DetailsUpgraded and significantly improved from the original, the Shakespeare Agility 2 XPS Fly Rod excels in performance, built with durable high carbon blanks and with a fast action required when casting heavy lines and big flies.
The XPS in the title, stands for Extra Power Special and this name is given due to the rod’s capability of providing a powerful action that can cast out heavier lines and flies with ease. The XPS models are designed specifically for when you are fishing for hard fighting predators in both fresh and saltwater environments.
The blanks in the Agility 2 XPS utilise a higher grade of 36/40 ton carbon to make the rod diameters much slimmer and lighter in weight whilst also improving strength throughout the entire length of the blank. The stripper guides on both rods are constructed from Zirconium Oxide and the handle is made of AAA cork with an engraved aluminium reel seat.
The 9ft #8 model features a high quality reverse half wells handle.
The 9ft #10 features a full wells handle with an additional fighting handle grip.
The Shakespeare Agility 2 XPS Fly Rod features the same stunning cosmetics as the Agility 2 Fly Rod, finished with an attractive pearlized grey colour and silver detailing throughout.
The Agility 2 XPS Fly Rod is available in a 9ft #8 and a 9ft #10 model and each rod is supplied in a quality cordura tube.

- I ordered this rod for striped bass, Atlantic sturgeon, landlocked salmon, lake trout and muskie fishing. It's built for the job - a fairly fast action, lots of backbone, and oversize guides that let shooting heads shoot through. It's as light in the hand as a 10-weight can be, and balances perfectly with my AirFlo Xceed 10/12 saltwater reel. And when I really need to lift, the fighting grip is just where it should be. Thanks, Angling Active! Review by Eric (Created 05/05/2017)
