Most of the things i tried works fine. Flex, Fiberstore. etc.

SR10 is a quite horrible standard so that's why no-one is making them :) SR10 is only available in the bulky CFP-transciever since you need to fit a internal gearbox to get 10 lanes out. If you can run with third-party why don't just do LR4 directly? So you can be backwards and frontwards compatible with whatever formfactor transciever you got on the other side. On 100G its only LR4 that's
available across the board of all devices.
