Comments: Got the 7' Med Hvy, and I can tell you that the Med-Fast taper(hard to find) makes it the best lipless crankbait & square bill rod ever. VERY LIGHT. And plenty of backbone. BUT it's not durable at all & grips are super slippery. Knocked the rings out of 2 of the micro guides twice. The guides bend REAL easy too. My $49 dollar All Star rod I replaced with this lasted 13 years & never had a single issue. Can't recommend the BuCoo.
From: Chad: Acworth, GA 11/11/14
Comments: The rod is light weight, strong, and definitely sensitive but the microguides are horribly. I fished 2 med heavys and 2 meds for a whole year to properly review them. Meds handled 1.5 squarebills just fine and med heavy handled the deep 5xd cranks pretty sound as well. No real flaws until I finished a fishing trip and began to clean my rods and noticed ALL micro guides were bending forwards and all cracked from the glues holding them. To make things short, great rod ..just dunno for the price..theres better cheaper rods out there like the ghost duckett.

Comments: I bought a clearance 6'10" pitching stick from my local retailer for under $50. I have used the rod in heavy cover pitching 3/8-1/2 ounce jigs to large and smallmouth bass using 16 pound sunline fluoro.Rod is very powerful, and I had no issues landing a ton of fish in the 2-4 lb range, pulling them out of heavy cover with ease. Sensitivity is just ok. Micro guides are awful. They get bent far too easily, and it feels like the wide diameter line encounters quite a bit of resistance. Not a bad rod, but I would recommend the regular Bucoo over the micro.

Comments: I have been using this rod for a few months now and It has a very good and versatile action. Great for so many applications and strong for boat landing fish,good on bladed jigs,buzzbaits,top water even small jigs and worms fish very well on it! The only gripe is the guides that bend like butter,other than that is a great puchase,light and confortable to fish all day!
From: Charlie: Trenton, NJ 8/19/14
Comments: I have the 7'MH Trap Caster and the 7'M The MH is strong enough to pitch/punch a good size jig (I use mostly half oz football or all terrain) and get fish out of pretty thick cover. It has made a couple "creaking" sounds on some heavier hook sets but no apparent damage or faults yet other than one of the guides glue cracked a bit when ripping a fish out of some coontail grass. Just re-glued it and it's fine now. STRONG rods for the weight! Great sensitivity. I use the 7' M for spinnerbaits and light Texas rigs and worms. The other day I caught 8 fish from the 1-2.5lb range on my 7'M and it performed flawlessly as well as 2 fish that were 3 lbs while running a spinnerbait a little deeper. Great casting capabilities due to the micro guides- something I didn't believe would truly affect casting as much as it has. The EVA handle is the perfect diameter, just a little bit fatter than other rods which helps relieve hand/grip fatigue and allows me to fish all day without hand cramping. Excellent balance, sensitive, strong, comfortable and beautiful USA made fit and finish! I would've paid retail for these rods and probably will for the 7'6" heavy rod. Thanks Falcon and keep it up!

Comments: got the 7' MH and i love it. first of all, i fish from a yak so all my rods got to be 7' max. this is my go to rod. spinner bait, crankbaits, jigs. whatever the occasion may be, this rod can handle it. very strong back bone and nice tip for working lure. a 3lb 5oz fish jumped out from my yak while still hooked and i had to swing it back. NOT a problem... love it
From: Edmar: MA 7/9/14
Comments: I picked up this rod for $70.00 on a closeout sale at a local sporting goods store.I had an older model Shimano Chronarch laying around so i decided to spooler her up with 15lb Seaguar fluor and put it in the boat for next trip to Kentucky Lake.This rod impressed me from the start handling many fish in the 3 to 5lb category... fishing watermelon red brush hoggs pegged with a peg-x - tungston 1/2oz green pumpkin strike king weight and 4/0 Gamagatsu EWG hook. This set up was deadly fishing laydowns and elbow bushes.
From: Michael: Ripley, TN 6/2/14
Comments: Stellar rod for the price... picked up a new 7'MH Trap Caster for under 50.00....once in a lifetime deal for what is quite possibly the most versatile rod I own...and I have Power Tackle, Cashion, St.Croix, and Kistler rods. The weight of the Bucoo Micro is well under 4 oz. No other rod company can match that at this price point. The quality is equal to that of a $200- $250 rod... EVA foam grips rock... Fuji guides and reel seat...matte black finish is very clean looking. Falcon Rods made in America!!!! Awesome!!!!
