I agree with all you say. In the case of my six "Maxell UDXL" tapes I was going by the leader, with only one of them clearly designated as a "35-80." But i've since found that the leader isn't trustworthy. I do tend to trust the original owner, if only because of his meticulous notes on what the tapes contained -- off-air 3 3/4 4-track stuff, though.
And a couple others have turned out to be what the box says they are. I'm still working my way through this particular batch. For 50 bucks I really can't complain.
