New Agility FD and RD reels set to take centre stage
SHAKESPEARE can be justly proud of these exceptional Agility reels.
The latest models come in 3500 and 4500 sizes in front drag (FD) or rear drag (RD) versions, and both have classic matt black and red-trimmed bodies with matching colour-coded aluminium spools.
But it isn’t just about their looks. Performance is equally impressive, with 5.2:1 gear ratios and smooth running on six stainless bearings. They can be used for all float, feeder and light lure tactics.
A wealth of key specifications includes large-diameter bail-arms, anodised aluminium spools (plus one deep and two shallow spares), instant anti-reverse switch, machine-cut single handles with a comfy EVA thumb and forefinger knob, and a mono-friendly spring-loaded line clip.
