Spey Rod Selection

I've decided to buy my first spey rod and learn to spey cast. Over my 30 years of fly fishing, 20 of which have included some atlantic salmon fishing, I've developed a preference for Sage rods. Looking at their two handed rods, I think I'm leaning towards a 14 or 15 foot, 9 weight. I really don't know if I should be choosing the Traditional or the faster European model, or is it a big difference. Most of my salmon fishing takes place on the Gaspe rivers, the York, Dartmouth and Saint Jean. Maybe I should also consider a brand other than Sage. Any opinions are welcome. Thanks.
