Default Reel Recomendation

I picked up a new Tsunami 11 foot Airwave Elite for Christmas and would like a suggestion of a good reel to mate with it. The rod is medium action and rated for 1 to 4 oz lures. I plan to use for plugging, probably with Powerpro or similar line. Its been quite a few years since i purchased new equipment and there seems to be a huge variety of choices.

My main concern after performance is weight vs line capacity. I assume using braid will help to eliminate the capacity issue which leaves question of a model with the optimal weight for my Social Security aged joints. I can definitely feel the impact of a day plugging at the surf these days!
