The Shakespeare Agility 2 Uptide is 9' 6'' long and rated to cast 5 to 10oz. The Agility has a nice tip which cushions the movement of the boat but still shows bites really well. The mid and lower sections have ample power to deal with decent fish such as cod and rays and the rod has a lovely 'feel' which belies its very reasonable price. The rod is well finished with 3 legged Zirconium Oxide guides, an engraved aluminium reel seat and a hardwearing shapped EVA handle. The uptide is designed for casting away from the boat and it is ideal when targetting cod, rays hounds, tope etc.
