    Sad announcement

    I just got an e-mail from my Edwal rep. He was sad to report, as am I, that Edwal FG7 is no more. Initially it looked like they were going to eliminate all but one size, but I guess they decided to stop production all together. Anyway, if you like/use FG7 regularly you may want to look into grabbing some before the news spreads and the prices go nuts.

    I never used it. Since I don't want to buy up something that I can't continue to get if I happen to like it, I guess I never will.

    Maybe they should just release the formula if it could be DIY mixed?

    O joy. Speed recalibration, dilution options, capacity, the whole thing to do over. I doubt that we will get the real FG-7 formula released - it is an asset even if it is never made again.

    See if your rep can convince Edwal to release the formula so the few that do like it can make their own.
