I have never used Taq polymerase based cycle sequencing, but I have
had excellent results sequencing a 1 kb PCR product with New England
Biolab's CircumVent sequencing which utilises exo-minus Vent
polymerase.  I use their standard reaction protocol but cycle at
95/1min; 55/1min; 72/1min; twenty times after a hot start.

My product was excised from an agarose gel, cleaned up with Glass
Milk, and eluted into water. 

If you want further details... email me.
