Grey's rods are fantastic tools for the money
I had the Grey's Streamflex GR-70, 11' 3wt. When I bought the T&T Contact 3wt, I kept the Grey's rod as my back-up. When I needed longer reach, I did not hesitate to pull out the Grey's 11'. I had tremendous confidence in that rod. Eventually, I got a good deal on a much more expensive rod on eBay. So, I chose that rod for my backup and sold the Grey's rod for what I paid for it. In hindsight, I should/ve kept the Grey's rod. That was a very efficient rod.
