Looking for tape recommendation

Hey there,

I have a tape dilema.

I own a Canon XH-A1 and have used Panasonic AYDVM63PQ tapes in it almost exclusively. Literally hundreds of tapes..

I've used a few (maybe a few dozen) Panasonic AYDVM63AMQ on occasion.

I have had great luck with these tapes. Dropouts just don't happen.

B&H says these tapes are discontinued and I'm about to use up the last of my stock.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a similar quality tape?

B&H's website says this would be a similar item: Panasonic AY-DVM63PQUS

Seems like a name and packaging change, only.

When you open the package the tapes are exactly the same as the old ones.
