Description / Sage R8 Fly Rod

Introducing the incredible Sage R8 Fly Rods, designed with innovative R8 Core technology for enhanced feel and control, allowing for unmatched accuracy and tighter loops every single cast.

The Sage R8 range has been crafted from the latest material to be developed by Sage’s expert in house design team, the all new revolutionary R8 Core technology creates a more efficient blank resulting in enhanced casting performance and a more connected feel.

This is achieved by a greater fibre surface area which results in less resin being used, creating a much more responsive blank maximising the feedback given to the angler whilst casting allowing you to feel when power needs to be applied during the cast or when playing a fish giving you, the angler, complete control.

With the new R8 Core technology each rod blank is now an optimal circular shape making them more durable and efficient compared to the original technologies that have been used which produced a compressed blank resulting in less feel and loss in power.

Each rod is fitted with high quality hard chromed snake guides and tip top and Fuji ceramic stripper guide, allowing your line to run freely and smoothly resulting in higher line speed which improves casting distance.

The 8’6 #4 models to the 9 #5 weight models are fitted with a snub nose half wells cork handle and an anodised up locking reel seat with a sustainable Ziricote wood insert.

The 9 #7 models to the 10 #7 and 10 #8 models feature a full wells cork handle with an EVA fighting butt and a corrosion resistant anodised aluminium reel seat.

The 9 #6 model is available in two different handle styles, a full wells option or a half wells option which you can choose in our drop down menus.

Each rod is finished in an aesthetically pleasing Silver Pine finish with primary slate thread wraps with white and grey trims.

The Sage R8 Fly Rod is at the leading edge of fly rod design and feature a 4 piece construction. Each rod is supplied in its own black cloth rod bag and a white aluminium rod tube. There is a range of lengths, weights and handle types which you can choose from in our drop down menu.

Sage R8 Fly Rod
Review by Euan
Cracking rod! I already have a R8 5 wt 9 and a 9 XP so this R8 10 completes the line up for my type of fishing on small stillwaters and reservoirs. Like all things Sage, this is beautiful quality, a fast but forgiving rod which is an extension of my arm and just works seamlessly with little thought - allowing me to zone in to the fishing and get lost in the moment rather than worrying if I have cast properly. Beautiful, simple as that. First class rod, not quite on a par with the XP but pretty close behind!
