PETG Fliament

OK, still existing with only my FabII Mini, I have found that PETG is giving the best results for the items I need to print.

It's not stringing more than minimally, and is producing strong good looking models.

So what's the problem?

That there seems to be a limited availability of colours, and a high proportion within that availability of transparent colours.

So far I have only bought budget stuff. The thought of paying over £20 for 1.75mm 1kg reels is somewhat off putting when you don't know the actual print quality you will get from the on your setup.

So far I have:-

Budget HobbyKing White

HobbyKing Premium in Sky, Clear and Transparent Yellow.

A lot of the supposed stockists with easy UK supply seem to claim they have stocks they do not. Whether this is the surge of interest in 3D print or just bad stock management. Black, white, grey and maybe red seems to be "it" from many places.

So, any sources out there please?

I'm particularly keen to get Brown, Gold, Orange (not flouro)?  Any source for PETG users can recommend?
