Purchased my agility a few weeks ago for pretty much a surf rod I can keep in the car. First impressions are the eye on the tip is quite small for sea fishing, had to really squeeze the clip through the eye and it just fit. Fixed spool fishing for me and can I say, although it's quite a soft tip with a bit of a flick as opposed to a heave it whips the lead out a fair distance. I would say however it is a beach rod as it does Not cope too well with any sort of snag. I do however think it would be fantastic for a bit of flattie bashing. Very responsive tip, and you can see bites perfectly. Even small bites. For the cost (£65) it's a bargain. 3 pieces mean it fits in the boot for those ad hoc days fishing. Just don't expect it to pull your lead out the kelp. No real backbone for snags. Light and fun though... Worth it for the cash. 5oz probably prime weight. 6 plus bait seems too much of an effort.
