The Brownie Camera Guy says:
I have used Paterson tanks for decades. I like them because I don’t have to think about them when using. I have NEVER had one fail or break. I have tried and used many tanks from many manufacturers and none are as functional as a Paterson.

These are probably the best hand development tanks out there. I used to have an old kaiser single reel dev tank which could just open if you pulled the top of during development. This was a huge step up. It has good quality plastics, and the reels are fantastic and smooth when loading your film.