From: Corey: Gettyburg, PA 3/31/14
Comments: I was waiting to get the Kistler carbon steel 6'9" for jigs and spinnerbaits but iit is not on the line up at TW any more. I found this on sale at walmart a week ago and got the 6'10" heavy and I love it! Is perfect for skipping jigs and should be great for spinnerbaits and worms,it has a good parabolic action and feels great on the hand. I've seen some bad reviews about breaks and splits so I hope it lasts,the guides look a little cheap but only time will tell,so far I am happy!
From: Charlie: Trenton, NJ 3/10/14
Comments: I bought a 7' MH last year and couldn't believe the quality and sensitivity of this rod. For the price it's a great rod. Like most everyone else, I have used a lot of other brands but this rod is incredibly light and powerful. I was fishing a tournament with my son this past fall and he used it all day pitching and flipping cover. He commented several times about how light and sensitive it was and couldn't believe I only paid $110 dollars for it. Instead of grabbing another rod with a different lure to pitch, he cut the line and put on a different setup several times throughout the day. Great rod!
From: Scott: NE 3/3/14
Comments: I have two of these rods and love them guides do bind a little easy but they all do when u step on them lol. I want a great fluke rod for less then 180 $ and to also be micro. Is this the best out there or is there better in that price range?
From: Casey: Jennings, LA
Comments: Great rod for the price and made in the USA. Sensitivity is good with all the backbone needed. Foam rubber handle is a nice firm rubber not the squishy type that gets water logged. The only upgrade needed is to the micro guides, they can get bent against the rod very easily. This can be a problem if stepped on or hit against something. You also need be careful in and out of rod tubes.
From: CJ: Lejeune, NC
Comments: The Rod is nicely balanced and very light. Every time I fish, I notice a guide or two bent over. After about a year of bending them back right, one broke off, which I started to expect. The guides are way too thin. I prefer to spend the extra $10 for a Quantum KVD which is also nicely balanced and very light, and the guides are strong.
From: Russ: Okmulgee, OK, USA
Comments: great rod and for the deal I got it for was amazing. At Walmart it was on sale for 80 dollars and its just as good as 150 dollar rods and more. It has a very sensitive tip but a very strong backbone perfect for frogs and jigs. Definitely recommend it
From: Charlie: VA
Comments: I bought the 7' heavy back in March and I primarily use it as my frog rod and all around topwater rod. Everything about the rod is great, the backbone, casting, tip speed, however I've had issues with the guides. I've had two guide inserts pop out and the general durability on the eyes is lacking with mine bending very easily. Ill be spending the extra $70-80 for a duckett.
From: Ben: VA
Comments: I got the 6'10" heavy action rod. the rod is incredible. sensitive, powerful any plenty of backbone to pull hogs from cover. the only downfall of this rod is that the little cork butt end of the rod is a little cheap the cork is already pealing but otherwise this rod is well worth it.
From: Andrew: CO
Comments: Have 4 of these rods... love all of them! I broke 2 of them and got them replaced but it was my fault both times. Just be careful with them and youll be fine. as light and sensitive as everyone says!
From: Brian: IL
Comments: I got the 6'6 MH "Herm" Its my go to Pond/Truck rod. I can pretty much use it for anything. Really happy with it so far. I mostly fish the Cara Micro, and this is just as good if not the same, other then no cork. You'll be happy. I paired it with a Lew's. My go to Rod!
From: Timmy: CA
Comments: Best rod made under $200. period. lightest most sensitive and toughest. get one or two. or ten
From: Scott: ME
Comments: I just picked this rod up the other day and have only fished with it a handful of times however I have it paired with a quantum pt smoke reel and #12 berkley trilene 100% fluro and I can cast a weightless senko a country mile. This rod is very durable and VERY VERY lightweight just buy one and I promise you won't be disappointed.
From: CJ: York, PA
Comments: Great rods, picked up 2 of these to try out and love how they feel. Great product. And to Jason, I have the 7'm action rod and use 10lb on it. Has great action. Found another on clearance for $69 and had to get it. Great rods, will be adding many more of these to my collection when I can.
