Sage R8 Core Series Fly Rods

Sage Fly Rods
$1,050.00

R8 CORE is focused on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary material technology through Sage's forward-thinking lens of what they’re seeing out on the water, where one rod needs to show even greater range. At its core, R8 CORE traces a direct lineage to Sage’s multi-application vision, one shaped by the fishing evolutions happening all around us - from habitats we stalk and waters we frequent, to the flies we fish and the diversity of species we now target.

For most of us, an idyllic day on the water is not when we’re thinking more, but when we’re thinking less. Finding that state of fishing in the moment, where instinct and experience bring us to an almost zen-like awareness of each subtle motion and movement—that’s what R8 CORE is all about. It’s not a race or a competition, but a state we all aim to reach out on the water. With R8 CORE we enhance that two-way connection from hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow and control. This Amplified Two-Way Feedback Loop, due to our new axial fiber formulation, allows you to feel when the power needs to be applied throughout the cast, presentation, and when applying the appropriate pressure to fish - ultimately giving you the angler Complete Control.
