Redrumm: We didn't go for the exact size fin of the ek9 ones, we just used its fin shape as a base for ours, but if everyone wants we could go a millimeter or two taller.

We're actually done with the design. we're just checking on everyones preference such as drilled holes, painted or not, and if they want us to include mounting hardware. It actually looks perfect size in person.

If you dont like the size, no need to buy it. Hes making them, and hes fine /w the size.

I say have a base price for painted/non painted, and then additional charges for drilled and hardware.

Good job on these, they look great btw.

Thanks.

Well for our first batch we'd like to have just one set of splitters with all the same preferences. If it goes well we might consider putting out more options.

chill dude he even said so. it's not like a mm or 2 is going to make me reconsider not getting one, that was just my input on it. Even more when it sounded like a possibility.

We'll give it to the weekend and we're going to finalize everything and start making the first set.

Well now that everyone knows the design is final, let's keep it civilized.

Feared: Thanks for coming to my defense though.

i know i dont have to buy them and i know he is making them too. He asked for feedback and thats what i was giving him as well as another member. IMO i think it would look a little better bigger. people have been making rep's for awhile now of these and tend to go bigger after a few batches are sold .
