Anyone have one of these or tried it? Hoping it's a genuine #9, so good with (say) a Rio AFS 9/10. Limited experience of Greys travel rods - I've had 2, the 13ft Missionary (love it) and the 15ft Missionary (cr*p!). Suspect the GR70 will be a bit faster than either, but I want it for shooting heads so not really an issue.

I have this and have used it with Guideline 37g heads, which suit it well for my style of casting. It is a fast action rod.
