My guess is that the question is about lough style not rivers. Greys are more than adequate for loughstyle. Spending more than greys is vanity.I don't have any of them either. But I would suggest a rod with a guide on butt section to reduce line sag and a downloading reel seat to balance with a lighter reel. For balance is especially important in Euro Nymphing. That said, I recently purchased a Syndicate 3wt, 11 foot (335 cm). It comes with an uploading reel seat which I replaced with a downloading seat. There are videos online which show you how to do it, It wasn't that difficult. I have been very pleased with it. And has worked very well with the Modular euro rigging.
Platinum x #7 10', 10'6", 11'3" check.Orvis Recon is a great competition rod, especially in the 10ft #7 .....I got the Mrs a pair for her comps before she demanded Loomis.
Much better than Greys that are liable to break, and then stuff you on the warranty.......
I can't stand Greys rods.....( except the Platinum range X, XD or Comp special which were amazing rods) Greys snap for no reason at all when casting......especially with Di7s and 8s
Orvis every time..
I'm satisfied with my xf2's - #7 9ft 6 comp spec and 10ft. Have replaced rings on the comp spec that I use for bank fishing. Soft cork on both is my only complaint. No breaks for me.Platinum x #7 10', 10'6", 11'3" check.
Platinum xd #7 10' x3 check.
Platinum xd #8 10' x2 check.
Comp special #7 10'.
Probably too many.
