Our Thoughts:

The Sage R8 Core 9' 7wt is one of our go-to rods on a day-to-day basis. The action this rod provides is perfect for handling big articulated streamers on heavy lines, but still provides a ton of delicacy when approaching a tailing carp on a flat. This rod can also excel on stillwaters if you're exclusively throwing streamers. These are the usual tactics and fish were targeting, so if you're like us, this is the rod for you.

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.

A very versatile and often-overlooked rod weight. The 790-4 is equally at home fishing streamers from a drift boat, bass fishing, or fishing for trophy trout and salmon in Alaska. When venturing into saltwater, the 790-4 R8 CORE is a very effective light flats rod, perfect for spooky Bonefish on shallow flats.
