Hi George
Spinning for shad and kob at night I use the exceller 9vt6. I have sucessfully used a 7ft aswell. Problem is when its windy, you need a bit heavier lure to keep the lure straight in the swell and wash.
Strange that you dont name any Shimano Reels as your weapon of choice.
My personal opinion is that the 4000 size reels Shimano (Sedona and Sahara) are in a class of their own against the other options. Smooth drag, better gears, will last longer. But this is my opinion. I currently use them as well as the Shimano Aernos 5000 and its a great reel.

I use 20lb braid on my light spinning outfits.
Hope this helps.
