ironmaster lottery

Has anyone participated in this and what should I expect? I am hoping to either purchase the Ironmaster 45 and an addon kit or heavy handle kit, or the regular Ironmaster 75 kit with stand. Is it structured as a cart option and then it assigns a lottery number?

Anybody own a pair of Gopher Urethane Bumpers?

The reason I ask is they appear to have a deeper groove around the edges for easier handling. Is is noticeably different than other bumpers, or just a photographic shadow effect in the photos that they use for marketing purposes? Not much info about them anywhere.
