The reel seat clearance is the draw back to these rods, check with the reel you intend to use before buying.

The rod will handle that reel but it will be alittle heavy. I was using a pflueger presidente with my rod, 7.6 mh, for stripers off a boat down near the gas docks (calvert cliffs) on the Chesapeake. If you're gonna be casting alot try to keep with a smaller reel to lesson the strain it puts on your arms. You can just load the reels up with braid if you are worried about lb test/yds

The Penn Battle 6000 would work well with the 7'6" MH rod.
