The rod is AWSOME. Strong, well built, easy to use. I can fish anywhere with this rod. I fit my rod, tackle, real and lunch all in a napsack. So easy. I spoke with a rep named Tim. He is seriously fantastic. Helpful, professional, knowledgeable and super cool guy. I strongly recommend this product. Customer service is outstanding. All I need to really say is BRAVO!
The biggest complaint I see is people saying they cant cast crazy far with this. Can you? NO! Is this supposed to? NO! This has a use and it excels at what it is made to do. It is not an end all be all pole and is not meant to be so stop bashing it for what it isn't. I keep this in my pack for any day trip / hiking / camping fishing I may come cross. I can easily get this across any creek stream or moderate river I come across. The mechanics of the cast are a little different than a long pole but you get used to it and it works just fine with minimal adjustment. Great for kayaking as well. If you need something to bring on the kayak/canoe/boat that needs to not take up any space or throw in the backpack or one for the car this rod is highly efficient and has a really low footprint. I have a BG2500 on mine with 15lb test and it does everything i need it for. I am also not a deep ocean fisher or going out on boats way out past land so I can not speak on that. But for my uses this is PERFECT. I REPEAT: THIS POLE WILL NOT REPLACE ALL YOUR HEAVY DUTY LONG POLES USED TO CAST 150FT AND CATCH MARLIN. IT WAS NOT MEANT FOR THAT EITHER. My only gripe is that due to its packability it would be nice if there was some sort of bag to store it in. The spring part of the rod is just a tad bit, maybe 1mm, larger than the fat top part of the rod so it doesn't fit tightly and can slide off. I ended up getting a 14" handgun zip bag and it fits in there with the reel attached but there is some extra space in it. 10/10 would buy a case for it that fit better. Overall 4.5 stars for my needs. Great design and function.
Strong but lightweight. Easy to take apart and put together. Casts as well as any pole.
The PackRod is a wonderful rod - easy to cast and a joy to use from a kayak!
I have waited for this rod design for a long time... Finally found it with EmmRod... Best River Rod I have ever used. Performed Flawlessly!
This rod (pack rod spin) is absolutely perfect for what I wanted to do. I live in Florida on the east coast of the state, own a jet ski and wanted something that would fit in my ski compartment but be able to handle a good sized fish. This fits the bill, the build quality is fantastic and I am just overall impressed. Lance answered all questions I had very quickly through email prior to me purchasing and really helped me make the right choice. As for fishing with it, I catch just the same if not more fish than my friends with their "normal" poles. I can feel every little nibble on the bait you just have to learn not to pull quite as hard as a full sized rod when setting the hook. If someone sees it, they usually ask me about it, it gets a lot of attention. I'm extremely happy with the purchase and will buy more in the future, I have been using this rod for a few months now a couple times a week. My biggest fish so far on the rod is a black drum.
My pack rod is pretty much with me 24/7. Super easy to transport in backpack or in the truck. You never know when a little fishing opportunity will happen. It does all the work that my long rods did but is so much more handy. I can throw lures just as far with it as I did with the 7 & 8 ft. rods. If bottom fishing off a fishing pier, I would recommend carrying some sort of rod holder that you can affix to the pier rail unless you are going to hold the rod all the time. Being short, you can't just set it down against the rail like you would a long rod. Overall, I just love my Emmrods - all of them!
Just ordered an Emmrod Pack-Spin rod for a trip into Glacier National Park. The rod fit into my saddle bag and caught lots of fish without any problems!
Got two Packers and one Packrod-spinning rods, these work just as good as 6- foot rods and longer with the convenience of a short combo. The long rods are parked in the garage for this reason plus they are a blast to catch fish on and I've gave them all a workout from bass to crappie to channel-cat. Don't make the mistake I did and wait on buying them because u think they are a gimmick. Emmrods are the real deal.
