I use 7302 & 5302 which is Kodak Fine Grain Release Positive Film according to the can.  It's been called "light struck" because it's exposed print stock I believe.  Perhaps this is "over-kill" but it's what I've always used as seems inexpensive enough.  The white "leader" that Kodak sells is more brittle and some folks call it "painted leader" I believe.  I also think that the Print stocks are cheaper than the stuff Kodak calls and sells as leader.  7302/5302 holds sharpie well to IF you write on the Emulsion side!
