Our Thoughts:

The 9'6" 6wt Sage R8 Core isn't a day-to-day rod for us, but you'll certainly see us throwing it when we're floating a river where nymphing, hopper-droppers, and streamers are the techniques for the day. This rod does an excellent job at handling these rigs at distant, without being too long to ruin the dry or streamer presentations. It's also one of our favorite rods for throwing dry flies on larger stillwaters where distance is required.

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 696-4FB is at home on big trout rivers where streamers and nymphing rigs are the norm and features an all-water ready reel seat.
