The BVK 8wt is a sweet rod. I decided for it and against the 9 because of the big jump in weight between the two. For a 9wt, I would suggest you take the time to cast an Orvis Helios. It's more expensive then either of those you mentioned, but it will be worth the effort it takes to test cast it. While you're at it, take a look at the Loomis NRX. It's also pricey but the 9W NRX is a pretty incredible rod in spite of Loomis is getting a bad rap because of their warranty and their association with Shimano.
