Current Caldwell Checkmate production

Just to add more clarification. Pete Caldwell has the molds. No Pulsare molds were sold to anyone, or any of the molds that were purchased from Global Marine Power/Hustler. Maybe Coop can chime in to clear things up. Coop had some smaller Checkmate molds that he salvaged from Checkmate but not the Pulsare molds.

Hey Jup. Pete has all the molds that he bought. But I also have what I have.

Word on the street is Global Marine is buying back all the Checkmate molds and brand. Joe’s son will be running it, supposedly. There are still some financial entanglements related to Caldwell that need to be sorted out. But I guess at some point the brand may come back, who knows how long that may take.

I also spoke to Joe a few months ago. He told me he has no intention of bringing Checkmate back. It’s hard enough keeping the manpower working at Hustler let alone trying to sell them to a very narrow demographic…unless something has changed….
