It sounds like you have to deliver on tape, but it would be best to check what options are available.

As a freelance editor I don't own any decks as I haven't yet had a job that made owning one financially worthwhile, I take my completed files to a facility and play them out onto tape there. In order for that to work efficiently, my editing software is compatible with what they have (I therefore own Avid and FCP7).

Also, I've been supplying to one particular broadcaster who specifies tape delivery and I've come to the arrangement where I bring my drive with a file on it to their VT department and play it out to tape there (and they're very happy for me to drop my file onto their system to do so - I don't know whether they then use that file for anything else but they do appear to keep them).

I'd recommend sorting out your delivery arrangements before deciding which editing package to use. No doubt lots of people have their own preferences, but I have a feeling that if you arrange to finish with a file and do a playout to tape (if required) as a separate step, FCPX might work well for you.
