[Darkroom] Metal feel reels and canisters?

I prefer plastic Jobo tanks and reels but I'm not likely to process  
film any time soon. Plastic reels are less likely to have the film  
make inadvertent contact with itself. The Jobo tanks don't leak  
either. Once you are good at trimmin the leader, the film just slides  
into the reel. On metal reels, you have to handle the film a lot more  
to bend it into the grooves of the reel. Then the tanks often leak.  
Another advantage of the Jobo tanks is that they can be used in  
automated Jobo processors.
