  1. 890-4 X: Like the 7-weight, this is an easy casting 8 weight that naturally forms gorgeous loops with a Bonefish 8-wt line. The action is pure saltwater, but of the “accessible and fishable” variety. Trout anglers will pick up the 890-4 X and throw it with ease on the first try. Sage makes a lot of good 8-weights, however, so the distinction of this model is less evident within the crowded field: Salt, Method and Accel 8s are all outstanding. This may be the lightest of the group, however, so don’t overlook its potential just because it lives in an all-water series.

  2. The 890 is a very nice rod and an extremely versatile 8 weight. This rod swings light in the hand and has superb control at distance. To me this rod feels lighter in the hand and through the cast than the Salt, but has the same characteristic of engaging the length of the rod through the cast. This is something I’m noticing more and more in Sage’s new rods and I believe it transmits more feel to the caster while putting Sage’s graphite to work. An awesome all-around 8 weight that will appeal to casters of all ability levels. Personally I would reach for the 790 X rod for a flats stick, and I like the SALT 890 just a shade more than the X 890.
