I own a Falcon Bucoo micro guide rod. It is their "Trap Caster" model. I caught it on a really ridiculous sale at Walmart, so a rod that retailed at around $100 went for like $30. Regardless of that the rod is great, I love it. It is a medium power moderate action rod that handles small to mid sized cranks, square bulls and rattle traps. I have no problem believing it would work a spinnerbait well, I just never tried it. i have heard others talk highly about a few of their other rods. I know many use and love their "lizard dragger" and frog rods.  Beyond that. other members are going to have to help you.

I know my rod has a Daiwa Tatula Type R and has handled tidal bass up to 5 pounds and some nice big stripers as well.

Great rods for the money. The Carolina Lizard Dragger has been in my boat for many years.

I own three different Micro Bucco casting rods and they are all very good for the techniques they are designed for. The 7' Trap Caster is a true multi purpose rod and I've used it for spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and jigs without any issues. The 6'6" MH model is good for smaller jigs and plastics. The 6'10" H model I have hasn't seen much use as this year I had limited fishing time but its lightweight and has a good overall action for jigs up to 1/2oz. I don't think I would pay the retail price for the Micro versions as they can bend easy but overall I like all of them and they have taken a lot of abuse over the last 2-3 seasons.

Among the best. I have a dozen or so Cara's and Lowriders.., In general, they fish a bit more moderate than most and are really versatile,

My favorites are the finesse Jig rod, Headturner ,Amistad, and weightless worm.

Have to agree with rangerjockey.  Mediums all carry 1/4-1/2 oz. ratings.  Nice parabolic bend in all.  I've got a couple Originals (caught PB on a MH), a Cara and three Experts.  Especially like the Experts.  Would love to have the models rangerjockey mentioned and the Trap Caster fishnkamp mentioned.  Everyone that has owned one of those models seem to have nothing but praise for them.

I also had one of these for years..It not only is my Carolina rig rod but also my frog and swim bait setup. I use this more than anything else I own.

Also, from what I understand it is considered the industry's first technique specific rod..

I have used a few of the falcon lowriders and I think they are all great rods.
