This rig is just a blast to use. I love topwater lures and nothing is quite like having a big fish blow up on one. What you have here is a Packer handle (the metal Emmrod) . It's wrapped with tennis racket grip tape and has a rubber butt cap used for a more comfortable feel. Combined with an ABU 5000 casting reel, one of the old red ones, and 16lb Momoi High Catch mono. I use an under hand or sidearm motion and can throw the plug a mile on this rig. It's something an experienced bait cast user will really appreciate. But it's not hard to learn and once mastered is so much fun.
