Center Pin Light Action Rod

I have been nymph fishing (Fly Rod) and dead drifting with a spinning rod my entire life. The center pin concept appears quite interesting. However, the majority of the 13 and 14 foot rods are medium action. I am looking for a light action rod that I can utilize for trout. I prefer the 14 foot rod, but would settle for a 13 foot if the action was appropriate.

I understand the origin of the center pin and appreciate the heavier weighted rods, but I really prefer the lighter action.

Do you know where I can look to meet this rod request?

Thanks much.

    I'd look for a light action crappie rod in the length you want.  The first year I used a centerpin I wasn't sure what rod I wanted.   I made a trip to Gander Mt. and found a long crappie rod (not sure of the length).  The salesman told me to try it and in my opinion it worked fine.  I'm not sure a crappie rod would have the action you want but it might be worth a look.
