The all-new limited edition Front Range Olive colorway, available in a select few models, is inspired by the natural tones of one of North America’s keystone fly fishing venues - Colorado’s Front Range. The blank color brings to mind the earthen landscape of the high desert, canyons, and cobble found throughout the Front Range’s iconic lakes and
streams. Olive thread wraps remind us of the evergreen pines, junipers, and firs adorning the Rocky Mountain hillsides. Finished with a contrasting Myrtle wood reel seat and Stealth Black anodized aluminum hardware, the new Front Range Olive R8 CORE is right at home in the heart of western trout country.

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.

The advanced, leading-edge material behind R8 enables us to shape a rod with a stiffer, stronger backbone but a more sensitive tip and more connected feel. The secret is twofold. First, a proprietary aerospace composite with a greater hoop strength enables us to dimensionally grow taper diameter more quickly from the tip—while a nano-sintered resin application increases axial resilience and allows us to pack more fiber into the blank, resulting in that true two-way connection from hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow and control.
