Need some help here as I am not well versed in this style.

It should be. People who do that kind of fishing like 10' rods because they can keep more line off the water. I have a 10' 5wt TFO that was recommended by a guide for high-stick nymphing, although I haven't used it that much. I also have a Greys 9' 6 wt X-Flite (the predecessor of the XF2) and it is a very good rod. So at least you know you have the right size and a reliable brand. The rest is up to you.
