When I put "Capture tape" into Google, the first 4 hits are for the product. I'd say that name works pretty well.

I really like Splicit and want them to succeed.
If you want to rate highly on search engines you have intentionally improve your hits and you have to do it every week. It takes time for this to occur

Well, I found "Capture Tape 930" on ebay's UK site. Odd, though the tape is in New York. For a case of 10 pancakes, it costs £223.78. However, shipping charges are only £17.50 to the UK. Import charges are on the order of US $99.07.

Certainly someone in the US could purchase Capture, even in a smaller quantity and forward it on to our UK members.

Hi everyone,

I will pick up a few Capture Audio Tape this week at our Montreal distributor. Am I right to say that these tape do not have leader tape? (Roger at Splicit just told me they don't).

If so, I'm wondering if one of the these two set is better than another between those two:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/White-Yellow...53.m1438.l2649

Any other option of that kind?

Thanks for your help,

Sébastien

FWIW I use the 3M/Scotch 1.5 mil yellow leader, for me colour is not important, thickness is. I picked up an 1800' (foot) roll on epay, should last me a very long time, and some day I will have another reel to put new tape on,,,,
I did not spot how thick those in the links are,,,,
Edit; dont forget splicing tape,,,,,

Finally, I've just ordered a "Deluxe 1/4" splicing kit" from Splicit. I found it to be a good deal and pretty complete for what I'd like to do:
