It was definitely me, and I think Cold Iron might have heard from his contact, as well. I was told cappuccino shell and maybe at least one other color, as "the next webgem". But that was before the suede Strands came out.
He didn't have any info on which models. Also, I don't expect them to be discounted very much, if at all. Supposedly it's just taking advantage of Horween being able to supply shell in these colors.
