I would agree. Each brand's "premium" models seem to be either super fast or super slow these days. If you pick the fast end for each brand, they are all likely to be faster than your IMX. If you don't end up wanting something that fast and want to back off to "medium fast", then you're into the "less than premium" models, and your options are just endless and the price points much lower.

For many, medium fast is the sweetspot because they're more versatile, and that means the best rods are NOT the most expensive.

I tend to like fast rods. That said, treating this as fast vs. slow is too simplistic. Tapers vary considerably. There are fast rods I love and fast rods I hate. And there are slow rods I kind of like and slow ones I really hate. And I'm not you. So yes, I'd recommend making 2 lists. Fast and medium fast. Then go to Somerset and cast em.

JohnP - if you have time to consummate your upgrade, the Lancaster Show after Somerset will help you narrow your choices, especially if they again have 2 casting pools. That way you won't have to compete as much for casting time with the pros.
