Nope, I like them better than TK50s, though, because you pop off the two C rings and the head assembly
lifts up to clean, which is necessary after every tape you try to read.

TK50 tapes stick or gum up at the ends just like QIC carts do. I haven't tried baking them. Thankfully
there are almost none in the queue right now to read and hopefully it will stay that way.
