    SAGE R8 CORE 690-4 FLY ROD : 6WT, 9'0"

    The Sage R8 6wt 9'0" is the perfect all-around trout rod for rivers and lakes especially if you are out West where you need to cut through some nasty wind. The Sage R8 6wt 9'0" is the best tool for larger rivers, larger nymph rigs, or streamer fishing. The 9'0" is perfect if you are going to do any dry fly, high sticking, nymphing, or longer distance casting. The 6wt 9'0" is a perfect all-around versatile model that will allow you to dry fly, nymph, or throw chunky streamers. 

    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.

    I own both the sage x 690 and the R8 690, accuracy is spot on with easy distance. it is hard to recommend the R8 over the X with the performance for me being similar.
