If you have a Dick's Sporting Goods near by, you might be able to find the Lowrider on the shelf. Seemed like a nice rod, especially for under retail on some sites.

Well, I've heard negative things about them. I know that Falcon moved production to China, so they aren't made in the USA anymore.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

I was looking at a lowrider 7’6” cranking rod in a local shop and barely flexed the tip and it broke off. That’s the third falcon I’ve had break on me... Pretty much turned me off from Falcon. Felt nice up until the tip broke :lol:

I have several older lowriders and would buy another us made one in a heartbeat, the new ones I'd pass on. A lot of academy sports have several of the new lowriders in clearance bins.
