Revox A700 rewind looses tension

Hi everyone

Recently I noticed an odd behaviour of my Revox A700.

When I go into rewind and back to stop, the tape looses tension and drops down from the tape guides.

I use bobbies as tape carrier and I had issues in the past where the tape would jump off when fast-forwarding or reversing, but recently I changed the tape type and it has not happened since.

Could the two issues be related?

I recalibrated the tape tension mechanisms, the brakes seem to work although I dont have a tension meter to check the force.

Any help/tips are highly appreciated.
