CLYW has dropped photos, specs, and release details for their new signature model for 5x Czech National Champion, Petr Kavka. In an interesting twist, CLYW will be releasing a single production run of the prototype version of The Scout before releasing the final design in 2015. Check out full details below!
We’re pleased to announce that the final Scout design enters production in early 2015. The Scout is the new signature model for 5-time Czech National Champion Petr Kavka. Box art (shown above) by Jason Week.
For the design of The Scout, Petr wanted to blend two of his favorite return tops, the Chief and the Bonfire. We took the outer rim of the Chief and combined it with the profile of the Bonfire, then made some adjustments to the inner cups and weight distribution. The result is the return top that Petr won the 2014 Czech Nationals with, and something that we’re really happy to add to the 2015 CLYW lineup.
The prototype that Petr has been using for the past few months is a fantastic return top, one of our favorites! But Petr wanted to make some changes to it that make great sense for his play needs. We’ve made the changes, and the final design will be available early next year.
The current prototype of the Scout (shown above) is an amazing return top, and it’s exactly a half-way point between the Chief and the final Scout design. We love it, and we think that you will too. So we’re trying something a little crazy; for the first time ever, we’re going to release a production run of a prototype design.
The Advance Scout is limited to 300 pieces and we’ll never make them again. It will be available in solid colors only, direct from CLYW on our website, in early December. We’ll announce a release date soon.
We’re really excited about this release, and we’ve got some really excellent surprises planned…get ready for the Scout!
