Tecnolux color changes

Interestingly, I have been made aware or 2 color changes at inopportune times (to say the least!):

Tecnolux color tube #17 Novial Gold has been discontinued . Replaced with #317 Sunflower. Sunflower was formulated to provide more luminescence. Fresh box arrived but I have yet to compare completed units.

Tecnolux color tube #118 Ruby Red Neon has been discontinued . #18 Ruby Red Argon has been reformulated to allow processing with either Argon or Neon gas (while maintaining a red phosphor coating). This does not match existing #118 glass however.

Suppliers that *claim* to have #118 remaining in stock simply haven't physically checked the glass as their computers have not been updated. (After overnighting 3 attempts from 3 different companies, exact same outcome.) As of this writing, Glantz has a little over one box of 12mm #118 at their warehouse in NY left. That's it in the entire country.

Been a big proponent of Tecnolux's quality for a long time. Little peeved that I recall no email, press release, or bulletin board notice regarding this and had to find out the hard way.
