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.

The Wychwood Extricators are out and out carp rods with test curves around the 2.75lb mark. They are in no way intended as waggler rods. If you find your Drennan too stiff, the Extricators are likely to seem like broom handles in comparison.
Agreed. I have a 9ft Extricator with a 3lb test curve. It's more stiffness not less

Good afternoon,I’ve got a 9ft Sonic pellet waggler and find it’s quite suiteable for the smaller silvers with 2.6 lbs main line,I guess it’s it would also be good for F1s and chub,it took me many hours researching these float rods and I finally found a suitable compromise to so many on offer.Reelmaker
