Default Re: rod-reel balance...help

Just guessing, that reel might be a little heavy for that rod, but not by much at all. Some prefer the balance point to be in the middle of the cork, some at the point where your index finger sits when gripping the rod. I think anywhere in that range works just fine.

The Avid rods are quite light. I would suggest also trying the Imperial series, which is likely a little heavier and might balance better with that rod. The Imperial are a little faster (which I prefer above a 5wt) and happen to be a bit cheaper too.
