Sage R8 Core Fly Fishing Rods

Starting At:
$1,050.00

The Sage R8 Core fly fishing rods were created using innovative material science to feel like an extension of your arm. Advanced nano-sintered resin application, a more resilient axial fiber, combined with non-compressing circumferential hoop fibers result in better energy transfer; and an action that flexes into the handle without power loss for more intuitive casting. The R8 graphite matrix is denser, and provides a stronger backbone to the rod that improves sensitivity, mending, hook sets, and fish fighting. The R8 Core series is designed for versatility across applications. A fast action creates high line speed and tight loops for handling long leaders and long tapered lines when making technical dry fly presentations to rising trout. A balance between tip sensitivity and lifting power protects light tippets while granting excellent line lifting ability and improved hook setting ability. A powerful butt section allows anglers to easily cast heavy sinking lines and large flies, and also to fight large fish around structure. Overall, the R8 Core Series provides performance that naturally elevates your fly fishing experience at an instinctual level.

  • Advanced Nano-Sintered Resin Application and Resilient Axial Fiber
  • Non-Compressing Circumferential Hoop Fibers Improve Energy Transfer
  • Intuitive Casting Action
  • Improved Sensitivity, Mending, Hook Sets and Fish Fighting
  • Useful Across Broad Set of Fly Fishing Applications
