Meet the Falcon BuCoo rods,
designed to offer "A Lot" for very little money
So what exactly does the name "BuCoo" mean? The moniker actually comes from the
French word "Beaucoup" which means "A lot." Ask any angler in Louisiana how many
fish he caught and the answer is usually "Beaucoup," and it is this popular
expression that inspired both the name and design of this new lineup of rods.
BuCoo rods are finished with
lightweight EVA split foam grips
The BuCoo rods make use of blanks made right here in the USA and feature Fuji
Hardloy guides and exposed blank reel seats finished with lightweight EVA
split-foam grips. They felt light in our hands as each rod weighs in at just
under 4oz. and the overall finishes on the rods is both clean and simple.
Even though only 99-109 dollars
these rods are made in America
The BuCoo series has seven casting rods and three spinning models, and each rod
is specifically designed for a particular application. These rods are all Medium
to Medium-Heavy action and are 6'6" to 7' in length. The current BuCoo lineup
covers every bass application except tossing full sized swimbaits.

matching rods. That "modest" price is only $99.99-$109.99 depending on the

Conclusion: The Falcon BuCoo rods offer "Beaucoup" features and
performance for a rod priced at the one hundred dollar price point. With the
economy taking a toll on everyone a number of custom rod manufacturers
introduced mainstream priced rods this ICAST, and the Falcon BuCoo rods are
among the best when it comes to an aggressively priced series of rods that still
make use of Fuji components. These rods are a great value, and unlike many of
the other rods displayed at ICAST they are already available now.
