I think you answered your own question. Wind and BIG BUGS would mean a tip flex or a faster rod. Plus I think they are easier to learn with (I am not saying that is what I teach, because I teach with mid to full flex rods so people learn to wait for it) I think fast action covers up allot of mistakes, so while it means it is not a great learning aid, it does sound like what you need.
