      Comments about Shakespeare Agility IM-8 Graphite Freshwater Steelhead Rod, 106":

      I have been using this rod for 3 years. I use it for winter steelhead and brown trout fishing in Western New York. I have a good spinning reel on it with 6lb test line. This rod has landed this year alone 41 steelhead and brown trout with an average weight of 5 lbs and a many 10 lbs plus fish. The bend in this rod is what makes it possible to use a lighter line for spooky fish. It is a great rod for drifting a jig and bobber or drifting egg sacks. The only issue I have had is the same as the other review. The reel seat screw loosens every so often. I solved the problem by wrapping the threads with Teflon tape.

          Well the rod is extremely sensitive ,has great hook setting ability good length this rod matched with the Abu Garcia cardinal reel is awesome ,some issues with the rod wich ain't that bad are the twist reel lock comes loose sometimes ,and the top eyelet insert came out on mine because I was messing with it but easily repaired ,overall great rod for the price. And won't be sceptical about buying another
