But is it really sticky shed?

I have over 500 reels of Scotch 207, LP version of 206, and all reels play
as new with almost zero shedding of any sort.
BTW, I don´t deny what you have seen, Eric, I just wonder if it is truly
sticky shed?

Hello, Goran and Eric,

I recently played with an NOS reel of 3M 206--you may have seen the high-end-loss experiments I ran and posted on the ProAudio List. That reel showed some shedding but it wasn't SSS. It was more shedding like the Agfa tape I commented on a few months ago.

I also wonder if we know for sure that it was 206...
