have always used the maxell hs-4 60m with no problems ever, only one misload problem with a maxell 90, i stay away from them now

but would you rather miss music??? not me... 8)

then we can get into a debate about how some people think they wear the heads faster, im not sure what side to believe so i just stick with 60's and an occasional 90 if i must do it, but i try not too, .02

i pheel ya there, and especially w/ smaller heads/decks that WE own chris, but it just NEEDS to be used in some occassionz.... 8)

I had a bad batch of sony dgp60 tapes recently. I decided that until I tape more often (or if at all if finances don't work out) I will be using Quantegy. They're pricey but fuckit.

Any tape is fine with me, ive only used sony and apogee.  I some Maxells that are next for use.  

Note:  To anyone who buys Apogee tapes, be aware they are 90 minutes not 90 meters.  I had made that mistake.

Mainly ran Sony DG60P's, but I must of had a bad lot, as 4 tapes out of a box gave me problems (diginoise, sticking, etc.).
Using Maxell HS4 60m tapes now, w/o problems.

I have been using Maxell 90 minute tapes, but just bought 90 meter, HS-4/90s, after I learned of the length difference. I did learn of the possible head damage using these tapes so I bought the Maxell 60 meter tapes instead and have been using them exclusively.

So my question, should I keep the 90's (12 tapes), use them once and never use them again in my D8 or should I exchange them for 60's? I purchased them through Terrapin Tapes.

Still a newbie.

depending on who you tape, id keep the 90's......you never know when a set/show will bve slightly over 2 hrs......a 90 meter will get ya 3 hrs. and 7 mins.... ;)

Okay, let me put it this way....Does anybody think that I will do damage to my DAT recorder using the 90 meter tapes once to record and once to playback for a transfer?

I have done searches on this subject and have not been able to come across any numbers as to the amount of usage to damage ratio. I am talking at the most 72 hours of usage with 12 90 meter tapes.

Thanks, yes I am paranoid.
