Either a Shimano Curado 200E7 or a Revo STX/SX HS.

any good mg reel...mg50, core, steez.

light reels on a light rod are a god-send for tip-up.

for tip-down, the steez is the better of the three at handling the heavier pull baits such as spinnerbaits.

ymmv.

If the CH50MG or Core doesn't fit your budget, the Citica or Curado are very dependable reels. I would pop for the 2009 models being introduced, but the '08s are or will be on sale, bigtime!

I have that rod in IMX and I use a Curado 100D on it.  This is one of my favorite combos and I can fish most anything I want to with it, but it is mainly my jig and plastic set up.

the contestants ( top to bottom: citica/curado Ds in 100-size, curado 200E7 and revo SX)

and the winner is:

my reasons: the 783c is an awesome rod...super light and ultra sensitive. put the lightest and most-compact reel on that you can. the revo is an awesome reel and compact but is an ounce heavier than the curado E. and, since 6'6" is kinda short by today's standards, the E7's 7-to-1 gear ratio helps compensate for the length a little in helping to take up the slack faster before setting the hook.

(note: i think a pflueger summit LP may be a good choice too...i have one arriving in a few days)
