The TFO Pro Special is built specifically for Cabela's. It uses the same blank as the standard production TFO Pro rod, but it has different hardware; handle, reel seat, guides, etc. I like the hardware that is used on the regular Pro better, but I think the Pro Special is one of the best bargains out there, especially when you can get it on sale for $79. Sounds like a screaming good deal to me.
