    This rod fits nicely in my saddlebags and is togh enough for MC travel. I ordered the basic Zebco 33 reel and was given a free upgrade to a Qualia MVL 10. My only concern is the depth of the reel foot. It's depth makes it difficult for the threaded retaining ring to mount it into the reel seat. Still a quality outfit, I have not lost a fish yet!

    Awesome Product

    Posted by Bret on 27th Jul 2015

    My Emmrod Packer is perfect for the fishing I do which is bank and kayak or Jon boat. I was skeptical at first, after hours of reading reviews and watching YouTube and even called Emmrod,which they were more than happy to answer all my questions I decided to order one. When I got my Packer, I was happy with how sturdy and well built it is. It didn't take long to get the hang of it and I'm already casting as far as my six-foot and 6-6 rod. It a awesome product and I've ordered another Packer and a Packrod spinning rod. I'm so satisfied with these Emmrods that I'm replacing all my long rods with Emmrods,in fact I don't even take the long rods any more.The only regret I have is I didn't do it sooner.

    I ordered late on a Thursday night and received my emmrod on Monday morning. It was a few days before I got to try it. I practiced casting one evening before taking it out in my kayak.I didn't know if I would make it to the water because everyone kept stopping me to ask "what is it?" I got a late start on a hot sunny day and was afraid the fish had stopped biting. Determined to fish with my new rod, I set out with a rooster tail and little else. Working my way between private docks and making short casts of about 12 to 30 feet, I worked the tight spots and somewhat shallow water, mostly retrieving parallell to the shore. Immediately, I got a couple of strikes. A few minutes later I had a large and feisty bream on the hook. A few minutes after that I had a largemouth bass beside the kayak, but he threw the hook as I reached down for him. A few minutes later I landed another largemouth bass about 14" long. The fish stopped biting suddenly, but I persevered. When I returned to the marina, I spent some time explaining the emmrod to all the curious people and showing them pictures of the fish hanging from the emmrod. I decided to go out to the end of the pier and make a couple of casts. On about the third cast I caught a hybrid bass. After tossing him back, I caught another one on the next cast. It was past dark by then and I had to go home sooner or later, so I accepted that it was a decent day of fishing, especially when one considers I haven't fished at all for many years. My new fishing license had barely cooled off from being laminated and I was catching fish with the emmrod. I'm a satisfied customer and now I need to decide on my next purchase,...the packrod spinning or the spinning kayak king.
