    Well, on the other hand, there is no word of it on Jobo's own site. But Firstcall are the official Jobo lab products distributor, so they might know more than the Jobo webmaster (where lab gear is just one minor section among eight).

    Considering the cpp2's are going for 3x what they were four years ago, yeah, this would help.

    Unless you're selling lol. I'd like to see them bring back the steel Hewes/Jobo reels.

    Hewes is still making them and you can order them directly. http://www.hewes.co.uk/

    So, does that suggest that they will also start manufacturing the compatible tanks again? No word of that in the article, though they do mention tank compatibility.

    Well, it does suggest that they will not stop manufacturing the compatible tanks they currently have in their catalogue (http://www.jobo.com/web/JOBO-System-Tanks.850.0.html). But I doubt they'll take up any of the less common tanks which they discontinued. And whether you can get any of their current or future products without ordering overseas is yet another question - Jobo darkroom gear is easy to get in Europe, but your question (as well as the bizarre prices at which used tanks sell on ebay US) rather suggest that you are out of a local distributor...
