Sage R8 Core Fly Rod Outfits

Sage R8 Core fly rods raise performance parameters with a noticeably heightened feel and connection, whether you are fishing, casting, or fighting a fish. Our Sage R8 Core Fly Rod Outfits are perfectly matched with a Spectrum LT fly reel, in a new Silver Pine color that complements the R8 Core rod colors.

The new Sage R8 Core is quite literally the most important product innovation to come from Sage in about 22 years. The name is a reduction of “Revolution 8 Technology,” and according to Sage’s own timeline, it’s the eighth major rod-building innovation from the company since rod designer Don Green first introduced graphite rods in 1980. The Sage R8 Core is the first time since the turn of the millennium that Sage has unveiled a rod with a completely new graphite composition. The Spectrum LT reel in Silver Pine is a new color introduction to match the R8 Core rod series.

Sage R8 Core's new graphite technology delivers much greater sensitivity and connectivity down through the butt section and into your hand. “We’ve elongated the cast so you can have time for the energy transfer,” says Sage Fly Rod Designer Peter Knox. “We’ve also created a bigger sweet spot with the bend closer to your hand. It’s more efficient energy transfer for fishing—more feedback for mending, setting, and fish fighting—not just casting.”
