The G2 884-4 from Scott is simply amazing. I was lucky enough to acquire one a while back and can't say enough great things about it. It casts like a dream and mends effortlessly on the water. The action is spot on for the length of the rod, and perfect for the majority of casting strokes. The rod shines brightest when throwing dries but also can handle a mid-weight nymph rig just fine. This is by far my favorite rod in my quiver and the finest 4wt I have ever cast or fished.

Bought my G2 884 unseen recently after much research and John Duncan being kind enough to take time to talk to me about it.
John was on the money with this rod, it's an absolute sweetheart and a keeper. To me it feels light in hand with a nice balanced swing weight, has a very smooth progressive through action (without being a slouch). Deep action with some reserve power in the butt section. This rod is incredibly accurate fr 20-50ft, to me the sweet spot is at 25-35ft. Point this rod where you want your fly to go and it magically lands there with deadly accuracy. It takes very little input to generate line speed and casts a razor tight loop. I'm using a Rio lightline DT 4wt and look forward to trying a few different lines through it. I've cast a lot of rods in my time and this is one of those rods that just puts a smile on my dial.

This model could be the sweetest rod in the G2 series. I use it mainly as a dry fly rod and at this I can think of none better. The first time I fished this rod was on Utah's Green River with size 20 BWO's during a spring hatch and I was able to hook and land about a dozen beautiful fish in the 16-20 inch range in a little over an hour. This rod is incredibly smooth and can generate good line speed. While I have not used this rod to nymph with an indicator and split shot I think it would work just fine. Get this rod, it is amazing!!!

G2 884-4: In fishing several G2 series rods side-by-side on the Lower Dolores, I discovered that the 8’8” rods are slightly slower action than their 9’0” brothers. The G2 884-4 is more true to the series than the 904-4, in my opinion. It flexes into the mid section on average-length casts. The 8’8” length makes the rod feel disproportionately lighter than the G2 904-4, because the weight comes off the end of the rod.
This rod requires a longer casting stroke than the equivalent S4 or Sage Z-Axis, but it definitely does not lack power. I fished it with nymphs as well as hoppers, and it proved quite capable. My go-to 4-weight is an old Scott G-Series 854 (8’6” 4-weight 2-piece). The G2 884-4 is more powerful than my old favorite, faster action with a heavier butt section. This is most versatile G2 4-weight that I tested and I prefer it to the G2 904-4.
