Our Thoughts:

The 8'6" 4wt Sage R8 Core is the perfect dry fly rod when delicate presentations are required. This rod has the ability to protect light tippets, turn over long leaders, and present accurately to rising fish. We like this rod when we're dry fly fishing in windy conditions or long distances. But this rod is relatively fast throughout its blank and in our eyes is less than ideal for shorter presentations or in calm conditions.

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.

The 486-4 is a trout lover's rod. Light in hand and extremely accurate, it delivers small to medium size flies to picky trout and protects light tippets during battle.
