Inland black ABS has a great matte stealth like sheen. I really like the change from typical PLA shine.

Inland from Microcenter is one of the least expensive filaments available. They have a wide selection of color and it prints fine most of the time. In general though, the Inland colors are less saturated, sometimes transparent, and can have inconsistent shade on large prints. Inland comes on a 1KG vacuum sealed roll with a plastic spool. Some specialty rolls are sold in half kilograms, such as color changing filament. If shopping locally watch out for opened rolls. Microcenter will often take returns of open rolls.
