Falcon Bucoo Micro Vs 13 Fishing Omen

Recommended Posts

I've been saving money and can finally afford my first real quality set up. I've decided on a Shimano Citica 200G6 and either a Falcon Bucoo or Bucoo Micro 6'10 or 7' MH or an *** 7'1 MH or a Revo S and a Veritas 7' MH. Which would you choose?

I would use this for worms and jigs.

I have 3 Omens and they're awesome. I do have the 7'1" MH and it would be great for worms and jigs.

If you can get your hands on all the rods and mount the reels to them, that's what you should do.  To me, they all seem like good, quality set ups at that price point and it really should come down to which one feels the best in your hands, not what some moron's (myself included) online say.

I love my *** rod, and the Bucoo rods are overrated in terms of power (MH is more of a Medium). They are super light though and I've wanted to try one out. That being said, I have a Revo SX that I love, and many people love the S as well. The Veritas MH is going to be stiffer, and closer to what most companies call a Heavy, but if you're in thicker grass or heavy cover that would be ideal. They are quality rods as well and I know that many people love Veritas rods. Have you considered Lew's reels? They offer some great products that can be had for a steal on here in the flea market or on ebay.

 

In the end, i'd say pick what YOU like and what feels good. Everyone's taste is a little different, and fishing is all about comfort (for me anyway). If you like how a setup feels, you'll fish it. If you don't, you won't. I have bought combos that I thought I'd love, and they don't feel like I thought they would on the water, so they don't get used.

Man.............haven't you been paying attention to these forums for like the last year,  the *** is the greatest rod ever gifted apon man. If you don't believe me, ask all the  experts here. In fact I personally saw, not one, BUT multiple $100 rods from other brands crumble into dust at the shear whisper of the word "***" when it was used around them. Legend has it, that the people who build Omens eat Carrot Stix for lunch, giving them super powers not seen since...............well, the Carrot Stix were the hand picked rods of the all mighty.

Yeah, but *** is not the only thing a carrot stix crumbles at.

I used one of my friends speed spools, but I hated the magnetic brakes and I didn't think it was very comfortable to palm.

Gotcha. You can't go wrong with any of what you listed above IMO. I just gave some general ideas of the stuff I've had experience with. Good prices on Revos are out there as well if you don't want to pay retail. I'm always looking for a deal!

If we forget about weight or balance for a second, what do y'all believe the most sensitive rod in the $100-150 range is? I've heard the almighty praise about the *** for its balance, but I've heard that it's not that sensitive.

I understand. I used his team lews (the $250 silver and red one) and loved it with the mag brakes all the way off. It was on a carrot stix so I didn't fish it to long out of fear of breaking the rod.

I own both rods in question. Though they are of different lengths and powers. I have the bucoo micro 6'10 H they call it a pitchin stick lol. It's overrated. Just compare the lure and line specs to any other mh rod and you'll see they are the same. It's rated the same as my powell 723's. Is it good rod? Yes I like it a lot. Matter of fact I have 2. It's super light and plenty sensitive. Now for the ***. It's a 7'3 H It's a frog rod for me so it doesn't see much all around use. I have used it for other things but the shorter handle makes it perfect for frogs since it doesn't hit my arm when working it. It's 13-3/4 vs 14-1/2 on the Falcon. I would say keep an open mind. The $100-150 rod selection is very large and you can find plenty of great rods. I'm not a Shimano guy at all but have heard great things about the crucial. Have you looked into Powell's at all? If you're buying retail it's only $10 more then the Bucoo. Also plenty of high quality used rods in the flea market or other places. I just added to your confusion but in the end it's all about what feels good to you.

A few months back my son shut the rod locker on my boat... with my favorite rod still sticking out. That rod was a falcon cara t7. I live near the falcon headquarters so I took the rod in and asked if they could put a new tip on it for a fee and id just live with it. I left there in shock with a brand new rod & a sincere thank you for being their customer. They guys at falcon are the type of guys you want to do business with. I strongly recomend the 6'10" pitchin stick, its very easy to handle and i love it for lighter jigs and texas rigged plastics.

I will second their customer service. I stepped on the butt end of one of mine and tore a nice chunk out of it. I called and they mailed me a new one free of charge. Yes I know it's like a $3 item but it was still nice of them.

I have a 7'1" MH *** Black and it's been very good to me. The reel seat takes a little getting used to and some people (I am one of them) have trouble casting it one-handed. The rod balances very, very well. I have had Pro Q's, various Shimano reels, and a Smoke on it and they were all feelin' pretty good. It's sensitive enough in my hands, but I use it for frogs and stuff that doesn't require sensitivity. 

 

To me personally, it feels better than Veritas, Mojo's, and Carbonlites. I don't believe a Falcon Bucco would be "better", but it certainly can be "as good", especially in the hands of a novice fisherman (not that I'm calling anyone a novice). Falcons are also made in the USA if that matters.

 

I am of course waiting for the other shoe to drop and the *** rod to explode on me one day. ***'s are certainly Flavor of the Year, but they're at least somewhat deserving of the praise they get.

 

At the end of the day though, it's still a $100 rod. It won't perform any miracles.

If we can bump it up to $160, Shimano Crucial.

every review i read said the *** had great sensitivity, better than some more expensive rods

I have a 7'1 MF *** that I use to throw weightless and light t-rigged plastics. It's easily my favorite rod.
