Take a look at Cabelas CGT glass rods.

If you can still find one, the Redington CT for $75.00 can't be beat.

How about the Echo Carbon?
It's listed as med-fast in a 6'6" 3wt and med-faster in a 7'6" 3wt.
$169.00
I love my 8' 4wt.

TFO Signature series casts easily without overlining, or if you want to build your own a Lamiglas FL783 (6'6" 2pc) is one you may want to underline.

I own both and frequently use a dt2f on the Lamiglas, and have even used a wf1f line on it with success.
The TFO signature (7'6" 2pc) is one of the few 3wt rods I have owned that really feels well mated to a 3wt (wf3f) line.
I'd call the Lamiglas a slow action, and the TFO a medium.
The TFO Pro is just a bit faster, but also does well with the rated line size (I own the 8'0" 2wt).
