I had two Falcon Low Riders that were broke in my garage, one I broke improperly swinging the fish in the boat, the other I stepped on. I talked to the folks at Tackle Depot here in Weatherford who are a Falcon dealer and they told me to bring them in. They sent them off to Falcon and they replaced one Lizzard Dragger with the new 20 series for $60 plus $5 shipping and the other one was a weightless worm rod that they replaced for free again with the new 20 series. These are $170 and $160 rods. These were upgrades,I was really impressed as I had a bad dealing with Falcon about 8 years ago on a warranty issue. They have now changed their policy, so it might be in your interest to send it back to them and explain how you broke them.
