Emmrod Update

November 7th, 2009 · No Comments


Well, since I never heard back from Emmrod about the rod confusion (see Here’s something we hope you really like), I stopped by the Emmrod booth at a near by gift show. I was greated by Randy of Emmrod Northwest. Aahhh. I email the builder, not the dealer. Randy explained that set up pretty quickly, then explained that he no longer sells the “spinning” rod because the “casting” rod actually performs better.

That’s all I needed to hear!

I checked out some of the other Emmrod rods and handles. The Kayakking, Gulf Master, and more. Got to check out the new rods like a brand-new-never-seen-light-weight-longer-casting rod, a fly rod, and more.

I love the Emmrod design.

I picked up their 2-tip heavy weight rod that I’m going to give a shot at sturgeon. Randy told me that he’s never seen the 2-tip on the Mountaineer handle like I have, and setting up at the table, it felt great to me. The short butt section will be perfect for kayak fishing.

So far so good, and I can’t wait to put this to use on Thursday. Pics to come then!
