Falcon Bucoo or Abu Garcia Vendetta

Recommended Posts

I have a 7' MH Bucoo right now with a Quauntum Tour Edition on it. I really love the rod but I just got a Abu Revo Skeet Reese and was looking for a rod to put it on. I picked up a Vendetta and really liked it (7' MH) and noticed it was a little cheaper than the Bucoo. But I would like to know how they perform against the Bucoos. Also witch Bucoo would be better for flipping/pitching? I didn't see a flipping rod in the lineup. Same with the Vendetta. Just looking for input on both rods.

From what I've been reading a lot of pros are flipping a pitching with rods that are 7 ft. I think that any rod that is a 7' H powered is considered a flipping rod? I can't talk for the Vendetta but I love my Bucco rod

the 7' h bucoo is good at pitching and flipping light to med cover. I own the 7'mh and h and even though they call them a 5 & 6 powered rods they are more like 4 & 5 powered. when you get up to the upper ends of the lure ratings they load pretty hard. I was flipping a 3/4oz tungsten DB weight with a 4/0 flipping hook and a sweet beaver on my 7'H. while I was able to do so well and effectively it just seemed to be a little much enough so that I'm too looking for a new heavy cover punching rod. I love mine. the sensitivity and balance are outstanding especially for a 110 bucks. I have just had to change what I planned on using them for a little. The MH is now my Trap and crank rod and the H is my Trig and Jig rod. I will buy a Dobyns 735C for pitching and flipping and the 736c for frogs and punching.  I wish falcon would extend the Bucoo line they are awesome rods that can not be matched at there price point. Anyone here who owns one will tell you the same. Those that don't bash them sometimes but they don't own them so how do they know. Those two rods have been some of my best and most prized purchases and so I don';t want to risk busting them buy testing their lure rating
