The $99.00 rods have standard guides not micro guides. The Bucoo's with micro guides are $129.00 You got a crazy deal.

and i got it by accident... i was just walking through the rod aisle, without looking at anything in particular, basically cruising to get to the other side, when a yellow rod catched my eye... i recognized it as a Skeet rod, so i stopped to look at it closely, since i had only seen them online.... then, this man comes to me and tells me the Tournament Choice rods lying next to the Skeets were great to have if you needed a rod to lend to a friend or something... i tell him my friends have their rods, and i dont really have a lot of friends who fish, and that i was just hanging around... then he directs me to the Bucoo (i had already walked past them without noticing) and says "well, you may take a look at this ones, they are just $30, originally retail for $130.. i already have one in my cart"... so i checked them, inspected them to see if they had any problem (they didnt), and immediately took the last 2 they had in stock.... so, angels do exist haha

I have a 7' MH and 2 6'6" M one casting one spinning. They are fantastic rods. I would use the 7''er for your spinner bait rod over your Veritas.

even if the Bucoo is M and the Veritas MH??

and in that case, what would you use the Veritas for?? i can always take it back to the store, but, i already have it, so i prefer to put it to good use...

The Veritas is the perfect Senko/soft plastics rod..... The Falcon you have is great for spinner baits. It's softer and allows the fish to fully take the bait before you try to set the hook, same with cranks.

I would choose the Falcon Clark Wendlandt over the Veritas if that's what your asking....

thanx.

so, if you choose the wendlandt for plastics, and the bucoo for spinnerbaits... what would you do with the veritas??

i think i will be able to decide once i can get to the water with both rods... so far, i have only unpacked them and handled them around in the house, but i have not even mounted a reel on any of those 2 rods yet....

well, returning it is an option, but it implies a 3 hour drive... so i would rather put a reel on it and use it for something... now i just need to figure out what to tie to it....

So between the Veritas and the Bucoo micro, which one is better? I've got the Veritas and I love it, but every time I see a Falcon Bucoo micro at Wally world it calls my name.

I have fished several AG Veritas rods, and feel the Bucoo is a far better rod. Extemely light and sensitive, and the grip is far more comfortable than the Veritas. The reel seat is much better on the Bucoo as well. I now have 3 Bucoo's and I will be getting a couple more next season. I have a 7' MH casting, 6'6" M spinning and a 7' medium spinning.

is there a problem with the reel seat on the veritas?? i have not put a reel on mine yet, but the "seat" looks different, not like any reel seat i have seen...

unfortunately my veritas and my bucoo are completely different, the first one is 6"9´ MH, the second one is 7´ M, so i feel there would be no real comparison... but i guess each one can have its place on the boat, and hopefully i will land a bunch of fish with each... since i fish a lot of spinnerbaits i think i will be using the veritas a lot, but i also have some cranks i plan on tying to the bucoo as well....

I hate the reel seat on the Veritas as it is not comfortable. It also allows the reel to move side to side, no matter how much you tighten it down. The 7'M Bucoo works very well with spinner baits. The Veritas you have makes for a good weightless worm rod or Wacky rig.

thanx.

this is my first dedicated spinnerbait rod, and i thought i needed a MH for them. i guess i will have to try them with both rods to see what i prefer.

i have never fished wacky or weightless worms, all my worms, or plastics for that matter, are always texas rigged... but im not against trying something new, so i guess i will be doing a lot of experimenting this fall...
