You need every possible advantage over the fish, not to mention the competition). LowRider XG rods give you that advantage. You'll feel those tiny taps, thanks to the innovative XG graphite blank and the Lite Bite™ reel seat. You'll cast farther than ever and with better accuracy, thanks for to a perfect weight balance and Fuji® aluminum oxide guides.

I purchased the Lowrider 6'-6" Medium to use for a various techniques and it performs to my high expectations. Falcon Lowriders have never failed me on the water, they have models to fit your need. Top section has the touch & feel and the bottom has the backbone to get the fish out of cover & in to the boat or on the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEOKoutdoorsman Excellent feel and quality
I have four Falcon LR rods and the feel with each of them is excellent. Every bottom feature is felt while fishing plastics and the rods are very strong. Never had one fail. The finish quality is also excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brentmeister Solid rod with great backbone - very sensitive!
The 6'6" MH coupled with a good spinning reel, makes an exvellent finess bass rod. It has a great backbone for playing large fish, and it has a very fast tip with great sensitivity.
When light line and a very subtle presentation is in order, I spool up with some 6 LB copolymer line. This works great for drop-shotting, shakey head and small weightless/wacky worms.
When fishing areas with structhre/cover - you can step up the line weight to 10 LB copolymer or flourocarbon and the rod has plenty of backbone to hadle it.
It is a very versatile rod, well built and durable. I've fished mine hard for three years (year round fishing) and it hasn't missed a beat. The cork on the handle is very durable.
While it doesn't have the snazzy split handle or other trendy cosmetics, it is a solid performer and sports a very classic look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greghunter121 Best Rod EVER
I have owned this rod for 6 years...it is still my favorite over the carbon fiber and the lights and heavies...it is sooo sensitive and can realy have some backbone when setting the hook. I have even reeled in a 15 lb blue cat with it.

Honestly, dtyukody, this would be a fantastic choice for drop shotting and soft plastic finesse tactics, but I can't recomend this rod for cranking. I would opt for a "softer" IM-6 casting rod, like the Crankin' Stick, for crankbait fishing (link below). http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/s...
