I imagine they will both still be made, as they cater to a different market.

I guess they compliment each other pretty good 3CU and 4CU being light and cheap and Dragons having more features for a higher price.
Also Dragons don't really cover the small sizes.

What Im really wondering is if there is a revised WC Techfriend in the works as DMM and WC share both owner and manufacturing.
Techfriends could shed some weight and get a more narrow head for the small sizes.

The Dragon's doubled sling would be a nice feature upgrade for the next version of the Technical Friend.

They are calling this combo that I asked for the Demon -- Technical Friend (4CU) cam lobes on a Dragon stem/trigger.
