Falcon Rods LFC-5-166 Herm Special Baitcasting Trigger Rod

I’m so thrilled with my Shimano Curado 200E7 that it just seemed wrong to mate it with my trusty 20 year old Team Daiwa rods even for temporary purposes . I really wanted to try the G Loomis Bronzeback Casting Rods but they are twice my rod budget. So after a lot of research I settled on a brand unknown to me. That brand is Falcon Rods. I selected the LFC-5-166 Herm Special Baitcasting Trigger Rod from the list of available rods at Cabela’s Item Number: UK-114172. The rod specifications are as follow

  • Rod Series-LowRider
  • Rod Type-XG Casting
  • Rod Action-Medium Heavy
  • Rod Name-LR Herm Special
  • Rod Flex-Medium Fast
  • Fuji Guides-9
  • Line Weight-12-20 lb.
  • Lure Weight-1/4 to 3/4 oz.
  • Rod Length (feet)-6′ 6″
  • Handle (inches)-9″

This rod configuration can handle worms, jigs and spinner baits.

Now one thing to note most folks might prefer to mate this reel with a slower retrieving reel such as the Shimano Curado CU200E5 for its 5:1 ratio. I prefer the 7:1 ration on the Curado 200E7.

Ill post more after the rod arrives and I get it on the lake
