Cool. I think this is what was being referred to in the Gary Loomis AMA, I was wondering if new blanks were going to be announced at ICAST.

Looks like the seat shape that used to be on the Castaway rods, CUI had the same, and the Berkeley Series Ones were similar.

Spencer, I have always liked the Castaway seats and how they fit my hand. With these being made of carbon they should be fantastic!

Aleks - Great write-up on the new Edge Air Carbon line, and Congrats on the new product development!

Love the pro-shop idea, too. Will all NFC blanks and components be available to handle there, or just built rods? Would make an amazing fieldtrip!

I was so encouraged to see an ERN number listed on a mainstream site. Yes!

Alex’s-
Can you elaborate on when the X-ray Air blank line will be available? Or at least what models are planned and the intention of them? I see the 725 has a MBR designation.
Thanks.
