The Shakespeare Sigma Supra Spinning Rods come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

OPPORTUNIST sessions, organised around work and busy schedules, can be some of the best, but you’ve got to have kit ready to go, to maximise your time.

These five spinning rods in the Sigma Supra range, from a 7 ft (2-15 g) to a 11 ft (20-40 g) model, are ideal for quick-fire sessions. They come in four pieces, so will stow away nice and small, even fitting in the boot of a car. Shakespeare have a reputation for producing value for money products, and these look just that.

The slim, strong blanks are lined with Titanium Oxide insert guides, a decent reel seat, and a quality cork handle. All of the rods come with a progressive action, with the different sizes in the range suiting different waters and the size of lure you want to punch out.

Price: £49.99-£69.99.
