An effective Spey cast is dependent on efficient transfers of energy in each of
its three key components: the Lift, Load, and Delivery. Utilizing our proprietary
Revolution 8 graphite technology along the full length of double-handed rod tapers
results in a blank with an unmatched ability to capture and carry power, plus
exceptional tracking. Energy produced during the cast and applied directly to the rod
are transmitted entirely into the line, so Spey casters aren’t required to compensate
for lost energy or imprecise rod reactions. With SPEY R8, casts are smooth,
instinctual, and consistent.
Lift - Adequate stiffness, power, and responsiveness paired with light weight ensure
no efforts are wasted and fatigue is minimum when lifting long or heavy heads, sink
tips and flies.
Load - R8 Technology maximizes the amount of energy collected in sweep or touchand-go moves, carries it into the D-Loop, and transfers it smoothly into the rod.
Deliver - Responsiveness and tracking abilities of R8 Technology diminish lost energy
and reduce lateral movements upon the forward stroke, increasing power and
In designing our new SPEY R8 rods, we recognized there isn’t a single rod action
appropriate for the wide variety of Spey fishing applications found around the globe.
We identified four distinct Spey rod applications, each with its own unique set of
requirements. This new approach matches rod action to application, ensuring anglers
have the most fine-tuned Spey rod for their fishing. Across the family, our Revolution
8 Technology ensures a remarkably smooth and intuitive feel, no matter the line

Sage’s history designing and building Spey rods dates back to the late-1980’s - nearly the
beginning of the company itself - when America’s Spey Revolution was just beginning. While
the SPEY R8 family’s performance is a culmination of our most-advanced material technology,
blank designs, and rod weight-length configurations to date, we’ve chosen the aesthetics as
a nod to our deep Spey rod history, the pioneers of this niche within fly fishing, and of course,
the anadromous fish themselves. Every detail is a thoughtful mix of functional intention and
traditional looks. The overall look feels fresh yet familiar, is distinctively Sage, and inspires you
to pick up the rods and fish them.
Blank Color - Rich and warm, Ale colored blanks paired with black and gold trim wraps signify
the meeting of history, culture, and innovation.
Wood Reel Seat - A traditional deep walnut insert paired with Granite machined aluminum
componentry follows a classic theme and is complementary to the Ale blank color.
Cork Handles - Excels in the majority of Spey fishing situations and are best suited to handling
a mix of line types and casting styles.
