Our Thoughts:

The 9' 5wt is the best overall trout rod there is, and the Sage R8 Core's modern-fast action fits that mold perfectly. This rod is perfect for throwing dry flies, nymph rigs, and even light streamer fishing. If you just want to fish one rod, this should be the rod if you're a trout enthusiast. 

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 most versatile and most popular rod model. The 590-4 handles trout flies of nearly any size, lines of varying densities and does so with superb feel, accuracy, and line control.
