Excluding the part about deep diving cranks and recoil guides, you could say the same thing about a MBR843 GLX. Maybe it was the 7'5" length that I didn't like. I don't know. I was using a Curado 50E on mine. I think that I had 15# P Line CX-Premium on it. All I know is that I read great things about it on this site and maybe I was expecting too much. I have also read great things on this site about the BCR803 GLX and that is why I bought it. My 803 is here to stay. If I were to buy a rod for Senko's, I would buy a MBR843 GLX.
IMO, no soft plastic rod should be less than 7'. The 893 GLX is very sensitive and lightweight, yet has enough backbone at 7'5 to haul fish away from structure. The recoil guides took a little while for me to get use to but they are very durable. You can bend them without breaking them. The 893 also doubles for lightweight jigs, 1/4 ounce, and can even be used for deep diving cranks (10'+) or large spinnerbaits in a bind. The rod will cast a 5" Senko a country mile with 10-12 pound mono.
To the original poster, you said your travel tube is for 7' rods. The two Loomis rods that you inquired about are over 7'. The MBR843 is a 7' rod.

An excellent all around jig and worm rod especially in deep-water applications. The extra length gives you much more casting range too. Anglers have discovered its versatility for pike, walleyes, snook, redfish and other light saltwater species. It’s powerful, with a light tip and still has enough power to move fish away from cover. Works extremely well for soft jerkbaits. A classic example of GLX technology at it's finest.
