1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm waiting for ROTM to either restock their double monks or begin a new double monk pre-order, as the case may be, because I particularly like the look of the more rounded last ROTM chose for their dubs. Then, I noticed today that Sid Mashburn has his dubs back in stock for the smaller sizes (I'm 8-8.5D). Does anyone have experience with both to say whether Sid's dubs are worth $190 more? What is the last like? It looks a little narrow. Also, are they really that tan, or are they darker in RL?

    Don't own the SM monks, but I did try on a pair once. The width is slightly wider than a standard D. They call it a D+ or something. I believe the color is slightly darker than it shows on the web site.

    SM Double Monks definitely run wide.

    Sid Mashburn Double Monk's definitely run a little wide. I am usually an E width, as the Mashburn's are labeled as D. With that being said, I also sized down 1/2 a size. And they fit really comfortably. Hope this helps.

    I'm actually waiting on my ROTM's to come in the mail... so I will post somewhere here when I do receive them.

    Howard Yount has some lovely dub monks at $200 off. Hard to say if Mashburn's dub monks are that much better.

    I love my Howard Younts, and selected them over the SMs. The savings had little to do with it.
