I have done pretty much the same in the past. Strictly a Panasonic man. You can get the highest quality tapes brand new for a cheap price if you do a little looking

I use Panasonic tapes and always buy in bulk off eBay w/ Bing cashback, I order 100 at a time for $2 or less a tape.

I only use Panasonic PQ (professional quality)

I buy 80% 63min tapes $2.49


and 20% 83min tapes  $6.89


from B and H.

The 63 minute tapes are way cheaper, but if it is a 2 hour set, I would prefer to have one tape flip. If I am running 2 cams, I will always go with the 63minute tapes.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That is a smoking deal.  Those PQ tapes used to be much more expensive.  Now the consumer grade tapes are a dime more expensive than the PQ tapes, very odd.

Just bought 50 of the 63's.  83's are backordered :(

is the 63 min SP mode?
the 83 might be better for HD stuff as far as flips goes
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

I have been using those Panny tapes 63 minute ( the new looking U.S black Panny tapes ever since they came out) I get 25-50 tapes every couple of months.

I get them at tapestockonline.com

But i have had some trouble with the 83 minute tapes.  Some playback issues and timecoding.  But again only on the 83 minute tape.  I tape a lot, at times 3 cam's going. (2 canon Hv30's and 1 HV40).
