    Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
    He did just die. I used his stuff for many many many years. I had 2 or 3 rolls on a rope around my waist when I worked in studios. I actually never bought any until I left and I was like "whoa, that stuff is expensive, should've saved some when I was at the studios.

    But one thing about reducing backs is some are hard to insert a smaller holder (due to the size of one's fingers) and pull/insert the slides die to very limited clearance... But not impossible...

    Also some reducing backs will have the GG sit at a different distance than the original, so a slightly different relationship to the tilt axis, so your rear tilt may behave strange and different...
