    screwdown reel seat.It is recommended for use with a

    stick or Avon oat down a river when in pursuit of roach, dace and chub.

    Dave Woodmansey says: These rods look, feel and perform well above their

    price tags.

    The big hitter in the Agility Match range is this Power version, rated for 8lb reel lines, and particularly suited for those red-letter days when double- gure carp are the main target. At 13ft, it will cast everything from

    pellet wagglers to 20g-plus splasher

    waggler type oats and will prove more than a match for any big stillwater tench and barbel. It would also be suited to trotting all

    but the biggest rivers for barbel, as well as being an excellent stick oat rod for winter chub.

    FEEDER RODS FIT THE BILLShakespeares new Agility rods have feeder shing covered too, with the range offering everything from a delicate 9ft wand to a 14ft power feeder


    Equally at home dishing it out to silver sh on a river as it would be battering the carp at your local commercial shery, this superb all-round feeder rod offers a multitude of applications.Although it has a reel line rating of

    6lb, it offers enough softness in the tip to make dropping down to lines as light as 3lb and hooklengths as ne as 0.10mm or 0.12mm entirely possible.Its no lightweight in the casting

    stakes, however, and the slim blank is capable of handling feeders up to

    around 40g and launching them 40-50 yards with ease.Like the rest of the range, its nished

    to a high standard with zirconium oxide guides, a cork/EVA contoured handle, rubber butt cap and quality reel seat. Finally, it comes with three colour-coded quivertips 2oz glass, and 2oz and 3oz carbon.

    AGILITY WANDRRP 59.99-64.99

    Magical little rod, perfect for when the going gets tough and light tackle and ne lines are the order of the day to tempt bites from shy-biting species such as skimmers and F1s, especially in winter. Available in 9ft and 10ft versions,

    both of which have four super- ne tips which blend seamlessly with the blank. Two-piece construction, of equal length, meaning they are easy to transport made up to your peg.

    Improve Your Coarse Fishings

    Dave Woodmansey says: A great range of rods covering all aspects of commercial feeder and straight lead shing for novice and pro alike

    The blank may be slim but the Agility Feeder

    casts big weights long distances


    Stepped up three-piece version of the Agility Feeder which is available in 12ft, 13ft and 14ft. Boasts a powerful, yet progressive action, which is fairly forgiving to begin with, but has ample reserves deep down to land any commercial carp that swims! The rod will happily cope with

    10lb reel lines and cast maximum loads up to a hefty 4oz, so it could easily turn its hand to shing big rivers with large groundbait feeders in the autumn and winter.Slightly larger diameter

    zirconium oxide guides enable shockleaders and heavier mainlines to be used when bigger than average sh are being targeted. Comes with three interchangeable push-in tips.
