Question TFO spey rods?

Well it looks like my Sage two-hander deal fell through so I am forced to pick up a TFO. What TFO is close in style and feal to the Sage 9141-4 European style rod? I am currently trying out the 9wt 14' proffesional from TFO. It is nice but a bit big.

Try the 13'3" TFO. Very light and throws Skagit heads thru longer bellys (CND GPS 7/8) well.

I find the TFO 13'3" does fine with short bellies, but falls short on mid and long bellies due to too much wobble in the upper half (poor damping).

the Redington RS3 13'3" 7 wt is excellent across all belly lengths, but a little more expensive. I find this is a highly underrated rod. It matches nicely with the WC 7/8/9, midbelly 7/8 lines, or Skagit 550.
