Shep built me 4-6kg Samurai #5 last year (after I broke my other one - OIE - operator induced error) Been real good on the jacks and barra.
I normally team it up with a calcutta 200 but been using an Abu Eon over the last 3 months and am starting to become partial to it. 30lb whiplash on the Abu and 30lb Bionic on the calcutta - and I still get done.

For the budget minded don't overlook the uglystick 4-6 kg, top it with a ABU c4 series filled with 20 or 30 kg fireline and you have an honest combo that will last for years.
As for a favorite, I have a bullwhip BMP-1551 and Shimano Bantam 10Xsg with 20kg fireline that keeps jumping out of the cuboard wanting to go fishing with me, I'll give you a clue on the vintage of the rod its line weight is 6 to 15 pounds, the Bantam is over 20 years, no fancy bearings here just bushes and with regular maintenance has seen a lot of service and is still going strong, mainly sees use now in gorge country walking the rivers flicking lures for cod.
Cheers and good fishing.
