If I had the money....I would look at a vintage Hardy - maybe the LRH model with a sweet thumbscrew drag. But enough of the wishing and wanting ---- I use the Orvis BBS and the Ross on my 4 wts...and they balance the rod nicely. What ever reel you select should be as light a weight as possible.

That is why the Sage came to mind, very light, and balances well with the Sage TXL for throwing light weight flies and nymphs ..
