All that said.. i would have giving it 5 starts.. except that int he middle of the spool over the course of about 20 feet i found quite a few bulges and thin sections.. when this happened the first 2 times it cause the print to fail.. first time it plugged up in the extruder causing to to stop feeding material was about an hour into a 5 hour print.. 2nd time it was a thin section.. causing the extruder to slip and fail to print that was about 70% though a 2 hour print.. those printer were tossed.. i did have it happen again.. i was actually watching this time and was able to pause the printer remove the filament cut out the section of bad material and reload and continue the print.. i have about 1/2 the spool left and will be winding it onto another spool or two while checking for more bad sections.. it seems like im thought them.. i checked the next 50 feet or so and its fine.. so it seems like it was just a bad stretch..
Long story short i will probably try this filament again but if i run into similar issue i will probably look for another seller of TPU filament

Material is very strong and flexible when printed 1-3mm thick.
One star off for color. Red is not red, but much closer to salmon - almost pink. Still plan on buying more - in a different color - but expecting less saturation of color than the pictures online show. Probably 4.5 stars, but the color is more important for a flexible filament as painting isn't as much of an option.
Overall seems to be a good value.
The only issue that gave it 4 Stars and not 5 Stars is that when I used it in the sun for just 4 hours the color started to fade. it is now more like a light green sky blue color but color was not the main focus for me. As I said above the stiffness and flexibility of the TPU is Great for what I need it for.
On the positive side, it's almost as easy to print as PLA in my Prusa MK3. Just be sure to coat the PEI bed with gluestick, otherwise the part will be almost impossible to remove. I use regular PLA settings with no changes, and it just works.
The semi-flexible aspect is very useful. Thin faces (1mm thick or less) bend easily, but thicker objects can be almost as rigid as a hard plastic. So with some experimentation and careful design you can combine rigid and flexible elements in the same print without having to use multiple materials.
On the negative side, the colors are only OK. The green fades very quickly in the sun, and all the colors except black are somewhat translucent. Your infill may be visible if you're printing with thin shells for the flexibility. I also wish they had more color options than the Crayola 4-pack.
