I dont know about the other rods as I have only used the 8/9 with a long head line(mastery8/9 with an extended tip 98ft in total)  I really have not cast anything like this rod and the weight is really not noticable at all.  The distance is a factor but I have caught quite a few rainbows in the 20-26 inch range on 4x and 5x tippets and have been impressed by the ability to do so, I havnt snapped a tippet yet.  the rod does what is advertised and that is cast 130ft easily and that is somthing that no other rod advertises to do.
