Looking for some help guys. How does the Greys GR70 14’ 9w compare to the Guideline LXI 13’9 9/10 w?

Looking for a new rod sub £300 but can’t get hold of the LXI 9/10 weight. John Norris has the 8/9 but feel this will be too close to my 12’9 shakey that I normally use.

The GR70 seems like my only alternative at that price range, or is it? Any feedback appreciated!!
