Alternative textured PEI sheet?

I cannot find the Prusa textured PEI Sheets on the Prusa e-store. If they are not available, can anyone recommend another brand that I could buy from Amazon or another source?

I'm not a fan of the company, but the v4 version of TheKKIINNGG sheets available off Amazon has worked well for me. I'd avoid the gold FYSETC sheets as the texture is way too aggressive on the sheet I received. It's almost like friction tape.

I also bought the FYSETC sheets and reworked them with 400-grit sandpaper. So the structure was broken a little and doesn't look like a grater. But the better choice is the Prusa sheet.

In the USA LayerLock sheets might be interesting.

RE: Alternative textured PEI sheet?

Can I ask what the benefit is of using a textured sheet over the smooth ones?

Do I "need" both?

I use both - depending on the surface of the print I want or the filament I am using.

If you only want or need one, go with the smooth. It works with all filament types.

If you can get both, get both. The texture is very nice to work with and less maintenance intensive. It can be problematic with some filaments, depending on your specific sheet. Unfortunately, there is some variation in consistency with the Prusa sheets.
