About the XP and Xi2: I have both and to me the XP definitely has a faster action. The difference is more noticable when your'e casting a floating line into a 25mph wind on the flats. The Xi2 has a little more backbone for tossing sinking lines and lifting fish (although I have broken a couple). Each line has a sweet spot and for me it's 8wt for XP and 10wt for Xi2.
