They sent out an email on the topic to detail it.
In short, these are going to be made the right way and will be bent and shipped bent. They will be made out of a slightly ticker wood so more robust at the cut/bend and better than originals for that point alone.
They will make ONLY the # ordered.
They need at least 40? commitments in order to make these and will not do any over run. In other words, this is a 1 and done forever sort of thing. So even if you dont have a Joust but plan on getting on down the road, then now is the time to order.
They are looking for pre-order commitments now to get official #s but they will happen pretty quickly/ bump to the front once they get to 40+ orders
Get on it and spread the word please!
