I read a few reviews on Amazon - the new product does not seem to be something you would want to use.  A more course texture with ceramic inclusions does not sound good.


Why not use wood flour mixed with PVA?  You and mix a dye with the fine saw dust or use a wood species that is already the shade that you wish.  Mix up as much as you need just at the time - no storage problems.

I got some of the Pro Bond and tried it and dumped the whole thing in the garbage.  It might be great for filling something on a rough sawn cedar fence but not on any model.  There is a new formula for the Elmer's wood filler - the normal stuff - that is now much nicer than the original - give it a try.  I have used it quite a bit and like it.  Sands easy and fills small holes like your treenails.  If you can't get it locally there is always eBay - with free shipping or Amazon.
