They are a lot larger. Most bass guys would consider them absolutely enormous. Great for passing leader knots. I fish an 804S a lot for heavy spinning applications and love it.
Any chance you can get a pic of the inshore nrx guides vs a nrx sjr guides?
Hoping to have my 921S MR this Friday, I can provide pics of it's guides but won't have an SJR for reference pics.

The first stripper guides are about the same but it’s the running guides and tip that are way different sizes. They’re roughly 2X the diameter off the top of my head. They look huge but work great.

The only comparison between the two rods is the one power. They’re different animals.

I can not add much as to the what the handles or guides will be. When we ordered our rods the first part of August we were not given a delivery date. We were just told it would be a limited run. My best "guess" is that they were waiting to see how many orders they got and then gear up for X many rods. All that is just a guess, my best suggestion would be if you want one talk to your local dealer. If you wait until they hit the stores they all maybe spoken for.

Just a little inside info but not 100% accurate. Friend of mine called me today if I want to order a 902s said u bet ya. Delivery sometime in November limited run on both models. Again just word of mouth.

for what its worth, I believe the new IMX Pro has SJRs 901 and 902 S that will be in 'permanent' production.

not conquest or NRX level but still awesome rods supposedly (i have not fished with one yet, but will one day)

Here are some pics of the NRX 921S MR next to a Megabass Whipsnake. The Stripper guide is pretty close to the same size, the next 2 are much larger as is the tip.

Stella + NRX is a wicked combo.

But of course the 901 conquest would be SJR not JWR like the 901s NRX.

The 901s NRX excels at swimming marabou up and smaller spybaits for smallmouth. A larger than normal reel and light braid. The IMX Pro 901 is very good at both of the above from a couple guys I respect in the smallie game. However big smallies will inhale and spit a light marabou at a distance out of the spook zone quicker than anything I have fished for them with. That’s where in my hands NRX comes into play.

Just my .02 for what it’s worth in my hands.
