Spey Rod/Technique

I already own a 13' 8wt spey rod but I want to purchase one that is more suitbale to my local fishery. I am looking for a 12'6" 7wt or 13' 7wt and I am leaning towards one that has a higher end flex(mid - tip) that will allow me to fish in the surf, yet take to the stream that is 5 minutes away and use with a floating line and indicator setup. This fall I also plan on using it to swing speys and streamers with a sink tip line at my local fishery as well. I was looking for a low to moderate priced rod, and I am debating whether or not to get the 13' 7/8wt st. croix imperial or the Redington Red Fly 12'6" 7wt. I know that the redington has a tip flex since I already own one. The st. croix may be more suitable for snake roll casting, double spey and the single spey cast, and possibly this new underhand cast I just have read about since the rod has more flex. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be the better buy or any opinions?
