I sincerely doubt it. I think they have about 3-4 employees.
Are you interested in the rods - or - the lines. Take a look at the Wulff Ambush lines for single handed Skagit.

Just very curious about the rod. I wonder if TFO might make their rods. I have carted the Wulff line...it casts nicely. Bill

I checked with them and they don't make their own rods.

William,
I am in the process of teaching myself single-handed Skagit casting. I am using the Wulff Ambush Short lines that work very well for this type of casting. The OPST lines are designed to use with tips. The Wulff lines are all integrated and are designed to use as-is and go up to 325 grains.
I am using a couple of CTS blanks that I had made custom for me - 6 and 7 wts
I'd like to share experiences if you are doing the same.
You can email me - your email is hidden
Regards
