From the moment I discovered these rods I knew I wanted one. This thing is built like a tank. I have always favored the shorter rods cause it allows me to get into tighter spaces. I also ride a Can Am Spyder and this little rod fits right in my trunk. The coils are amazing and make up for the length. I have no doubts it will last the rest of my life and I will probably pass it on. I intend on buying one of the larger models. Don't let the small size fool you. The science is in the coils. Like I said, it's built like a tank. I give it a 10/10 and highly recommend Emmrod!!!!
Great size and handling.
Really great with a Zebco Omega. So smooth to cast.
Took on a fly-in Hunt to Alaska this year. Worked perfect never had to worry about breaking the rod while packing or bouncing around in jet boat. Was a blast to catch pike and Grayling. Look forward to more action with my new Rod!!!!
Bought one a year ago for myself. Best compact fishing rod I’ve ever used. Got the six coil for small stream fishing. The latest one I bought for my girlfriend and I’ll say that it took some serious abuse with her “casting”. No regrets on these purchases.
Great compact rod. Simple to assemble in the field.
Bought a pink one for me and an orange one for my son. Quality is amazing but I definitely wouldn’t recommend the packer for ice fishing as the metal gets very cold in your hands. Can’t wait to throw some baits out with it in the summer!
I had been in search of a compact rod that I could easily pack in a bag and take off for a ride on my motorcycle. I had tried telescopic rods, but there was always some damage eventually. The solid construction of the Emmrod means I dont have to worry about damage to the rod by having it in my backpack. I focus mostly on panfish, catch and release, which the 8 coil rod does just fine. If I want to scale up, all I need to really to do is switch out line and tackle. Casting on an emmrod does take practice amd adaptation, but with practice it has pinppint accuracy and casts pretty far. I've been using a generic, cheap spincast reel, but I will definitely upgrade to a better reel; the rod is worht it and deserves it. It's also a great conversation starter; people can't help but want to look at it. I would ask that the rod handles incorporate a loop so as to be able to use a handle strap. In my view, a handle strap or some way of securing the rod would improve it.
This rod is simply the best behind the kayak king. I use it for slow rolling Texas rigs and crankbaits.
