    New CCP Prototype

    Tommy:

    You let me handle the new prototype CCP 11 foot 3-6 oz several weeks ago and it felt really sweet. Any word when these may be on the market???

    Tom,

    I'm pretty excited about the new rod/blank. Working the details out now...

    I have a Wheels Reel 11 Foot which is my mainstay for fishing bait and heavy lures up north. I am wondering if this might not be a worthy successor.

    Tommy,

    Any word on the G2 availability? Will you have them soon or will it be a few more months? I will have the funds for the 13' 3-6 at the end of the month.

    They are not ready yet. Still working out the details and pricing. When the G2 comes out, it will most likely be phased in based on model and current inventory. If you are ready, then go with the current 13 3-6, it is a great rod and a top seller!!

    What is the G2 model? Is it just a particular length and weight or is it a new rod construction?

    Teff,

    G2 stands for generation 2. It will be the next evolution of the CPS rods. New rod construction.

    Thanks Tommy, I think I will go ahead and get one, that way it matches the 8-12! Call you next week.

    What's going to be the major difference in the new blanks? Could I have a 70/30 split 6-10 or 8-12 g2 cps in the future?

    Also wondering when we’ll see these. The 50/50 split is a main selling point for me due to portability

    Tommy, Do you have any employees with weak morals we could pay to leak information on the G2 rods? Especially the 13' 3-6 and a possible release date?

    Hey Tommy, will there be any difference regarding the physical weight of the new blanks (compared to the original models)? Thanks!

    Scooter,

    The new Gen 2 rods will be lighter with better casting performance or they won't make it past testing...

    Will they still be slide-in ferrules or will they be slip-over ferrules? I prefer the latter style.

    The CPS heavy rods are and will be parallel butt with the tip inserting into the butt section with a 50/50 split. My lighter rods (12' and under) have the tip over butt joint.

    I have a full and complete test/demo set (entire lineup) being produced now. As soon as these pass testing , it is on to production. I know it is slow, but it is important to get it right... The first gen rods took almost 2 years to go to production. I hope I can beat that this time...

    Are you planning on adding any rods to the lineup?

    Same design with a more modern carbon fiber blend and upgraded to FUJI K guides.
