Default Daiwa VIP vs. Quantum energy pt casting rod

What do you think is a better rod for throwing light jigs, senkos, flukes?

6' 9" medium fast Daiwa VIP Smallmouth

or
7' medium fast Quantum Energy PT

I like the split grip and no fore grip on the quantum, and it has 54 million modulus graphite. The only thing the Daiwa beats it on is that it has alconite guides which are maybe better than the pac bay on the quantum. TW has them listed as fuji hardloy, but they actually have pac bay, and idk exactly what they are, but I assume comparable to hardloy.

Too expensive. I just wanted a decent cheap rod. I ordered the Daiwa, so hopefully it will work well for what I was hoping for. I searched the internet and could not find very many reviews, so they must have not been a very popular rod. Gonna put a curado 51e on it. Gotta love closeout sales at TW!
