Bit of a difference between reels for 1handers and two. But in the main, get the largest reel appropriate for the rod weight. Part of that deals with the reel 'balancing' out the rod. The longer the rod, the more 'weight' you'll need on 'the other end.'

As for being a 'factory second' don't worry about it. By the third time you've put your reel down on rocks, etc., you'll have a 'second.' With old reels the word is 'Patina.' "Time in Grade" if you will.
