Refreshed in 2012, the new Cardiff is only available in one size with two gear ratio options.  The C2000SS model is specially tuned for the Area Game with a low retrieve speed, extra shallow spool, and a specially tuned Area Drag.  The Area Drag, while still having the same max drag setting as the non Area Drag, has a lesser practical drag strength allowing for fine tuning on the water with light lines.  The C2000HGS model is designed to handle both the Area and Native trout games.  It features a slightly deeper spool and harsher drag curve for fighting fish in current and a higher gear ratio for varied retrieve speeds.  The C2000SS features a grey handle and the C2000HGS features a gold handle.
