Thanks for catching that raspberry-patch ... That'll be corrected pronto ... !!!
About the S rods
We do still have several of the S rod actions in the shorter/lighter grained Trout Spey series ...
... But with introduction of the new Highlander CX rods <> The longer/higher grained S rods proved to be redundant.
The S rods served as a "go-between" action from the Highlander C to the MKS, with S rods being lighter in hand then either the MKS or CX.
We learned a lot from material use in development of the S rods, and (when compared to comparable "C" rods) also learned to appreciate the S rods stronger top ends, faster speed of recovery, and slightly deeper loading capabilities.
All of these characteristics were applied to the new CX rods ... So in truth, I guess I'd have to say that the new CX rods are a combination of the best physical characteristics of both the C and S rods ... While still maintaining the same uniform progressive power and flex typical of the Highlander Classics.
I knew that there would be those that would be disappointed in the elimination of the S rods, as we offered these rods for 8 years ... And several have told us so ... !!!
... But after fishing the new CX rods ... Most of them have forgiven me ... };^) ... !!!
As a side note: We do still have a remaining inventory for several of the previous generation S and MKS blanks, and will be closing them out over the coming months. They will be posted in the Spey Shop "Specials" link.
