    For that rod dun go anything beyond a shimano 300 size reel. 2500/3000 shimano or 2500 daiwa would be e best best for it. Just to share with u, 2500 and 3000 shimano share the same body but diff spool only. A 2500 daiwa has e same spool cap as a 3000 shimano spool cap bt body size n wt may differ.
    My personal recommendation is if u got e budget go fr e new daiwa ballistic 2500. Its a great mid range reel that just came out.

    I 2nd to that. Own a vivid myself. Not advisable to pair with higher than 3rd reel

    I see I see. Daiwa ballistic is out of budget atm. Maybe when I get more seasoned in the hobby will I change into something more expensive. How much lbs of braided line should I load into the reel?

    15 lbs or around there should be fine for most of the local scene fishing with that rod.
