I have used the titan one tube RTPCR kit to amplify up to 2kb,
boehringer says that up to 6kb are possible; it is very nice to use
as you use specific priming and all the enzymes you need are already
premixed so it is a one step reaction!
I had good experiences with it, but 9kb will probably be too long !?
