He made good parts that were consistent and stayed in business.

Not the smoothest or the sweetest but just right and yeah the take down rocks. I don't think that the easier field stripping made it win. I think the business design did. He made em in house with overhead covered and at a price that competitors couldn't beat for the same level of performance. It's just a killer value proposition. I can get a brand new made in USA body in a variety of colors for under 39 dollars. No one else even comes close.

The phantom is so dialed that most people making Nelson's just make bodies for phantoms. Go make a set of Nelson guts that work well for cheaper than you can buy from CCI. It ain't happening. Even if you could get a better feel like the marginal improvement is just not worth it.

I've had a lot of Nelson's I think feel better than a phantom but the whole package doesn't stand up to the phantom.
