The KC rexwood was on pre-order for hours, and then on sale for hours when they actually launched. My sense is they were both just big runs, which is awesome. We're just not used to them sticking around for more than 5 minutes!
The RexWood Shaman offered to rescind pre-orders based on an initial misprint/confusion and "wood" handled Spydies seem to be generally less in demand, the KC pakkawood exclusives are also consistently available. There's always variance given the materials and models, the SS stretch is easily found and one of my personal favorite sprints in the last year, the KW s90v delica exclusive also didn't seem to hit for many. The CF/S90v shaman was either the first or second non-base version of the model available I believe and lasted days at many places when it came out, that was a regular production-level sprint.
All just to say an increased run obviously makes an impact but there's a big difference if they ordered 3x vs 5x vs 10x normal to extend the availability exponentially from <5 minutes to several hours, and that info would help clarify how much can be attributed to increased supply vs softening demand now that there are a few Shaman sprints out there, or at a $250+ price point (which may speak to the CF/s90v versions availability). No practical reason, I got one this morning anyway and like I said I'm glad to see this level of availability either way as it will help keep profits to the actual businesses involved, but as an econ nerd who enjoys Spydies just following along as companies continue to try to find the elusive sprint/exclusive sweet spot
Interestingly the "available quantity" in cart is back to 2.
