Bought an 8' agility rise last month and I love it so much I just took delivery of a little 6' too and like its bigger brother its a quite brilliant thing, well made, nice matt finish, quality reel seat and a quality tube too. If you bought one you wouldn't be disappointed.

Iit was the agility range whick take heavier lines , l am sure the rise version are shorter and for lighter lines small river and stream
I ordered 2 from droitwich angling even though they kept giving delivery dates they did nt materialise, I will get one after I ve actually held one
But am sure it is a different model

you're correct snap, there is the agility series for heavier lines and the 'agility rise' series starting at 6' 3wt

I've no experience of the fly rods, however the Agility sea rods are excellent value for the money replacing the old Salt and XT range.

I've heard lots of good comments about them, don't be put off by the price.

I'll echo what Springwell says, don't let the low price put you off. I paid £24 for my 8' Rise and I'd say the tube alone is worth half that! You honestly will feel like you've robbed them if you get one.

Ive got a shakespear agility 2 and I like it very much.
Must admit its my second as the tip on the first one snapped.
I use a Okuma fly reel as they are well reviewed and comes with spare spools.
I think you cant go far wrong with them for the cost.
