Baritone spruce body with tenor scale. It seems to be an interesting experiment. It is priced well as well!
Any one tried it out there?

Nice concept. I'd like something like that, if it weren't made with laminate. Prefer a regular non-slotted headstock, too.

Very interesting. Many times, when I play low G tenor for a while, and then go back to a reentrant tenor, it sounds way thin. Having the bigger bari body with the tenor scale might solve that issue for me. Are there other brands that make production ukes like this?

Yes I just saw some yesterday online, I think it was a Romero "grand tenor" as they called it.

I have a tenor model tk70r, great sounding and playing.
