    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!

    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.

    ....Just one more cast...
