Having a bad experience. Same supplier, same brand but the current PLA is a real pain. The reel is poorly wound and so it fouls every couple of hours or less some times ruining the print if you can'y get it cleared very quickly. Typical that at the moment we want to run long 4+ hour prints.

Sounds like pre-wound cord for sidewalk edgers. Luckily the grass is still there if you have to fix a jam.

Name and shame so no one else has to go through your pain.

It was Filaprint Premium PLA.

I have had a couple of problems with badly wound reels that snag and break. I ended up using them for short time prints or where I can keep an eye on them and prevent the snag before it happens…
