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...
