    Rod / reel balance should dictate size of reel to rod. personally shimano 2500 stradics work for ne from ultralite thru med. heavy power rods. I got into the jdm shimano 2500 reels with shallow spools for panfish and they are excellent(see ebay). this size eliminates line management issues and gives you many options.
