    Handy, unique, effective, and grabs attention.

    Posted by Tim on 7th Aug 2014

    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.

    Great little pole

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Aug 2014

    Got the packer cast - have only used it once for Croaker. Great for casting esp. when around others - or in tight spaces. Packs easily and carry it in the truck tool box for those just in case moments.

    I must say that since i purchased my packer cast pole i cant seem to stop casting with it whether its in the garden in the back of my house (with a hooless troll) or at the river , i have now wrecked all my wife's flowers in the garden , but she forgives me because she can see how much fun this toy of mine brings me :-)

    Packs A Punch!

    Posted by Dan from Texas on 3rd Jul 2014

    Used the emmrod with a two tip and an 808 zebco reel and it was pure power! Picked up even the smallest of bites and was quick to reel in the fish. I'm looking for that monster fish to push my setup it to its limits!

    I like it!!

    Posted by Unknown on 15th May 2014

    I have lent this pole to several people so I could get their feedback. Of the 4 people that used it, 2 like it and 2 do not like it. 1 person said it wasn't comfortable in their hand, felt it wasn't easy to use. I had to use it quite a bit but I have learned some and I do like it to get in under trees etc.

    Awesome small creek and river pole

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Apr 2014

    I was sceptical when I recieved it but it's worth every penny. Takes some practice to learn how to cast it but everything takes practice! Recommend to any one who wants a pole that will last a lifetime, easly packable, and just as effective as any 6'6 spinner rod in smaller tributaries. Thanks for a great product and look forward to buying a spinner model!

    Seems like a solid product

    Posted by Gary Kimball on 29th Mar 2014

    I got three Emmrods in the mail yesterday. Generally, my first impression is about 4 stars. I like the idea, it is very intriguing to me, but I've yet to test them on the water. The Packer seems like a good rig. I would knock, slightly, the ring that holds the reel in place. I thought that was a tad less than quality, but overall, I'd say the product is good quality. I can't wait to get out and try them. Kudos to the company for thinking outside the box. I love innovation.
