 This reel is a score. (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Smooth Drag System, Easy Casting, price, Well built quality
Comments: 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.

 Shakespeare does it again (from prior model)
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Reliable, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Shore Casting, River Fishing
Comments: 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!

Best Uses: River Fishing, Shore Casting, Boat Casting, Lake Fishing
Comments: Excellent value. I purchased a few reels for my friends who wanted one after fishing with my reel. The reel is inexpensive enough such that if a part wears out after hard, long use, I just throw the reel away and purchase another one.

Pros: Well built quality, Smooth Drag System, Easy Casting, Reliable, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: River Fishing, Lake Fishing, Shore Casting
Comments: I am using five of these reels on five different rods and rigs. The reel is as good if not better as others costing many times more. I also fish with Shimano, Abu Garcia, Okuma, and Daiwa spinning reels. Drawbacks: the reel occasionally tangles and twists the line but not any more than the other reels.

 Shakespeare Agility Spinning Reels (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Reliable, Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Durable, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: River Fishing, Shore Casting, Trolling
Comments: 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.

 Smooth as butter (from prior model)
Pros: Reliable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Lake Fishing, River Fishing
Comments: 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.

Does this reel have INSTANCE anti-reverse ?

Thank you for your question. The Shakespeare Agility reels do have instant anti-reverse, which is engaged in the traditional manner by a small lever under the spool.
