I recently came into a G Loomis Stream Dance rod. (6 wt., fast action, for high speed line?). It is a much nicer rod than I have ever had, but now I need a reel to go with it. I have never paid more than $50 for a reel so I am out of my element when it comes to finding a reel that matches the rod. Any suggestions?
Forgot to mention balance after reading some replies. The weight of the reel combined with the weight of the rod makes a huge difference in my opinion. I like a balanced rig for the rod specifications you posted. However; the biggest key is looking at a large arbor to make for a sweet rig.
