Thank you so much.
Okay. I understand now, I think. We had to run JKs a little stiffer in the past because the mold wouldn't cooperate and tended to produce sunken flight plates when we made them too soft. We believe we have solved that problem and will be able to produce substantially softer runs in the future. We did make one short run already, but it has not been stamped. Also, I am not sure it was done as soft as we can, but it was softer than we have been doing.
The hotstamp for newer JKs will have flight numbers. I don't know how much older stock we have that will be stamped with the newer stamp when they come up in the stamping rotation. All new JKs will have the new stamp. Also, the newly produced JKs will have different engraving on the bottom.
The ink on the bottom will still say JK, as will the stamp.
