    Not sure if anyone is interested, but I've managed to locate someone selling Emmrods in the UK - he's getting rid of his remaining stock so the price is very good:

    http://www.emmrod.com/
    There are no bad reviews of these on the internet that I can find.

    There are:
    10 x packers at £31 (4 coil)
    And 1 mountaineer at £41.25

    postage at £8-50 each

    They ship with reels.

    If you're interested pm me and I'll pass you the dealers details. I've had one and am very pleased with it.

    Not really a group buy as there's no restriction on number of purchases but there is limited stock, so first come, first served.

    Cheers

    Mike

    They look cool.......what are they? :)

    I know they are fishing rods, but why so funky?

    Very short and nigh on indestructible, good for stashing in a backpack and also working in tight areas. Uses sprung steel instead of a long rod.

    Can't quite tell what's 70 bucks superior about the Mountaineer to the Packer... Don't spose you can enlighten me Mike?

    The packer is a spin cast rod. The mountaineer will fish more styles I think.

    Mine arrived this morning, very prompt service from the gentleman. Thankyou mountainm also.

    I have no idea what to do with it mind you but it's small enough to take out easily and have a go.

    You'll need some lures and some traces, a net and some forceps.

    Mine arrived in super quick time, nice and light. Just need to sneak in a little session with it now.
    Thanks for flagging it up.

    Thanks to Mike for sourcing :You_Rock_
