We're lucky to have had early visibility to the pre-production rods to see just how lightweight, sweet-loading yet powerful his precise tapers and advanced materials can be!
In fact Dana, Tyler, and other expert casters have played a big role in Nobuo's refinement of certain CND spey rods. More than visibility but direct interaction during the design process.
CND rods definitely set a new price/performance mark in the Spey rod marketplace. Nobuo's willingness to work directly with us in development of rods ensures that they meet the mark on the rivers we fish.
According to recent conversations with Nobuo, I think it's safe to say we can expect product availability in the early part of this calendar quarter.
I will pass along any and all news on this topic, as I am sure Dana and Nobuo himself will too.
