    Love it.

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Sep 2017

    Love the rod. Only thing is that the Zebco that came with it is for a casting type rod. I ordered a spinning combo hoping the Zebco would work with it. I used a spinning reel with it but it won't cast far. I found that a triggerspin or underspin reel works great though. Overall I love the pole.

    Best pole I own

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Jul 2017

    We fish off the boat, at the ocean along the shore, and off our canoe and these Emmrod poles are the best. They are never in the way and super easy to use in tight places. When on the boat after you catch the fish and you need to get the hook out of your fish just put the Emmrod down. Super easy, big poles are always in the way but not these. I can feel everything in the water with these pole they are just the best.

    Took this rod on a 3 day river trip. Packed nicely and quickly. The rod is strong and holds up nicely for landing big fish!

    Not a good fit for my intended use

    Posted by Richard on 14th Jun 2017

    I am intrigued by the emmrod concept for kayak fishing in the tight confines of our local rivers. However, I typically use ultralight lines and lures. Unfortunately, even the 8 coil rod is too stiff to cast such small lures. The quality is excellent. If emmrod made a rod for 1/8 to 1/4 oz lures, I would purchase in a heartbeat.

    High Quality product

    The quality is excellent, the performance is good the spinning reel is smooth and the pole is good. The small size allows me to keep it in my PWC.

    i just got this rod for my 14th birthday for use as a backpacking rod. i plan it will replace my 6 foot. and bring wonder and envy to my troop mates. and thanks to it, i plan on starting to ice fish also. i am recommending it to all my friends to at least look at.

    quality product, limited application

    Posted by Matt Mead on 13th Sep 2014

    Emmrod makes a quality product that's for sure. The build and compact size are convenient and sturdy. The only draw back I've found is casting distance. I read a lot of reviews stating the casting was limited but I've found it to be more limited than most reviewers stated. I can easlily cast twice the distance with even an ultra light set up I have. When fishing rivers this is not much of a limitation but when salt water fishing the rod just doesn't stand up next to my usual set ups. It makes a great behind the seat of the truck rod but I have to say I was a little disappointed with the casting. Maybe if I had bought a lesser weight rod (I bought the 6 coil for up to 15 pound fish) or try a different combo it might cast further but with powerpro 20 pound and a Shimano Spheros 3000 it doesn't really deliver a long enough cast. I like the product but really wish it would cast a bit further.

    This is a really nice addition to my fishing gear. It works just as well as a normal pole in a kayak, with the bonus of being less prone to get snagged on overhanging branches. It doesn't cast quite as far as a full-size rod; but its compact design is worth the slight reduction in range.

    THE Rod for Kayak Fishing

    Posted by D & J on 16th May 2014

    Perfect size. Great responsiveness. Should be standard equipment for kayak fishing.
