Comments from PBR brake pad users - Ultimate, Metal Master, or Deluxe?

Any PBR brake pad users?

My experience thus far:

OEM (front & rear): Got them when I bought the car. Dusted like crazy. Squeaked occasionally. Stopped fine, wet & dry.

Textar "Yellow Box" (European formula, front): Dusted like crazy.Squeaked more often than OEM, especially after getting wet. Stopped fine wet & dry. Lasted 14,600 mi.

PBR Deluxe (front & rear): Invisible dust on silver wheels.Zero squeak. Stops fine wet & dry. Still going after 21,000 mi.

My questions are: Why is PBR so hard to find? And, what are your own experiences with Ultimate, Metal Master & Deluxe?
