Just checked out southwire.com and they are making the wire. It looks like a great idea. Of course you will always have the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" guys but I love to see things changed and updated. Hope to see this new romex available soon.
Southwire Company has announced plans to introduce a new line of color-coded non-metallic cable (Type NM-B) under the ROMEX® brand name that will offer inventory and installation advantages to the construction and retail markets. The new ROMEX Extra Color NM-B is color-coded by gauge size based on the following colors: #14 - White; #12 - Yellow; #10 - Orange; #8 and #6 - Black.
I wonder if sizes other that #14 will be available as white or colored? Hmm.
