I think the zenith might actually be a bit heavier than the St. Aidan. (6 3/4 oz?) However, it might LOOK more natural on that size rod (wider, but with a smaller diameter) if that is more the issue than the weight itself. If you are going to go up to that weight then the modern 3 3/8 wide spool perfect would be nice (if expensive) way to go as well. That one balances a highlander 13’ 3/4/5 for me with plenty of room for one of Steve’s lines and backing.
