I was a photojournalist in my younger days, owned a professional B&W darkroom, and have processed about 10,000 rolls of B&W film over the years. I spent the extra money on the Hewes reels. It has been 14 years since I've worked in a darkroom, but considering it took me two minutes to remember how to use the Hasselblad I don't think loading 120 film will be a problem, but I do plan to ruin a practice roll before loading film with images.
I am amazed at the quality of the Hassey. I guess I should have mentioned I used to own one and it was working with drum scans that convinced me to sell my EOS gear and go back to medium format film for my serious work.
Here's a photo I took on my earlier Hasselblad. Shot on Fuji slide dilm, drum scanned and converted to B&W in Lightroom, prepped for display in PhotoShop.
