Worms and Jigs
Assessing the Application
I think those 5 power rods would disappoint you unless you’re fishing some fairly heavy jigs. The sensitivity will be OK, but casting lighter jigs will be fairly problematic and you would be struggling with casting distance as well as accuracy as the parabolic curve just wouldn’t come into play. Your 4 medium heavy power rods (804 and 854) would be a much better choice.
BUT, if you are going after BIG fish the 5 power rods would be a good choice if you’re fishing fish in heavy cover, but you will still have to deal with the casting and accuracy issue unless you’re using heavier jigs. Heavier jigs you do sacrifice some sensitivity ever so slightly as well.
Basically I would think long and hard about 5 weight rods for lighter jigs and worms.
