Default Click reel - Battenkill or Drift?

So I have a "need" for a classic click reel for my Redington CT 9' 4wt. The cupboard is a little bare right now (more so than usual), so I'm trying to decide between the Orvis Battenkill or the Redington Drift.

I'm leaning towards the Orvis because of it's classic look, but I've seen some comments that it's too light to balance a 9 foot rod. The Redington is a little heavier at 3.5oz. Is anyone here using the Battenkill on a 9ft rod? Am I over-thinking what should be an easy decision?
