From what I can gather, the weight on that rod is 2 15/16 oz, so just nearly 3 oz. Give consideration to the weight of the reel when you make your decision.
Chi has you covered in his post and he's not kidding when he says he's an Abel fanatic
Definitely can't go wrong with an Abel, of any variety assuming you want to drop that Abel kind of cash.
You might want to consider the Galvan Rush LT or you may be able to find the old model Rush on sale. Very smooth drag on these and somewhere between a very progressive look to a more classic look leaning towards progressive. I have one lined up that has yet to be fished and can't wait to fish it in a couple of weeks.
If click & pawl is what you are looking for, you may want to give a look at the Korean Made Hardys, they are still nice reels. I was toying around with one in a shop a few weeks back. A guy in my local shop who has knowledge of both the UK made and the Korean made says the newer ones are machined better, which isn't much of a stretch to comprehend given the changes in technology from years past until now. If you are looking for a UK made Hardy on ebay, expect to pay as much as you would for a new one. They are also in varying degrees of condition, so a new one may be the way to go if you want a Hardy Lightweight series.
The new CFO's from Orvis look great, I was handling one in a shop a few weeks back, but they are disk drag not click & pawl. From an aesthetics perspective, the bronze color on the CFO II would look great with your SLT. The weight should balance it pretty nicely too.
Litespeeds have great drags and are very lightweight but on a classic rod like this, I wouldn't go there. Just my opinion.
In summary, my short list in no particular order would be an Abel Creek or TR, Galvan Rush, Hardy Featherweight or CFO II.
Nothing wrong with a Ross Evolution LT either.
Congrats on the rod purchase and let us know what you end up with.
