  1. Great for jigging off the pier. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2016

    The rod is well designed and matched with the correct reel. I rarely receive something that works "right out of the box" but this setup did. Compact, tough, and worth the price. Mine rides in a pocket of my backpack so I can jig off the piers when I walk.


  2. Can really catch some rather large fish! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Feb 2016

    Hi, Got my Emmrod packrod cast and fitted it with a nice durable and capable Shimano baitcaster reel. Promptly took it too a famous fishing pond in Bangkok and landed numerous Mekong type catfish all in the neighborhood of 40-50 lbs. Casts well and simply gets the job done. Hence I just bought another one. Excellent product and good service. Emmrod responded to a small issue I had and corrected it immediately. Very impressed. My conventional rods I suspect will now be collecting some dust. I practice casting into my swimming pool and can land within a car tire inner tube 7 out of 10 times from over 40 feet. Easy and accurate. Happy and now a strong believer!


  3. Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Feb 2016

    Well made and extremely functional. Can just leave it in the glove box/backpack and be ready to go whenever!


  4. Dynamite in a small package 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Oct 2015

    I was a little skeptical about the Emmrod pack rod cast & spinning rods when I first got them. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could cast both of them just as far as I could with my 7' & 8' rods without the inconvience of the longer rods. These rods are all I use now for all of my fishing needs. You can't go wrong with Emmrod!


  5. Quality-Thru-Out 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Oct 2015

    I already own 2-Packers and a Pack-Rod spinning rod and they are awesome rods. The Pack-Rod-Casting is no exception,tough and durable and quality made. These Emmrods are the only fishing rods I use and I have caught tons of fish with them to prove that they are and do what they say they will. I said in a earlier review that I wish I hadn't waited so long to try them and I still feel the same. Emmrods work and are quality thru out.


  6. great fishing rod for packing into the back country 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Apr 2015

    Great rod, lightweight and compact. Perfect for use in my packraft. It's portability makes it easy to take anywhere. No spot is un-fish able with this rod.


  7. a very good and impressive little thing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2014

    Hadn't got a chance to try it out. This emmrod looks very strong and it will handle big game. I guess it won't break easily. The stainless steel is tougher than a normal fishing rod.
    I will give it a try later and see how it works. I will come back though. I hope you guys can keep on innovating this tool. I am very interested and maybe I can introduce to more people in china.


  8. nice product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2014

    I first learned about this product from a fellow kayaker, and then from Jeff McGovern, who has a ton of YouTube videos on the product. It's actually unfortunate there is not more information out there about this rod.

    I bought the pack rod with TPE handle, along with a top water special rod, and 6 coil for a baitcaster. I use a Lew's BB1 pro reel.

    This is a very well made quality item, and the stainless steel rods are a thing of beauty. I think this is a product you could probably hand down to your children. I really don't think the price is out of line for the level of quality you get, and $20 for extra rods is more than reasonable.

    I use a side cast in a motion similar to throwing a baseball from the side. I've learned to keep the motion in my arm and not twist my back. You don't need to put your whole body into the cast. It would be nice if Emmrod did some instructional videos, as this rod cast differently than traditional rods.

    I have not done a direct side-by-side comparison to a 6 1/2 foot rod, but I started out with about 60 to 70 foot cast, and worked my way up to about 120 feet or thereabouts. The topwater special cast the furthest.

    It takes some practice, but you can get performance similar to a full length rod/reel combo.

    So far, the disappointing part about purchasing this product is zero feedback from the company. My last several e-mails have gone unanswered. Jeff McGovern, one of the Emmrod dealers, got back to me about three days after my initial e-mail. He was at least willing to talk over the phone. I wouldn't expect too much on the way of support for using the product.


  9. Perfect for minimalist lifestyle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2013

    Fits right in the door cup holder of my truck. Fun to cast and bring in fish. Caught a fish on my second cast! I can't say that was all the pole must have been a good spot. I do love this pole though and it is so tough I don't have to baby it like a lot of my other camping gear.
