P842-2 power

Hi All,

What is the power of the the mhx p842-2 similar to? I'm familiar with st croix and batson rods but I've never built on an mhx blank. I've seen the power of the sj9000 compared to the st croix 4s76mlxf. Reviews of the sj8600/9000 say it has tons of power in the butt, the p842 is often referenced as a finesse rod? From what I've read I assume the P842 its slightly lighter than a ml st croix?

The P842-2 has just a bit more power in the mid and butt, than a 7' MLF St Croix. The tip flex is similar.
