Euro vs. Spey rods in the Great Lakes

With everyone talking about Euro rods and there popularity within our Great Lakes region, what do you guys think of them vs. traditional spey rods? I personally like the faster action rods when fishing the surf, and on some larger rivers, but I feel that a more traditional, full flex rod would be a great tool if you want to take advantage of the rod through roll casts. Some of the "true" spey rods absorb shock better and would be great to play with for steelhead and salmon on smaller rivers in our region. I know sage and lamiglas offer more traditional action speys in 7wts and 8wts, ideal for the Great Lakes. So what do you guys think?
