I'd go with the #8 myself, to accomodate longer belly lines. These reels are very light.

I agree completely. It's not so much a matter of matching the reel to the rod as much as it is the reel to the line you intend to use. Unless you're sure you'll only use a Windcutter-type line, without the upgrade, I'd say the #8 is the way to go. Even for a Windcutter-type line, I'd be likely to stay away from the #6 unless you didn't need much backing or wanted to use GSP. Since the prices are close, and there is only about a half ounce difference in weight, I'd say go for the largest size.

I use a BG 7 on my Scott 1287 and a BG 8 on my Scott 1509 - I have xlt's (7-8 and 9-10) on both reels and both are filled pretty much to capacity. Actually had to go to gelspun on the 8.

As juro indicated, they are light reels and the 8 does not really balance the 1509 all that well so agree to go with the 8
