    Got this from B&H today:

    "We are sorry to inform you that the manufacturer has informed us that the TETENAL RA-4 COLORTEC PROFESSIONAL 5-lit has been discontinued and will no longer be available. We therefore canceled it off your order."

    So, as far as I know, the only kit now for color paper is the one Freestyle sells, which lasts less than 48 hrs once mixed.

    You can easily get Kodak's RA-4 RT developer and blix from B&H, Adorama, Calumet, etc. for $50 total ($25 for each part) and make 10 liters of each.

    I guess you can put that kit right next to the only E6 kit (arista)available, that freestyle sells also. At inflated prices in my opinion.

    Just go with Kodak RA-RT as Greg mentions. It's likely better than the other options anyway, and is cheap(er) to boot.
