What’s drawn you towards the 5000xd
You are limiting yourself a bit.
Comes down to the line weight, size stickbaits you intend to fish and in which terrain.

The 8000 swc hg would be a much sounder choice.
Both line capacity. Stopping power and being purpose built for top water fishing.

Rod choices are endless depending on your budget.

The OCEA S82MH would be a match for 8000 size reel

Or if you are set on the 5000 the
OCEA S74ML would be a match

The choices are many these just couple of examples.
