Default 6 wgt streamer rod

I am thinking about replacing my 9' 6 wgt G Loomis IMX blank streamer rod with a new one, same length, same action, 6 wgt, but lighter. Would use it for #2 and smaller weighted trout and smallmouth bass streamers and for mouse fishing after dark. Probably few casts beyond 60'. Present rod is overlined with a 7 weight line, usually an old fashioned 333. I am looking at a Scott Radian 9' 6 wgt finished, but would prefer building one so possible blanks would be Sage One, Method, or St Croix IV, or any others recommended. I do not live near any shops close by to try rods other than St Croix. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That Radian is such a good streamer rod (and a great big dry fly rod). It throws a 200 grain Orvis Depth Charge really well as long as the fly isn't too heavy. I know they don't sell blanks, but it's a really sweet rod.
