For those that might have fished for redfish and similar sized fish in salt marshes, what rod weight would you recommend? Seems like anything from 7 to 9 is what seems common, so maybe an 8 is a good starting point...I am normally not a fast action fan, but not sure if the XP is considered fast action by today's standard. Considering an SLT or an XP...leaning toward SLT but wondering if it can buck the wind well enough. I won't be able to cast either before buying, which is less than ideal.

For reference, the fastest action rods I own are SP's and I prefer a softer action than those, like LL's or Winston IM6 -type action...all of those rods are 3 through 6 weight.
