Default 220 Film Back

Hello everyone. I have a Bronica SQAi with a 220 back. Can I use 120 film in the 220 back? Has anyone tried this?

You can get a 120 film insert cheap on E-bay and the 120 insert will fit in the back.
Never tried 120 in a 220 insert. I would imagine the film counter would not work properly. Also 120 and 220 are packaged completly different. 120 has paper covering the whole roll of film,220 does not. paper just on the ends of the film.
I would not try it because it could screw up the insert pressure plates.
That camera is notorious for not winding 220 tight. So why take the chance? Get a 120 film insert. Larry
