I understand that the old brown Sage 9140-4 has a pretty slow rod action. I have heard that the newer teal colored 9140-4 IIIe is quite a bit stiffer, but can anyone give me an opinion of how it compares to the 9141-4 Euro model of the same vintage? (I believe this is graphite IV, don't know the color). I have been considering getting a used Sage 9wt model as a first spey rod (to use with a 9/10 RIO midspey), and my friends are suggesting faster action spey models (my single-handed graphite rods are either Sage SP or RPL models). However, it seems that the 9140-4 IIIe is a lot more common to find as a used rod than the 9141-4.
