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...
