I'm sure we will...
I laid my sticky paws on a pair not long ago: when I bumped into Tony Faulkner at an industry thing he rummaged in his bag and pulled out an early production test pair of these mics which he's been working with... as well as a much larger and soon-to-be-released Rode wonder that I can't talk about yet... ;)
As many will know, Tony has been helping Rode develop quite a few interesting high-end mics of late, and Rode is raising its game to play seriously alongside the long-established European manufacturers.
The TF-5s are very KM84-ish in terms of size, style, quality, and precision. I gather Tony's not a fan of KM84s (unlike most of the rest of the recording world), but he told me the TF-5s are "rather nice".
So I'm very much looking forward to having a proper play.
