DAT Tapes.....64 min. preferred over 90 min. or longer ??

So.......I'm starting to do my mixdowns out of the box once again into a Panasonic 3700 DAT. As far as DAT Tapes go.......I thought I read something a number of years back about anything longer than 64 minute DAT Tapes not being preferrable because of the tape being thinner to be able to fit the extra length.......therefore possibly affecting quality or having other issues arise because of it.

Anyone have any insight on this ??

I went to Guitar Center to pick up a DAT Tape today and all they had was 90 minute tapes. So I decided to wait until I find out if there's anything to the "thinner tape" theory to the DAT Tapes that are longer than 64 minutes.
