Sony DVC Premium MiniDV tape

Is anyone using Sony Premium MiniDV tape in the GL2? I'd like to hear opinions on quality.

Also, has anyone used the 120 or 180 minute tape?

I prefer Fuji. I also suggest sticking with 60 min tapes.

I have used the tapes before in XL-1 w/o problems. The most important think is to stick to one tape brand. Presently, I am using Panasonic Master Grade DVM63.

I have been very reluctant to use the longer tapes, because I worry about durability.
