Default penn torque questions?

So I recently received the Penn torque size 5 spinning reel for a gift. I'm used to using my Penn conquer 5000. My question is.. what rod would be a good match for my new torque? I do a lot of surfcasting. Throwing plugs, avas, and other lures from 1-3oz weights. I know I want a 9 foot. I'm currently looking into the new st Croix legends. Just wondering if the reel is to heavy for this to be a long casting combo... Any advice? I'm open to other rod ideas as well in the 450 and under range.

What I have done in the past was to actually go to the stores with the reel and put it on every rod that caught my eye. You can actually see and feel the balance of the two together.
