This rod by far is the strongest I’ve had… and it cast out pretty decent.
The packrod spin product is a really good and well built piece of fishing gear. I have so far caught a variety of fish with it but most have only weighed in at less than a pound. I like how easy it is to break the rod down and reset it to fish. I travel for a living so this rod makes it easy to bring a rod and some tackle nearly anywhere with me. The only reason for not rating 5 stars is I feel like it’s not as easy as I thought it would be to cast certain bait, usually smaller spin bait. I think I’ll end up buying the top water end that is the longest one emmrod offers. That should still give me an extremely small setup that still casts comparable to what I’m used to. I’ll also add that I have the 6 coil rod and if you’re looking at smaller bass/panfish the lighter action would do just fine. The 6 coil option has handled the bass I’ve caught with not problems at all and would handle a much larger fish than I’d expected. Emmrod will keep my business and I’ll also refer any of my friends looking for a similar setup.
This small rod works better than I had hoped. Casting a 7gm tasmain devil lure, the distance was close to that of a 6 foot rod. The advantage being able to cast in and from heavy tropical. I am now looking to use it on the Barramundi filled lakes around home in North Queensland. The six coil feels very like a normal rod to the point that you forget how short it is. I teamed the rod with a Shimano Sienna 1000 reel and 10 mono.
I purchased 2 Packer Rods for hiking and bike-camping. The overall quality is very good. I purchased 10 more: 3 Kayak King and 7 PackRod Spin, and again I'm appreciating the over quality, e.g. handle, action, durability and compact size - while not overly compact.
Had this fishing rod for about three weeks. Paired it with a Pflueger light reel. Works great. Makes it possible to fish tight areas and little streams that longer rods would make it difficult to fish. Handles nice, but takes practice to cast accurately. Makes many of my quick hiking trips more fun and varied.
i own 6 other emmrods.The quality and versatility of emmrod products is un matched in the industry!!! they are conversation pieces.I will put my emmrods up against the best and most expensive rods and handles in the industry today!!! I am 84 yrs old and i have been fishing since i was 8 yrs old!!!
Only used it a few times with the weather being so cold in my area but did manage to catch two Walleye my Pack Rod so far and I had zero problems pulling them in. Really a nice compact take anywhere fishing setup. I paired mine up the Daiwa 2000 Series Regal LT an awesome combo. Good for trout, bass walleye or anything else your trying to catch. Took a few casts to get use to it but otherwise I have no issues casting. Liked it so much I have since bought a few Kayak Kings and will be only using Emmrods from now on for all my fishing.
It's a high quality rod but just trying to get used to casting it,it's been 30 yrs since I last fished but I'll get back into the swing of it.I'm an Iraq '03 vet with the typical mental problems from being over there and hoping getting back into fishing will help out.
This is an awesome item...the perfect "packer" and it works perfectly...I own three of the rods and both the spinning and bait cast handles...am totally pleased with each of them!!!
