Reel recommendations

I have a MajorCraft Giant Killing longfall pe 1.5 - pe 4.0 rod. It is a overhead rod. What reel should I pair it with? I was thinking of something along the lines of an Accurate bx500n or a JM PE 4.
Are those reels too 'overkill' for the rod?
Anyone have any suggestions?

    PE4 will be a good pairing.
    But if you are doing slow fall, Ocean Calcutta will 200 will do better.

    Not the Accurate? Is it too big? should I get the smaller one? or maybe a Trinidad or the Ocea Jigger? I have used an ocea culcutta 200 before and I did not really like it.

    Accurate 400 or 270 will look pefectly......... Just my point of view...... :lol:

    If you don't mind JM, can consider ocean devil PE4.
    New one only $440.
    Cheap & good.

    I am considering the accurate 400XN lefty but hard to find. The 270 even harder.

    Don't really like the feel of the ocean devil leh. It's like the accurate fury, feels cheap.

    Bro.. If you going accurate try to use narrow spool will be better. Because narrow more easy line spooling back your reel. If you going 500 size better using pe 5 rod. Good luck.

    Hands down Ocea Calcutta 301hg. Less complicated reel
