WTB 8 or 9wt Switch Rod

Have narrowed this down to a just a switch rather than a short spey as well. Looking to spend up to $250.
Cheers,
Nick

Am thinking Beulah Switch / Surf, Deer Creek, Echo, Reddington CPX, Batson. Looking for something with enough backbone to tackle fall Chinooks on smaller rivers as well as spring steelhead.

I have a Batson Rainshadow 10'8" 8wt switch I custom built. Matte black finish with gold single foot guides, xtra large gold tip top, and gold stipping guides with titanium inserts all wrapped with black metallic thread tipped with titanium colored thread. This rod has a lot of good mojo on it also. Has been fished maybe 5 days with about 5 steelhead and a few bull trout on it.
It works great with a 450gr skagit or overhand cast with 9wt SA steelhead taper WF line. Backbone might be a little light for some bigger chinooks, but I don't know your fighting feel/style liking.
Sweet rod I would part with for $275.
Was not intending on selling it, but could use the money to purchase a new fly tying vise. Unless you may have a Dyna King Barracuda vise you would like to trade.
