Thanks!  I notice they don't have Sony Metal-ES.

Not yet, but while looking around, I noticed some comments about
prices being very high and tips on places to get tapes for more
reasonable prices.  This site has a private review of Sony Metal-ES:
Two trends will likely continue from this point - on the one hand
there will (gradually) be fewer and fewer high-quality decks that
people are using that require metal cassette tape, and on the other
hand, there is a finite supply of metal tape, so as it's used,
remaining unopened new tapes will become harder to find and increase
in value.
I've been sitting on those tapes for about a quarter century - time to
start looking around for someone who can use them I guess.
Thanks for responding.
