Falcon HD spinning rod ?

Snapped my medium-heavy Berkley Lightning rod last Monday at Surfside throwing a 1oz spoon....


Was looking at Academy website. They had this Falcon HD rod for around $38. Went to the local store and the price scanner was still showing $69.99


would have to order 2 to qualify for free shipping. good deal? or should I wait till their annual Rod Riot and get an Ugly Stik Elite or GX2?

I have had a 7ft med-heavy for about 8 years. Lots of stripers and reds caught on it.

I just bought the 7'-6" rod you mentioned without hesitating.

Great rod!

I have used falcons for decades only spinning rods, seems like they concentrate on the spinning rod market. I'm just hoping the guides hold up like they do on the old school models but that is a good deal I jumped on it last time they had it too.

The coupon is on the back of a nice brochure they mailed recently. The 25% off applies to all rods. Used it to purchase a St Croix rod yesterday.

hmm, haven't seen any Academy ads in the mail recently.


But, the rods arrived today. They are really nice, light weight, cork handle, and fuji guides.
