Anyone know if they're okay? Or a place to get some decent ones?

The seller has some excellent feedback, although they do not seem to actually refer to the Elmo rollers.

I bought mine from Larry Urbanski...I think you get what you pay for and a set of good rollers is a little over $100

I had an Elmo CL with the usual deteriorating rubber rollers. I got over the problem by cutting the old rubber rollers off and replacing them with 'O' rings (as I remember about 5 or six on each roller) They have to be the right size and thickness so that they don't protrude over the lip of the roller otherwise the film will not follow the guide path and the right size so that they fit snugly on the roller. It worked perfectly and 'O' rings last forever. A much cheaper option and because my religion is orthodox tightass it suited me.
