Best Open reel tape for Teac X-10R

I have a Teac X-10R that is being worked on. The TEC told me that the AMPEX Tape I have is no good, can anyone recommend what tape to use?

Hi - RMGI 911 is the modern equivalent of Ampex 456 - if you google it you should find a supplier - it is now back in production being made by Pyral. When I service X-10Rs I use this to line it up unless the user specifies something different - but the RMGI 911 works really well on these machines.

Hope this helps
