I think you mean Falicon rods. They are big in motorcycle racing. I wasn't aware they made car rods. Their quality is top notch. My brother has a set in his Suzuki GSXR bike.

What he is talking about is Falcon. They are cheap. May be decent though. I know the guy who operates the ebay sales of them. Company is Falcon Global. He told me they come form the exact same place as eagle.

Falcon sounds like a cheap take off wannabee Eagle - just like Hawk, or Cat for Scat. Probably RPM or Star Galaxy parts. Amazing that people want to make an already cheap Chinese part even cheaper. Caveat Emptor. Its only your connecting rods - what could they hurt?
