Even if you are a seasoned veteran in resistor stripe reading, its still a pain. And you are likely to forget the coding convention if you dont read resistors on a daily basis also.
Wait to you get as old as me and you can't even read the writing without tons of extra lighting and a big magnifying glass. As an aside I always take a resistance measurement on any resistor I use before soldering it into a circuit, trust me It's worth the extra time expended.
Even chips with their part numbers in dark gray on a slightly darker gray background are a pain.
i think the lead lengths on the electrolytics might be for pick and place machines ?
You get one mixed pile of resistors and you are gonna waste your time looking for the one you want especially if you have to de-code the stripes or individually measure the reading.
not the ones we use, caps come on a paper tape and the leads are cut pretty close to that so the machine can use it, and AFAIK the leads are the same length on the tape
