Jamey, it is model TFO 08 133 4 P, 13'3" and was developed with primary input from our Skagit afficianado dealers and customers in the Northwest. The taper is completely different from the other TFO rods and was specifically designed for the new Skagit lines.
I fished it two weeks ago on the Salmon River NY and it DOES really feel like cheating.
I am completely new to this, but I got a look at the TFO Skagit yesterday out here in Portland. Didn't get to cast it (in a parking lot), but it flexed way into the butt section compared to the other rods (TFO, Sage, and GLoomis). The rep and shop seemed pretty excited about it for NW fishing.
Either this rod spent a lot of time down at the beach, out on the grass, (a place I don't often go) or the TFO rep just wasn't around when I went looking. But for one reason or another, I never got to try this one.
