I think this thought comes from the X-Link Soft compound. It's only produced in the late fall/early winter. That compound is significantly different from the other compounds.
The thing that really surprised me was when they showed the mold being used, there was also a shoe mold on the same press. That means either they run two totally different lines of product through the same machine at the same time, or, for some reason they decided it wasn't worth doing 4 disc molds at a time.
That seems to me like quite a bit of underutilization.
