May i know if these paddles change the feel of it when pulled. I don't like the OEM paddle feel in terms of the strength required to pull and the feel of the click.

The pic shows a black brushed but the options only list a gunmetal brush. Is there going to be an option for black or is that it?
Or is the gun metal basically a black?

Me three. Looks llke Darwin changed his post on #15 to edit the estimated price of $99-$120 to $149-$199....
They probably saw all the hype on these and figured they could raise the price.

I'm out... unless there is a group buy and it would be 100. 150 is a lot in my book.

Guys,

Price went up slightly due to the cost of anodizing and prepping the material finish prior to anodizing. This is a small batch production so the anodizing place charged us a minimum charge. We always use the best anodizing place here in the bay area, cause we know how picky u guys are.

I would like to be able to sell for $99-$129, but we simply can't. We only make 50 sets of these and at $150 we are making less than a 20% margin.

This is nothing to do with hype, we love doing this, so the money is not the issue here. We are not here trying to make a quick bux.

Install pictures coming out today. Thanks guys
