Does any one know why Falcon Rods are made in China, when they advertise "Made In The U.S. of A."?
Waterloo's custom rods are made in Victoria, TX. I didn't know that the lower priced ones were made in Mexico, but wouldn't doubt it. Look at Laguna Rods, I believe ALL of there rods are made here.Falcon ticked me off with this as well. The Coastals used to be made in the US. They moved production to China, hid the "made in China" sticker on the butt of the rod, and didn't lower the price though it was now cheaper for them to produce. Seems like they're trying to trick people. Shady. I had the same issue with a Waterloo rod advertised as made in the US actually made in Mexico (customer service blew me off when i complained) and Kestler (they moved production of some rods to china too). It's all St. Croix and DUCE for me now. Honest and great service.
