It's not nearly as tip heavy as the NRX 895, but yes, it's still tip heavy to some degree.
Gary I think I need a 744 need a ultimate jig rod
844 I'm guessing? Yes indeed, it's a great jig rod within it's best range, and highly versatile otherwise. Of course, the details matter, and when you get to the level of Conquest rods, most guys want to be pretty damn detailed I'm working on fishing and playing around with as many of them as possible to have the knowledge to make accurate recommendations as I always do. It's just really hard to get the 902s paired with the new Stella C3000XG FJ out of my hands right now, but it's warming up... 903, 904, and 905 are getting a lot more love. The 905 with umbrella rigs is awesome, handles the 10XD with ease, and more than sensitive enough for bottom contact with POWER. The 904 handles an 8XD and a 1/2 oz jig - incredible, versatile, sensitive, light. The 903, a Senko, a spinner bait, a lipless crank, vibrating jig, swim jig, and on and on and on. Somebody who wanted to build the most ultimate, ultimately versatile combo with 6 rods and reels or less, could get it done with the new Conquest line and either Shimano or Daiwa reels.
So is that a vote in favour of the 902S? Any impressions you would be willing to share? I am most interested in casting distance, balance with your Stella and sensitivity when dragging jigs or best uses. Thanks Gary!
