Default Rod blank question

So I was going to have a 6'6" 2wt sevier rod made for me but Don at Sevier isnt responding to calls or emails. So the guy that is doing the rod for me asked if I would prefer a 4pc 7'3' TFO Finesse rod or a 6'6" Rainshadow? He has never built a rainshadow before. What do you guys suggest?? I was hoping for a 6'6" rod but the 7fter may be a better rod. I need your opinions

I've built 6 Rainshadow rx7 rods, 4 fly rods and 2 spinning. They are not "fast" or extra fast rods, more of a moderate fast action. The fly rods are pretty sweet for the price point that they come in at. I believe that blank comes in at around $40 or so. If I was looking for a 2wt, and wanted to save some coin, I'd go with rx7.

Everywhere I looked online the blanks are $70-$80 for the RX7 4pc and $40 for the RX6 2pc. Thanks for your input.

here is the rx7 2pc 6'6" 2wt, if you're not dead set on a 4 piece.
