Default Orvis Superfine 3wt- maybe the best for me

I was in Chicago this weekend for the Cards Cubs game and I found an Orvis store. I don't have a whole lot of experience with casting a bunch of different rods (TFO pro 8'6 5wt, Older St. Croix Imperial 5/6wt 9', and a TFO Ticrx 9' 8wt) but I got to cast a 6'6 Orvis superfine in the back ally and I think I'm in love. Not only did the salesman have me casting better than I ever have but the rod just felt perfect in my hand. Thanks to that salesman who's name escapes me.
Is there such a thing as perfect? Or is it just the price point of a better rod. Do all the expensive rods cast that way or does the full flex just fit my style. I need some more experienced members opinions. I can tell you this though, I can't stop thinking about how great that rod made me cast.
