This is one sweet setup! The first fishing rod ever with a TPE handle. The Packrod was chosen by Emmrod as the initial offering with the new material. It's tough, easy to grip, very comfortable and lots tougher than cork. Both versions of the Packrod, spinning and casting, will have this new material. As with the first Ford cars it comes in any color you want so long as it's black. The one pictured is a Packrod rigged with a seven coil Universal tip and a Shimano Citica bait casting reel. Loaded with 12lb mono line right now it easily casts unweighted flukes and is killer with topwater plugs. I can't wait to get hooked up to some big inshore fish on these rods. For kayak fishing these new rods offer a powerful but compact way to land the big ones. Oh yes and the cool part is there is no increase in the price!
