I did the beadless X mold as I thought the beaded would be too crazy over stable, but apparently I was wrong. The beaded X will stay. The dome comes and goes with the plastic batches we get from the manufacturers. Right now we are molding relatively flat, however the Gator isn't in right now. Hopefully, we will be in a flat plastic trend when we run them again.
