Why does fiddlerman no longer recommend Cecilio Products?

I remembered years back, how Fiddlerman made a video about "$100 violin test", and it was a Cecilio violin, the one that was painted all black.

Then recently, when I saw that same video, it had a "No longer recommended" added to the title. 

I have never been a fan of Cecilio products (due to the experience I had buying a different instrument from them), and now I'm wondering what made Fiddlerman/Fiddlershop stop selling them. I don't write this thread to be offensive, or bash fiddlershop/fiddlerman in any way shape or form.

I'm just curious, and also need more perspectives I can dissuade other people from buying those products in the future.

This was brought up in another thread--Fiddlerman indicated that there was a problem with quality consistency.

Here's the thread:  https://fiddlerman.com/forum/r.....2/#p112575
