John P, it was in the planning stage when I visited FoxPro some time ago. Actually, the new Krakatoa was further along, and that thing is insanely loud and clear.  The TX-1000 remote was not around at that time, but it is available now on both the CS-24C and the new Krakatoa.  I suspect it will be available on all the high end models before too much longer.

Yeah that's what I thought Jim.  I don't understand why FoxPro brings out these new product right prior to calling season when they are not even on the market?  Must be a marketing strategy, but I surely don't understand it.........

Sorry about that Jim.  They haven't updated the FoxPro site, but the CS-24C will be available for shipment in a few days. The price is $599.95.  I imagine A.P.Jones (Allpredatorcalls) will have them right away too.

The CS24C now features a rugged plastic housing instead of the metal housing that was used on the CS24B's.


How can rugged plastic be better than metal?     :confused:    Does it have a better sound?

Semp, don't let the term "Plastic" fool you.  That thing is tough as nails.  I don't think the sound will change.  The antenna is a big improvement for both durability and function.

I remember when lots of people pooh-poohed that "plastic" gun called Glock.    :laf:   

It will be interesting to read what the customer reviews say after it is on the market a while.

It will be very popular with the TX-1000 remote.

I had a CS24B and sold it for the Shockwave - big mistake, as far as I concerned.  I'm thinking of selling the Shockwave and going back to the CS24B/C.  The TX-1000 doesn't impress me at all, why do we need all the bells and whistles and 1,000 sounds on a caller?  I use two or at the most three sounds and have killed a fair amount of critters.

John P, I tend to agree with you about some of the advancements, but I see lots of advantages to the TX-1000 remote. It is a far superior navigation method, and is not affected by cold temperatures.  I do like the CS-24 a lot myself. That being said, Yote Yoda and 4 Paws have literally worn coyotes out with their two Shockwaves. They use them at the same time and evidently that gives the coyotes a new twist or two.  They both have a lot of programmed hunt sequences on their ecallers that allow them one click and watch.  You don't have to use the bells and whistles if you prefer not to.

Al - just got this from A.P.

John,
We do not have them in stock yet s FOXPRO has not yet released them. We have a large quantity on order, as soon as they release the unit, they will ship some to us. They have not yet given us a good timeline as to when they will finally release them.

John P, I just received a CS-24C a few days ago, and Yote Yoda received one too.  So, FoxPro has evidently started shipping them, and AP is sure to get his as fast as anybody.  Cabelas has the new Krakatoa in stock now so they must be getting close too. 

One of the best features of the TX-1000 is 50 presets, and they are so easy to set up.  I have mine set up in my preferred sequence and feel sure I will use them a bunch.
