Get one or more before there gone. 7 ball bearings makes this reel smooth as silk, Instant anti reverse, smooth drag takes worry out of using 2 or 4lb test line. Easily handles put and take trout. I even caught one of the brood stock trout they occassionally stock. Its weight was scaled at 5lbs 2oz. Fish USA service and shipping during the holidays left nothing to be improved. I recommend both this reel and this company highly.

I have 2 of these reels the 40's. I use them to fish for Bass, crappies, and catfish. If you keep them clean and maintained, (I use Hot Sauce oil and greese) They work very smoothly and I have no problem landing 3 to 4 lb fish. I have reels that cost much more and yes they are better built, but for the money you cannot go wrong with the Agility. Try one you might be suprised!

About Me:

Shakespeare continues to find ways to keep the quality high and the cost low, that is why I look first to see if Shakespeare makes what I want before I look at any other brand. I have never had a problem with any of their products. I run 4-6 rods at a time on my down riggers and by keeping them all the same brand I can tell if one has picked up some weeds, a small fish so that I don't waste time dragging fouled lures through the water. We catch 5-8 pound German Browns and Rainbows with very light lines, reels & rods.

All i can say is wow. So far i have had this reel for about a month and it has been doing great. The extra bearings let you get as much power into your casts as you can without losing the bait. So far it has provided to be durable and reliable but then again i havent really had it in rough conditions. Another great thing is it hasnt had any problems with line tangling and the drag is very smooth. Oh yea did i say that it looks good too against my black and gold rod. Overall this is a must buy to add to your fishing collection.
