I'm surprised Falcon doesn't come up more often.
Nothing makes my 90-y-o dad grin more than a birthday or Christmas Falcon rod.
I have a 6'6" spinning rod, "Open Hook Special" that has fished inshore 30 years, landed slot reds on 4200SS and 10-lb copolymer, and here, my daughter is landing big sheepshead on the flats using the light rig.
btw, I do have a 30-y-o Loomis GL2 8-1/2' MH spinning rod, that I've used inshore and caught kings at the jetties.
I loan it to friends with my 4400SS, and they all want one just like it.
