All new for 2019, we are proud to introduce the latest generation of Experts. Featuring actions tuned through close consultation with the Falcon pro-staff like Bassmaster Elite Series anglers Jason Christie and Mike McClelland, our all-new, top-of-the-line, Expert Series rods are built with one purpose in mind. Winning. It all starts with the blank. To enhance power-to-weight ratio, we use CrossMatch, our all-new, state-of-the-art composite of Japanese carbon whose multi-layer, cross-directional fibers boost strength while requiring less material and resin. The result is a rod thats significantly lighter, incredibly muscular, and considerably more sensitive. Other benefits include superior resistance to torsional deflection. In other words, the blank resists rollover or twist which can help increase cast accuracy. Like all Falcon rods, Expert Series components are 100% Fuji from the reel seats to the tangle-free K Frame guides.
