Default Reel for 8 wt Sage Launch or Sage Flight?

Hi All,

Based on all the great input from this forum, I'm leaning towards picking up an 8 wt Sage Launch or an 8 wt Sage Flight rod. I will be trying both out in the next couple of weeks. I intend to use mostly for lake fishing largemouth but also for the occasional trip to the Chesapeake Bay and the MD/VA shore.

What large arbor, machined US reel would you recommend for these rods in terms of balance and performance? I'm thinking of the Ross Evolution 3.5 or the Lamson Litespeed 3.5. I want to buy a light, quality reel that will last and hold up for the occasional fishing in saltwater. Many thanks.
