I have since had a proper play with the browning and it’s not too bad at all, certainly as close as you’ll get to a float rods action at 9ft. 10ft still gives you many many more options though if you can do it.

I have always though that a 9ft Medium Spinning rod is the most versatile fishing rod that exists. There's also absolutely loads of them covering every action imaginable.

I have an older Maver Distinction Excell Spin 9'6 that has a lovely tip. What you want is certainly out there, I seriously suggest that you include spinning rods in your search criteria though.
I agree light spinning rods are certainly something the OP should look at.
Light as a feather big range of actions.

The Shimano Alivio rods are dirt cheap.

Most 9 ft spinning rods have casting weights of 10 to grams and will be hollow tipped (tubular) to feel for bites.

OP - take a look.at Shacky mach 3 or drennan puddle chucker ranges - both have soft through actions.

Just ordered a Stillwater Matchstix 9/11ft waggler from Angling Direct. Might be worth looking at
