Has anyone tried the spey rods or blanks offered by Batson? I know that the Beulah rod is a rocket, but I want to consider other options before I build a new rod for Cape Cod, RI & Maine.

I have the Batson 8/9 switch rod (actually two of them). I have yet to use them for saltwater fishing or anything except for chuck N duck steelhead fishing so I can't comment on their castability. They are nice blanks and if you are patient you can find them for under $100.
