Head Cleaning Tape for HD-100U

I'd like anyone's opinion on what they use as a head cleaning tape for their HD100U. I have read here (from Carl Hicks) that JVC recommends using a JVC head cleaner, but they make several different DV head cleaning tapes. I don't know the difference between these.

I will start a shoot in a couple weeks and would like to have it by then. Just wondering what people are using and where I can get it in the USA (hopefully locally --SF Bay Area-- in a store, but otherwise via mail).

Thanks.

A "dry type" DV cleaning tape from JVC, Panasonic, or Fuji will work OK.
