For most of us, an idyllic day on the water is not when we’re thinking more, but
when we’re thinking less. Finding that state of fishing in the moment, where
instinct and experience bring us to an almost zen-like awareness of each
subtle motion and movement—that’s what R8 CORE is all about. It’s not a race or
a competition, but a state we all aim to reach out on the water. With R8 CORE we
enhance that two-way connection from hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow
and control. This Amplified Two-Way Feedback Loop, 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 - ultimately
giving you the angler Complete 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.

Sage R8's The "Real Deal"

This is my 2nd R8 Rod and I feel that Sage rods can feel a bit stiff and unforgiving, but these R8's are fantastic. You can cast a country mile but it does have some sensitivity and feel to it. Best rod I've purchased in 40 years...
