The rod will be much more important as to what weight lures you can cast.  If heavy lures, then you want to make sure the reel has enough line capacity.

I only worry about the weight on a baitcaster when its too light to throw well, like a weightless rig. Other than that id stay with a 5:1 or a 6:1 for heavy or hard pulling lures, more for ease of use more than anything else. 

As stated above the rod makes a far bigger diffrence in castability in any weight range.
