Don’t know what the point of this post truly is but who else hopes that we soon see some new blank color options?!

Yea I can do it myself but every time I look for information about it or ask I get guys telling me that it adds too much weight to the blank and that there’s no paint that will hold up to the constant bending, and my argument to that is your gonna tell me all the thread work some guys do weighs less than paint? And if paint won’t hold up than what is MHX and st croix and every manufacturer who paints their blanks using?
