Tested three gyro mounting tape, the stock tape, Lynx gel tape and 3m4010.The vibra analysis is pretty handy( how does it calculate head speed?).The stock tape tested the worst( peaks over 275 on main, tail barely registers about 0 to 5),the lynx gel tape tested better but needed to be strapped down tight to prevent feed back cyclic shake( it tested below 200 on main and tail almost zero after being strapped tight),the 3m 4010 tested below 100 with a few peaks to 150 on main and almost zero on tail.Conclusion:gel tapes wiggle to much, stock tape will work but not ideal, 3m tape :cheap and avaiable and so far works the best.I have some zyx tape coming to test in a few weeks.The 3m feels like it will be hard to remove, very secure.
