WTB: Reel for 6wt Switch Rod

I'm looking to buy a reel for my Cabela's TLR 11'0" 6wt Switch Rod. This is my first double handed rod, I bought it because it was on sale for $60, figured it's a good starter rod to try it out, being I have a small fortune invested in single hand rods. I got 375g Cortland Compact Switch Line (integrated line) for it. I am not looking to spend a fortune on a reel right now to start out. I am just uncertain what size reel to get, I know I need to up size to compensate for line size and tips/leaders. I'm only fishing smaller SE PA Waters with it so I'm not worried about having a huge drag or anything really fancy at this point.

The St Aiden should be about perfect for that rod! Mark's reel is in phenomenal shape too. Nothing better than a Hardy screaming when you get a nice fish on!

Tight Lines,
