Olde English 12' 4/5wt spey blanks

Hi Mates!

I'm totally new to spey fishing, so my question is going to be a little bit difficoult. :)
So I've found this Olde English 12' 4/5wt spey blanks, and i've become interrested, because maybe this is the only spey blank on the market I can afford. Has any of You built a rod on this blank? What are the impressions? Are they fun to cast and fish? Aren't they too heavy related to fancier blanks? My only (and only half-relevant) reference is a Rainshadow rx7 7wt switch. How do the two compare? Anyway... do You like it or not, would You recommend it?
Spey fishing is not a must for me. I would use it on very-very-very big rivers for asp, where mostly I'm allright with single hand fishing with no compromise. So if You tell this blank is no fun, I will leave the idea with ease.

Thank You for your answers!

I wouldn't worry about the weight of that size rod. Two handed rods and how they work and feel while your using them is a whole new experience. They haven't always been like they are now, my 14 Ft. 8/9 is still a pleasure to fish all day.
