The Zenith has an especially ugly reel seat that clashes with the looks of most reels. The Hardy Ultralite DD reel meets all your parameters, and is color-coordinated with the Zenith reel seat to boot. I'd say it's an easy choice.

I have a Lamson litespeed 2 on my Zenith 9' 5 wt. It balances great, and the color of the reel and the reel seat are very close, so it looks fine...for what that is worth!

Thumbs up Re: Reel suggestions for 9ft 5wt Hardy Zenith

Of the reels you mentioned, the Galvan is an excellent choice. I would put that as #1, the Nautilus as #2, and the Lamson as the #3 pick.

Galvan makes one heck of a reel, and the Torque is their flagship.
