    Am i being thick/stupid/old skool, but on e3d site, i can not find any menu navigation links to the new filaments (e.g matX FlexD etc)? only if i search or use the links in the recent adverts. Its not even listed under “Filament -> Browse All Filament”

    A "comment" I have made about "Edge" too ! Edge is not listed on the right (tick boxes on the "All Filaments" page) it (Edge) is found by hovering over Filament and selecting "Spoolworks Professional Filiamant"

    I suspect that Edge is also found under "All Filaments" is you don't tick any selection boxes and scroll through dozens of pages. You may possibly find what you want that way.

    What is more likely is that Marketing and Sales and who between them updates the web site are not coordinated.

    If you search using Duckduckgo.com on "E3D FleXD" you get...

    http://e3d-online.com/spoolWorks-Fl...-Filament?mc_cid=ea478a89ca&mc_eid=e4869a3b4b

    How you get t this on their site who knows ! :) How you find other colours either? But...

    Similarly search on "E3D MatX" and you get a few hits like.....

    http://e3d-online.com/spoolWorks-MatX-Filament-Black-30
    &
    http://e3d-online.com/spoolWorks-MatX-Filament-olive09

    Again how you get this on direct on the E3D website I don't know :-(

    As with the other filament pages if something is out of stock the size (1.75 or 3mm) tick box may be missing, but there isn't necessarily a comment saying that it's out of stock. This lead me to believe that some filament wasn't available in a particular size.

    I also missed the promotion (discount) code by not scrolling down far enough in the marketing Email so missing out on a saving on my order for Edge. (I mailed about this but they didn't reply)

    Using the search box at the top of most pages and inputting MatX etc. immediately lists what is available before you hit return, hitting View More at the bottom of the list or hitting return lists all the hits.

    Your post and a few minutes searching has helped me navigate the site, admittedly the filament section does not help much for filament !! but it's all there !!
