That's a big reel for soft baiting. 4000 is a good size. I got a 6-8kg 7ft rod nice match

Elite Mag Spin - either SS663 or ES664 if you want a 6'6" or ES703 ES704 if you want 7'
most of the softbait rods I build and/or use are 6-8kg - so the 664 (704) would suit that .  I still love 4-6kg tho - more sporting - so the 663 (703)  would suit that.
that is a pretty big reel for softbaiting as Clint said ... lighter the better !!!
