So I was in the Falcon shop in Broken Arrow today. I always thought the rods were made right there in the back of the store; man was I wrong. I was notified that none of the employees at falcon are allowed to know where the blanks are made. My mind almost exploded. The employees have to sign a non-disc agreement. Why not just say where they are made? Why would they not take pride in Being made in the USA?

Something fishy is going on. I know this has been well documented over the past decade, but I intend to find out.

Whether or not they roll their own blanks or source them from somewhere else, I intend to go Sherlock Holmes on them and Uncover this mystery.

Most all blanks are made overseas due to cost. Then ppl assemble them in the USA after all the parts are imported... And call them "made in USA".

Yes I have already read that thread. The XD ones are made in china. Im talking about the T7 Caras, the higher end stuff. This is America. If you state you make something here then it dang well better be made here.

I just find it strange that even the employees are not even allowed to know a rough estimation as to where they are made.

Not one single item walmart sells is labeled "Made By Walmart". Their great value brand is sourced from another company. You just compared an apple to an asparagus. That is not meant to be spiteful or rude (Its impossible to tell someones tone over a message.)

Regardless of where they are made it is really fishy that they aren't transparent with where the blanks are sourced from.

Don't build a brand based on "Built in the USA" and fight to keep your suppliers on the DL for the life of your company....

Seems like a matter of principle to me...

Good luck with your quest for truth, I am interested to know what you dig up.

If it's made overseas and has stuff put on it here in USA, By law they have to put "Assmeblied in USA"

I used to work for UST golf shafts, most were made in Bangledash and then maybe painted here and we had to put "Assemblied in USA"
