SAGE R8 CORE 8100-4 FLY ROD : 8WT, 10'0"
The Sage R8 Core 8wt 10'0" is the best model for heavy freshwater like steelhead or salmon to the perfect model for bonefish, permit, or smaller redfish. The longer 10'0" length will give you more power and control on roll casting or mending while on steelhead rivers. The longer rod is great for high sticking on faster water to create a more natural drift, or having 60-80ft roll casts with ease. Many anglers are also using switch lines with these rods for added distance and control.
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 purchased this rod to cast large streamers and surf fishing. I bought it before Sage offered their salt water R-8s. I've fished streamers with drifting a major western river. The rod easily cast two large flies using a 250 grain sinking li e. I look forward to using it surf and flats fishing.
