Thinking about a 5 or 6 weight 9 foot rod. How do that Rainshadow Eternity compare to an OEM such as Sage or Loop? I am not sure if the blue is too blue for me on the Eternity blanks. How about the H&H Xi series? Do they stand up to the Eternity blanks? I have a TFO 9ft 5 weight ticrX rod but it is very stiff. Same with an old Sage RP I have. Looking for something that feels light and a bit lively, but also has a backbone.
