    My first 5 kg roll. Texas don’t mess around lol I’d say just make sure you have a good way to hold this sucker because in case you didn’t see 5kg is 11 lbs. I have a CR10 V2 and the stock holder does not fit on the 5kg roll. I had to get the 5kg holder that ZylTech also sells. After I got that it all set up great and working like a charm so far! I love that I got 5000 grams of filament to work with. If you’re printing a lot this roll is for you.

    Mostly Perfect

    So glad I was able to get this when it was in stock! I got my first 5kg spool a few weeks ago and had no way to use it because I had nothing that could hold it. I found a few 3D printable 5kg spool holders and printed them but they all used 2 rollers instead of a central support rod so the extruder needed to be able to pull the entire weight of the spool. Needless to say, my extruder couldn't handle it and I was getting really bad underextrusion because of this. Thankfully I found this in stock and ordered it right away. It's perfect except for the 3D printed tension piece that was shipped with it. It was printed pretty badly and as soon as I tried screwing it together it snapped and broke. Thankfully, Zyltech provide the stl files for printing it yourself so I'll be pretty it at some point but luckily I've been able to get by without needing it. All in all it's perfect for these massive 5kg spools, but someone at Zyltech needs to tune their print settings ;)
