Handy, unique, effective, and grabs attention.
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.
