Default Reel for 330 grain line?

I recently picked up a Sage Bass rod that was too cheap to pass up. It's the 330 grain Largemouth model. As far as I understand, the head of the line is short and heavy. When I look up to see what 330 grains is, its closest to 11 weight. Am I going to need a reel that will hold an 11 weight line, or am I missing something here? Would the 330 grain bass line be closer to an 8 weight in terms of capacity due to its short heavy head? There are a lot of warm water lakes around here that hold some monster size warm water fish. I plan to use this rod for pike, muskie (if I'm lucky), and wiper...anything that's big and swims really .

What size of reel should I be looking for?

Thanks for the help!
Chase
