Let's see....I told you that I'd sell the reels for $20 each (try finding those ANYWHERE for that price).....X2=$40
2 boxes of 3M
Blackwatch Type IV
shipping...I figure should be about $10.
Email me offline so we can make the arrangements.
Speaking of reel tape, have you tried Quantegy #407 or #457?
Those are also superb tapes. The 407 sounds pretty much neck and neck to the Maxell XLI, but the 457 is a higher bias tape. As such, you can push the needles further into the red. The only down side is because of the higher bias, the higher end won't be as sharp or crisp unless you can re-bias your deck (which is one of the reasons why I like the Teac X-2000R....it has an adjustable bias).
If you want.....I can spool a "pancake" of #407 or #457 onto an empty (I have empty Maxell reels) and attach leaders if you want (The pancakes do not have leaders on them. I have red, blue, yellow, green, white, translucent red, and translucent blue) and ship that in place of an XLI for no extra.
