Just got my order in from TW of the Flacon Rods Cara 7' casting  action-M  flex-F  full cork handle  CC-4-17 "cranker" lure weight: 1/4-1/2oz. All the specs listed on the rod match what was on TW except for the name "cranker". After fondling it for a few minutes i went to look at it on Falcon's page. I looked for the model # and its listed as "medium cranker" 7' m-MF  full cork  lure: 3/8-3/4. hmmm. Its says it known as the "mansfield"..ok i know this rod. The old Cara T7 rod with the same lure specs, but its flex is moderate. My rods flex is fast.. ~read. So i look at the Expert line. There it is "mansfield" 7'  m-F  EC-4-17.  ~rant. Am i just missing someting? Does TW have a bunch of miss labeled rods? I hope yall can help me out before i start calling TW and Falcon and sound like a nut job...

I have a old Falcon Cara 4-17 Medium Cranker when they still used the Shakairi blank .
I don't believe it's labeled fast however and I don't have it with me to check.
Every Mansfield I've ever seen is Labeled as such and every 4-17 crankbait rod I've ever seen is labeled Medium Cranker.  Of course with moving them off shore things could have changed.
 I would call Falcon.
