Just got off the phone with Cushcraft, ordering some parts. The guy I
order from has been there quite awhile, says they expect to have the new
402-BX available some time in August.
Further he stated there is no way they can provide the parts to retrofit
an existing 402-CD. Boom size increased to 2.5 inches, elements have
been beefed up, coils are however the same.
No current intention to release a 3 element version until they see how
well this newest 2 element version sells. Didn't discount the
possibility they will have one in the future.
