I also picked up a CF Burkheimer Vintage DAL trout 9' 5wt. It's their full flex rod. I wanted something in the same length as my Helios but a slower action. I like to change things up now and again.

I think that'll do it for 9' 5wts.
I think you will like the Burkheimer. I have the 595-4 and it is my favorite single hand rod. I have not cast the 590, but I sold my Sage ZXL and XP once I bought the 595 and fished with it.
