It's kind of splitting hairs though at that point. The flex and kick of the stick makes more difference than the blade for most of them.

IMO.

Also, sounds like the Ai9 is really close to a One95 in design? Stiffer lower section = more mid-kick, softer blade feel?
I'd agree with this part. It also is a tad heavier than the TO, like the One95, but still well balanced. It feels like it loads easier, but that is also affected by the additional length and difference in curve than I am used to and used on either the TO or One95. I am really curious to see if the flex observations I had (plays stiffer, shoots softer) holds up on a larger rink with harder/longer passes.
