My understanding is it's the exact same blank as the originial. It's not an SUR1418, it's an SU1418. They were going to bring the 1509 back out as well, but I think they cancelled that.

They were trying to re-engineer the 1509 to a 60/40 or 50/50 spilt. I havent heard if they were successful or not, and they were only going to do it if they could keep the action on teh rod the same. But yes teh 1418 is supposed to be the original taper. I exchanged several emails with Karry Batson over these 2 blanks, and that was what my understanding was on them.
