The 9140-4 Ignither is a longer and bit beefed up compared to the 8136-4 Ignither. Its completely different than the 9140-4 Method,which is an ultra fast and stif 14'#9/10. The 9140-4 has a deeper smooth action with a bit lighter tip/upper part of the rod. I use the 9140-4 Ignither for most of my summer salmon fishing on rivers like Gaula using Scandi lines wieghting 38-40 grams. The rod has a lively action and some might feel the tip is a bit to light to pick up Sink 5+ shooting heads and big flies, but I have not had anny issues with this in just slowing down the pick up and using more of the middel part of the rod to do so. The smooth increase of power through the blank makes is a good rod to play the bigger salmon.
Compare do the SAGE 9140-4 X, its a bit more stepped up in action. And I use the X more with Floating/Intermediate heads. In turns of casting, I personally like the Ignither because it has this more 3/4 type of action with better excelleration in the rod
