Lomo film spool compatibility

Has anyone tried a lomo color negative 120 film 100? I Bought a box of 3's while they were on sale and tried it on the pentax 6x7 mlu. The spools seem a bit long and created a lot of resistance when winding even when empty. The films got stuck at around 7th to 8th frame on two out of 3 rolls that i've tried. Anyone had the same experience?

I'm using Lomo 100 120 color negative film on Pentax 67 no MLU and other MF cameras (Pentax 645, Bronica ETRS) constantly since June and I had no problem yet. Pretty decent film for the price.

I have never tried the film you mentioned, but I have tried many others and never had this problem using 120 film in a 120 camera.

A 120 spool is 65mm long and 25mm across the end. If your film spool is larger, that would be a problem.

I've shot several rolls of Lomo 120 with no problems but did have an issue with one roll where the tail end was stuck to the spool. Couldn't wind it completely onto the other spool at the end of the roll. I had to open the back in a dark closet and rip the adhesive off the end of the old spool.

Still, good film for the price, especially the 400 speed.
