Like most other manufacturers, Falck made a range of tubing for different price points. They were a well-regarded second-tier supplier and their best tubing was comparable to the popular tube sets from the Big Names. I don't recall them having "cutting edge" sets like Ishiwata Alpha, Columbus KL or Reynolds 753, but their standard sets were quite acceptable.