From: William: Long Beach, CA
Comments: i have three of these and quite a few other micro rods and have not had issues with any of their guides
From: Bryan: NC
Comments: just picked this up it looks and feels good glad to have it pick one up
From: Tyler: US
Comments: To answer the question about the guides being good. These are fuji guides the best there is, never had a problem with the fuji micro guides. Let me tell you that this rod in my opinion is the best rod for a mere 130.00 bucks you can buy, had mine for two years never had a problem and just ordered the7' "3" Heavy.
From: Scott: Mt Vernon, IL
Comments: i got the Bucoo Micro Guide Casting Rod 7' Medium for jerk baits . This thing is awesome cast a mile with the Shimano Caenan 100 Series . I was worried about the micro eyes but seems this is the way i will be going from here on . Love it .
From: Kevin: Johnson, KY
Comments: Got the 6 10 medium heavy paired with a smoke reel. I use it as my jigging/creature bait rod. Works well, perfect amount of backbone. Really nice rod.
From: Justin: Virginia Beach, VA
Comments: the best blank no question for the dollar super light just plain awesome! i have 250-400 rods this easily performs just as well as some of the expensive blanks in weight and sensetivity. killer job falcon !!!!!! I put a pfluger cetina baitcaster on my 7 foot medium heavy the best combo in the buisness for around that 200 dollar mark cant get any better!!!!
From: Jim: Lake Tomahawk,WI
Comments: Have two of these rods one 7m and one trap caster I have landed one 9 pounder on the trap caster and numerous 6 pounders. The 7m is my go to for shakey heads and I have landed dozens of bass over 6 and a few over 8 with no problems.
From: Bryan: Wilmington, NC
Comments: my first falcon, and I am impressed. I got the 6' 10" heavy pitchin rod and it has a great feel; light, balanced, and a very nice moderate/fast action, not all tip.
From: Jason: MI
Comments: Great rod for the money, I own a lot of rods and this is my favorite. The micro guides do seem to work, that along with the action, this rod will launch a bait. A plain, no bling, Amercian made, awsome rod. The medium power rod has a moderate taper better suited for treble hook baits, and you should have no problem with 6-8lbs. fish.
From: Dave: Central Coast
Comments: does anyone know hwo this rod in the 7 foot Medium power would do against a 4-6 lb bass with 10lb line paired with a shimano caenan? just bought one and im starting to wonder if i should have getton the Medium Heavy... hmmm, any ansswers or comments? Much appreciated :)
From: Jason: CA
Comments: I have the 7'mh. very light and sensitive. this is a great rod for the price. you will not be disappointed with this rod. I will definitely be buying more of them.
From: Nick: IL
Comments: Good rod! Been fishing it for bout 6-7 months now and have had no problems. It is very sensitive and it is also light. I really like this rod and im going to be buying another one pretty soon. If you have a budget I highly recommend this rod, you WONT be sorry you bought it. It is a REALLY nice rod! P.S gonna be paring this with a lews tourny pro reel gonna be an awesome combo!
From: Robbie: FL
Comments: i am a tackle junkie and either own or have atleast used just about every rod you can get from TW between the $100-$200 range and for $130 you cant beat one of these. i believe there are a couple better rods for under $200 but both of them are still very close to $200. the non microguide version is also 20-30$ less than this one to and is also excellent.
From: James: Ft. Polk, LA
Comments: awesome rod! so light and the micro guides really do enhance the casting
From: Griffin: Indiana
Comments: AWESOME rod, 7 ft MH, 15 # seaguar invisx, with a quantum accurist, perfectly balanced around 1 lbs rod, best casting jig rod ever had. has plenty of backbone to do some good dock work, and so sensitive with the flouro, very very sweet, 5 fish so far from 4 to 8 lbs no problems!
From: Will: Central, NC
Comments: I have the 7' Heavy, super sensative and very light rod you can feel every tick and bump. The heavy gives you more backbone to set the hook hard but has the look of a medium/heavy rod, I will be ordering another for my Carbonlite reel. Best rod on the market for a wimpy $129.95 compared to other high dollar rods. Getcha one.
From: Scott: Mt. Vernon, IL
Comments: I just got a 7ft mh. This is one of the least expensive rods I own and I absolutely love it! Two of my buddies just got theirs too and they really like them. Very sensitive and launches baits. With the American made blank these are going to be hard to turn down for my next rod even though I've been a very hard core Powell fan.
