Bud 490 Rootstock / What Happened?

What happened to Bud 490? I've only ever seen it listed for sale on Treco's website, but it appears they haven't offered it in awhile. They've got a chart on their site that says it's "available from other sources." Any idea whether this is true and who those sources might be? I'm going to call them later today (when they're open) to inquire about it, but I'm curious if anyone on here may have some idea as to its history and why it seems to have disappeared. It has characteristics that make it distinct from Bud 118, so I can't imagine they simply canned it because it was too similar to Bud 118.

Any ideas? Thanks!
