Our Thoughts:

The Sage R8 10' 5wt is one of the shop's favorite for nymphing out of boat, whether you're on river or a stillwater. Its longer length allows for further casting, easier mending, and superb tippet protection when using lighter lines for big fish. It has also has an incredibly powerful butt section which makes it a breeze to control big fish from diving into weed beds or escaping into a fast current. It's definitely one of our favorites for indicator fishing from a boat and we couldn't recommend it more. 

Here's What Sage Has To Say:

R8 Core is focused on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary R8 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 / fast action 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. Coming in a range from 3wt to 9wt, with a variety of lengths from 8'6" to 10'0", there's sure to be a model to fit the core needs of every freshwater angler.

Our longest five-weight is our most powerful one. Able to cast longer distances, the 5100-4FB has the greatest line control and mending capabilities. Featuring a fighting butt, this rod is great for stillwater and nymphing scenarios.
