Sage Salt R8 Fly Rods exhibit the highest performance, greatest strength and best touch in a saltwater specific rod available today. 25% greater strength per rod equals greater pulling power for faster landing and less stress on fish.
Let's be honest the Sage did not hit it out of the park with the previous salt specific "Salt HD" model. The Salt HD was way to fast on many occasions and lacked the feel and touch when making short and medium distance presentations. The Salt R8 does not sacrifice the feel and touch in a saltwater rod. The Salt R8 prioritizes touch and speed for shorter shots and on demand casts with an intuitive sweet spot.Sage worked with experienced guides and rod designers to maximize the finest raw materials on the market creating the very best saltwater specific fly rod to date.
The Salt R8 is available in line weights 6,7,8,9,10,11,12, and 15. Features include: Revolution 8 Graphite Technology. A beautiful Tempest Blue blank color. Slate primary thread wraps with graduated white and grey trip. Premium flor grade cork handles with EVA Butt. Each rod includes a black rod bag with new cord lock for quicker, easier and cleaner storage and an aluminiuym rod tube with Sage medallion.
