Default Reel for Thomas & Thomas XL4 864

Hi guys,

I am back in the market for a reel to match my Thomas and Thomas XL-4 864 rod. I don't have access to a nearby fly shop so it's very difficult to try on different reels to match the rod.
The last time I was here and got a lot of good advice on a reel for my Z-axis. Thanks, again for all your help with that.

If anyone has personal experience with this particular T&T rod please send some advice my way.

Thank you in advance all your help.

Thanks, Mosca!
Do you have a similar T&T rod? How do you like it?

I tried fishing with a Redington drift 5/6 with this rod and it was very top heavy. It was not balanced at all. However, I think they may have had a 5# line on it.

It's a nice rod, but I much prefer my Z-Axis. I was hoping if I can get a good reel to balance it out, it might be better. Is this wishful thinking?

Thanks.
