We didn't really go shorter. The 36DS and 35DB are both the same length. The proto 36DS cap extended further than we needed so we shortened the cap...but only after the 36DS name was picked. Both will be 35'-10".
As for shipping...that one won't go into production for another few weeks, so it will be a bit yet for shipping. Late Spring.
