Default TFO Commander rods?

Was at a fishing shop near Kemah, TX; Marburgers. They had some 9'-0" 4pc8wt TFO Commander which are at a pretty reasonable price.

I've never heard of the "Commander" the clerk there didn't have much info. A "google" search provides nothing.

Anyone have expereince with these?

It would not surprise me if the Commander Series was a special make up (SMU) product for a retailer. Within the outdoor retailer industry, SMUs are very common place.

If you want verification, contact TFO to see if it is legit.

I'll check with TFO. The shop offering these is a very reputable shop that sells Flyfishing equipment as a side line. However they are a very trusted shop on the Galveston Bay.

Let you konw what I find out.

TFO makes a 9'/#8 4pc. for "Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing", did this rod feature the PHWFF logo on its butt section?

Here's what the folks at TFO say:

Peter-

The Commander series is very similar to the Professional series.
Let me know if you need any additional information.

Sound cool to me, the rods look good and are a bit less than the current Professional Series. Seems I can always use another 8wt.

I saw the TFO Commander rods in a shop in Tuscaloosa, AL today. They had a price tag of $99.
