XM2 (GL2) new tapes question


Taken the plunge and bought a second-hand XM2 (GL2). The previous owner states that he has used only 2 Fuji films prior to selling it.

I plan to use (and stick with) Panasonic High Quality tapes - after all the stories I've heard, should I run a head cleaner through my XM2 now or leave it?
