Ever consider a custom built?
I just wrapped a jig/pitching rod for a guy built on a Hydra blank that was the lightest most sensitive rod I have ever put my hands on. 7'3" 1.2 oz blank weight Medium Heavy fast action. While I was aligning the guides a mosquito was buzzing around near the tip so I gave the rod a flick and when the tip hit the mosquito it felt like I had connected on a slow pitch softball and hit it over the fence.
When the rod was fully built it weighed right around the 2 oz. mark and balanced perfectly with a Revo Premier.
Hydra overs a full line of blank specifications and I can build one out to just about any style you can imagine for less than 2 tanks of gas.
