64t transport issues

I acknowledge and confirm similar problems with Batch 309!!
Various cameras, all CLA, unsteady image, troublesome transportation, bad projection quality...
We are doing further research on this, my brother and myself. Seems to be a part of a wider Super 8 quality issue, actually....
My bro' shoots some Batch 310 carts soon in CH, so we will know if the problem was contained within 309 or not.
If you need any further info from me (cams used, details, etc.) for your own investigation, I can go into greater details.
For now, this is just 'Breaking News' for me, so I try to figure out the damage occured to shot material and resulting costs... let alone potential re-shoots...

using both my CLAs Nizo Pro and Beaulieu 4008 shooting a title sequence using
cards even though I did the usual pre-loading taping, winding and praying protocol !
No jams but sooooo noisy and forget about registration. Not doing any dissolves or
double exposure at all, I can only guess what it would have been.
I also ran into worse jittering using Plus-X. Vision II 200 and 500 are less problematic it seems.

Alessandro, if you could check the batch number should you find some spare time and will of effort, it would be appreciated. Thanks, -Michael
I've looked for it, but I threw the box away, sorry!

After a most kind clarification from one source ( ) and getting info from my brother and via Kodak CH on different batch reels, I am sure that the current 311 batch of E-64 will NOT (or really shouldn't, to put it more mildly) have any transportation issues of very similar kind that several users here and elsewhere experienced with with good gear over a specific period of time. Let's trust that Kodak sorted that out by now.
Any further info about problems from any reader of this thread would be appreciated, by the way.

The edited version reads as it should, namely correctly...:
"I am sure that the current 311 batch of E-64 will NOT (or really shouldn't, to put it more mildly) have any transportation issues"
and not that 311 batch will have issues, as was briefly posted until I corrected the missing negation.
