This is probably a stupid question; but isn't the taper on the 900 the same as the 800 with 1ft more in the butt? That being asked; how much did you crop the tip?

Around a 14 size tip top Paul? Should be nice!! I did a 800H to a 12 tip, which was about 9" off the tip, works very nice with 500gr jigs!

Nice rod Paul next time see if they have any GF800XH left..there a custom blank but a sweet 16oz rod ..I have them jigging from 12-20oz..20 is its limit but if you looking for a sweet 14-18oz jigger with a 9 tip it super sweet..

It also has a deeper bend than most GF blanks ..I like it a lot...
