. Doesn't look like the 2502 [Is that the right
number?] or the 1500 reel.

I have no real problem with loading the reels without any help.

I couldn't find a 120 film loader on the Jobo site. I do use the 4x5 loader
which works well for me, but I've never tried loading 4x5 without it.

I load a lot of 120 on 2500 series reels without much trouble. It does take
a little practice to get the second roll on the reel properly, but it's easy
once you've done it a few times.
