Been getting into beach fishing over the last four years after a very very long spell away, so really been out of touch with the leap forward in tackle technology and all the extra add on's that are now available.
But one thing that I can't get my head round is why should a ct multiplier cost more than it's cs cousin when the cs version from the engineering point of view have more moving parts involved in it's making?
Is it a chase of white bread v brown bread syndrome:g:

everyone wants the ct versions, level liners no where near so popular, there for they can get away with charging a higher price A

In the Global Market, sales for the CS (level wind) is considerably greater than that of the CT open cage alternative.

So volume production keeps the costs down.
Diverting the attention of the production line to what is a relatively small (mainly UK) market, puts the premium price on the CT.:hammer:

ct and cs style multipliers start life as fundamentally the same reel on the production line surely, then the cs has the level wind system added,
regardless of the UK market it still sounds arse about face, like if you purchased a motor for instance and wanted alloy wheels you'ed pay more than a base model and from my point of view for the time I've be fishing my purchase rate of ct style multies out ways cs models by 10 to a big fat zero, so I still don't get the price difference:headhurt:
