Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods:
SHAPING 8 REVOLUTIONS IN HOW WE FISH …
BEHIND THE Sage R8 CORE FLY ROD
We don’t just fish for the fishing, we fish to feel it in our soul.
Since our founding on the shores of Puget Sound, Sage has revolutionized graphite fly rod technology not once or twice, but seven times.
The next revolution is coming, 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.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods PROVIDE ENHANCED HAND-TO-ROD CONNECTION:
We’ve increased the purity of graphite in the rod for even more reactivity and sensitivity, shifting energy further down the blank and into the handle. This transfer of energy creates a more natural extension of your arm, ultimately resulting in less wasted effort and intuitive reactivity. Rather than dialing up parking lot distance, we’ve shifted the thinking back to the roots of rhythm and awareness—where you can experience the energy happening in each moment.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods PROVIDE AMPLIFIED SENSORY FEEDBACK LOOP:
Effortless energy transfer and more connected feel, the amplified two-way feedback loop of R8 Technology, 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.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods PROVIDE HEIGHTENED FISHING EXPERIENCE:
Whether it’s the mental chess of matching the hatch, the headspace of reading the water or the instinct putting a fly in exactly the right spot—our best days emerge when our mind is right. It always seems that when we’re not thinking about it is precisely when our fishing mind takes over—where every single moment feels almost automatic or instinctual. With immediate feedback from tip to hand, R8 is designed to facilitate that higher state of mental flow and focus when small decisions, thoughts, and actions line up effortlessly.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods – PURE GRAPHITE:
The advanced, leading-edge material behind R8 enables us to shape a rod with a stiffer, stronger backbone but a more sensitive tip and more connected feel. The secret is twofold. First, a proprietary aerospace composite with a greater hoop strength enables us to dimensionally grow taper diameter more quickly from the tip—while a nano-sintered resin application increases axial resilience and allows us to pack more fiber into the blank, resulting in that true two-way connection from hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow and control.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods FOR DRY FLY:
A fast action provides the capability to stay tight to the line and in control of the presentation, while the high line speed drives a tight loop that assists in laser accuracy in technical dry fly situations. With ability to handle dry fly lines with long heads, increasing loop control when carrying long lengths and making precise casts to rising fish, all while making it easier to turn over long leaders for technical feeders at range.
The Sage R8 Core Single Hand Fly Rods – MENDING:
With feel that extends to the smallest dry flies, R8 provides the touch to deliver efficient mends with intention and precision.
The Sage R8 Core:
R8 Core is a rod family focused on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary material technology through our forward thinking lens of what we’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.
