Yes the new HD rods are made in china but they will still have fuji components.Falcon is a great rod and they are doing this to get the cost down on a very good entry level rod.

Too tell the truth, I haven't ever heard of the HD series. Where do they fall in the Falcon line up?

They are the new entry level rods should be before the originals as far as price goes.

lots of good rods are made in China. The Shimano Crucial is a good example of a quality rod that is made in China.

I've always used Falcons because I could support something produced here in the USA.

I'm sure that Falcon will still be a good rod, as many others are that are produced in China, but what happens to the people in Oklahoma that made these rods. Did they go to China to retain their jobs?

I understand the economics of production costs vs profit - I sell a crankbait box that was made overseas. It's just disapointing when another MFG decides to outsource production to a foreign MFGer!

Is St. Croix still made here in the USA?

My Falcon Rods are Made in USA by a Chinese fella, just kidding!!

I hope they dont start production oversea's. Seems like lots of things everyone thinks is USA made ends up being USA engineered, Chinese made.

to my knowledge all falcon rods from the low rider on up are still made in broken arrow, its just the rods below the lowrider that are china made, and imo falcon is the only rod i will spend my money on outside of loomis! excellent rods, and great customer service is all i have ever experienced from falcon!
