The 200 is almost twice as heavy and will feel unbalanced IMO
A 150 is 13 oz and the 200 is 21 /2 ounces. Does not sound like much until its in your hands for a few hours.
The spool is slightly larger on the 200 and holds about 100 foot more line and a slightly faster retrieve.
I'd stick with the 150 to match that rod.
