Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent rod Excellent rod, very light, fits my hand very well. April 1, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Facon Cara T7 !! I bought one of these after doing tons of research. I always make sure to do my homework before I invest in any fishing purchase over $100. Lets just say I now own 5 of these rods. I have fished with G-Loomis rods that cost twice as much as the Falcon Cara T7 series, and I would not hesitate to pick the Falcon every time. I have one that is the "Angle of the Year" edition and it is by far my favorite of the 5. They all are very light, have great balance, and you can feel even the most subtle bites !!! March 5, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 7-173S I fish with Falcon rods almost exclusively. I have some older stuff but everything I buy lately is Falcon. I just upgraded from an older Cara to the new 7'3" "Amistad" rod and I absolutely love it. The value when compared to the higher end Loomis or St Croix is great. The handle is really comfortable and the action is great for a variety of baits. Not nearly as stiff as Falcon makes it sound. I can fish a 1/4 oz shakey head or a 5" swimbait on this rod!! Will be buying more as soon as I can liquidate some of my older stuff. September 13, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough, Sensitive & Well Made in USA Have three of these and they are among my favorites. Strongly recommended. Tough, sensitive, and extremely well made. Solid value for the cost - IMO comparable or better than the GLoomis GL2 & IMX and St. Croix Avids & Legend Series. Currently own the following: 1. 7' Heavy Action with a extra-fast tip. 2. 7' Medium Heavy Action with fast tip 3. 6'7" Senko Special Medium Heavy Action The first two rods are absolutely fantastic. The third I like, but I honestly still don't know what to fully make of it. Haven't used it in the right conditions enough yet. Overall the rods are slightly heavier than some, but have incredible backbone. I like using the 7' Heavy for frogs, large worms, and big jigs. Haven't used it for Carolina rigs, but I'm sure it would excel in that application as well. I use the 7' Medium Heavy for worms and larger spinner baits. It does a fine job especially with hard thumping spinner baits. Both rods are more than ample to turn the head and pull a bass out of junk. Of course, the Heavy action does better than the medium heavy action. The Senko Special is more of finesse rod and works best when casting weightless worms into vegetation that is not so dense or tangled. I have also used it to work slash baits, small buzzbaits, and Texas rigged worms. The slightly shorter length (6'7") allows me to place the baits where I want them. If a rod can be accurate, this one is. Comparatively, it simply does not have the raw power of the other two, which may be clouding my judgment of the rod. The Senko Special is quite light and may be the most sensitive of the three - but these rods are all quite sensitive. Also, I wasn't real sure about the Fuji ACS reel seats when I first looked at the rods. Frankly, this particular feature delayed my purchase of the rods for some time. This opinion has changed. The contour of the reel seat matches my style of grip perfectly, is less fatiguing, and allows me to feel more vibration than other, more traditional style reel seats. Overall, these are fine and well constructed rods. If I were a guide, I would likely choose these for use by my clientele. They are just that darn tough and well made. August 7, 2009

A: 
Great for pitching plastics and jigs. Works as a Carolina Rig rod and more. Great all-around rod that is light and has great sensitivity. Not too stiff. Can pitch 1/4oz weights easily. Will pull fish out of standing timber once you get them on.

Putting 2 great products together would be a great idea. Ive owned energy's and both of those rods. I believe they would work great together. I have a quantum smoke on my T7 and I wish it was an energy.

It is a great match, I have the 6 1/2 foot medium heavy cara matched with a 7.1.1 gear ratio quantum energy reel. It is as if they were made for each other.

The reaction rods are cranking rods. I believe they are a fiberglass graphite mix. The T7's are awesome application based rods. And I do mean awesome.

A: 
The reaction series rods have a slower action than the T7. These rods are designed for reaction type baits, i.e. crankbaits, spinnerbaits, etc. These rods have a slower action so that when a fish bites one of these faster moving baits it gives it time to inhale it instead of the angler setting the hook and pulling it away from it. I have a few of the reaction series and a few of the T7's and love both. They are technique specific and cover the specified technique perfect. My favorite is the Mike McCelland heavy cover rod. It's perfect. Allows you to pick up to see if a bite is a fish or just cover without pulling your bait out of the fish's mouth. These are by far my favorite rods to fish with.

I have never used the Reaction series, but I have seen them in stores. I own 5 of the Cara T7's and I cannot tell a difference between the two. If you are thinking about getting one you will not regret you decision. This is by far one of the best rods I have ever fished with !!!!
