That reel isn't huge, so any 6'6" to 7'0" casting rod will work. Pick your favorite brand, model, action and go to work. I find that my abu round reels don't really cast any farther than the low profile reels. Of course, if you tie on a large lure with low wind resistance on a long flexy crank rod, you'll get great distance. However, the same would happen with almost any other newer reel.

I think rods over 7' are tough to handle in a canoe/kayak, particularly casting rods due to the longer butts and lack of room around your waist to work the rod with your arms in a comfortable position whilst sitting. Something to consider.
