SAGE R8 CORE 486-4 FLY ROD : 4WT, 8'6"
The Sage R8 Core 4wt 8'6" Fly Rod is the trout lovers rod of the R8 Core Series. The fast action and deep flex profile of the 4wt R8 Core makes the rod the ideal rod for the most technical of trout fishing. The R8 will throw diminutive dry flies at long distances. The soft but strong tip protects even the lightest of tippets. Nymph with the sensitive tip to detect unseen strikes. The do-it-all 4wt 8'6" R8 Core represents the technical trout rod from Sage and utilizes the next generation of graphite technology.
R8 CORE is 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.
The R8 Core features a new pattern of woven carbon fiber that allowed Sage to impart more of their proprietary resin into the blank. The result of this new pattern means that the rod is stronger farther up the blank than competitors. The combination of the new carbon fiber pattern and more resin makes the rod incredibly light in hand while not sacrificing any strength in the top 1/3rd of the rod. The new Revolution 8 Technology makes the R8 one of the most technologically advanced rods on the market. The R8 is finished with a dark olive blank, grey primary guide wraps with a handsome gradient grey-to-white tipping.
