I've been doing as much research as possible.
looks like TRP Spyre brakes work well with said levers? TRP HYRD need a slight hack-saw modification?
am i right so far?

are there other offerings that work better with Campy 10-speed levers that i should be looking at?

thanks

TRP Spyres do not work with Campy, or any other 'short' pull brake lever (SRAM, older Shimano).

There is a much better (safer, cleaner, more pull reduction) alternative to the hacksaw-method for making TRP HY/RDs compatible with short pull levers. See video (and other relevant info in comments) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoNIqoguOKs

Full disclosure: This is my product.

There is also the Paul Klamper (https://paulcomp.com/shop/components/klamper/) and the old standby Avid BB5/7.

so what you're saying is the TRP Spyres do NOT work well with Campy 10-speed levers.

and the product in the youtube video will work CORRECTLY with the TRP HYRD.

seperately, the Paul Klamper, or the Avid bb5/7 will work properly with Campy 10-speed levers?

i have to be 100% sure, cuz i'm rather stupid... meaning i'm totally stupid
