A9 stands for Advanced 9. A9 has nine face with solid construction. The Nine face is almost round but still has sharp edge to cut the air. Blank is Tonkin. A9 is the advance model of A8. When you cast to the fish, the rod blank does not sound loud. This is, like A8,  for such a fisherman who is chasing for  20 incher at Henrys Fork. Action is midium.
