Default What size reel?

I have my st croix rods and as most of you know have been looking at reels. After testing out several I have just about decided to go with the pfleuger president.
My rods are 6'-6" 2 piece med lite triumph and a 6' 1 piece med lite premiere. With as many people on here that recommend both the St Croix rods and the President reels someone has got to have a combination similar and might provide a valuable opinion. I am planning on getting back to gander or sportsmans to actually see if I can actually test the reels on the rods. I was thinking of going with the 6720, 6730 or 6735. Which would you go with?
Thanks

I'd go with the 30's.

I agree with human cannonball the 6730's would be a good choice for ML rods.

I would go with the 20. 30's are pretty big and heavy IMO, and I wouldnt want to throw that around all day. I think a 30 would back-heavy that combo.

Anyone here ever use Penn reels? I would like to by an American made reel and Penn is about the only one I can find under $100.
