Default Rv-8 landing gear

I’m considering upgrading the landing gear on my -8. I contacted Grove but unfortunately they told me they no longer make them. There was also someone else that was making aftermarket gear, but I don’t remember who it was. From what I remember they were making them in both aluminum and titanium. So, if anyone has a set of Groves they like to sell, I’d be interested in them. Also, if anyone knows the name and contact information of the other company that was making them, I’d appreciate it if you could post that information.
Thanks!

Thanks Riseric for directing Mark33 to our website! He called us straightaway and got the information he was after.

FWIW: We do have one set of RV-8 Aluminum Airfoil gear currently in-stock and a whole 'nother batch of legs coming in springtime.
