Upgraded 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.

Fine rod for the money
I liked the #10 Agility 2 XPS so much, I bought a second XPS in #8. Cracking rod for the money - oversized line guides, good fixed fighting butt, quick recovery. I'd rate it medium fast, with a bit less backbone than the #10. Looking forward to trying it on sea trout, mackerel, chain pickerel and grilse. Balances well with my Airflo Xceed 10/12 reel; with Angling Active's affordable shooting heads and lines, I can swap out #10-11 shooting heads for full size #8 lines in minutes, using the same reel for both rods....a full saltwater and predator fly-fishing kit for less than the cost of one Sage rod.

Brilliant product, brilliant service
Shakespeare Agility 2 XPS Fly Rod at less than £60 or £200 for an alternative that I liked, well obviously as I'm reviewing the cheaper option you know which I went for! Despite having much more expensive rods I have over recent years bought a number of 'budget' rods and while rings may not be quite as nice, or handles finished so prettily I haven't yet regretted a purchase. So this rod, its not cheap its great value. I bought it for pike and bass fishing as I wanted something lighter than #10 for small river and canal work and that would double for mullet fishing when the bass don't show up without being ridiculously heavy. Firstly the delivery was brilliant. I paid a little extra for 24 hour delivery and placed my order at round midday - the rod turned up at 10am the next morning. Can't fault that! Packaging was solid and the decent tube was well protected by bubble wrap. Now this was at work and I haven't got a river anywhere close but as my gear for the season lives in my car, when lunchtime came I went out to the adjacent field and put a reel holding an #8 Rio Intermediate striper bass line on the end. My first impressions are that the rod loads easily, shoots the line accurately and is not to heavy - just as well as I'm ignoring doctors orders to rest my elbow which has tendonitis thanks to a tough day on my 10 weight! Now that's only a very quick 'session' of a few minutes but as I've often found the usability of a rod does not fall significantly short of a rod at 4 times the price. So in summary, trust the order time and trust the rod. Both are great value. Review by Iain (Created 10/11/2017)
Perfect saltwater and pike rod
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)
