We clarify issues raised in the preceding Comment regarding the viewpoint that the highly porous and oxidized arc-melted polygrain i-Al-Pd-Re samples could reveal intrinsic electrical transport properties of this icosahedral family. Flux-grown single-grain i-Al-Pd-Re samples of superior structural quality do not show insulatinglike behavior, and their transport properties are on common ground with all other Al-based icosahedral families.
