Reel suggestions please

As a birthday gift, my wife gave me a phenix M1 7'7" MH fast action rod. It is really beautiful! She knew I was looking to get a solid top-water/flipping/jigging set up. So now I have to find myself a reel. I should mention as well that I just bought a kayak and was planning to do most of my top water and jigging off the yak.

I am now looking for suggestions from all of the top water experts out there. Regarding the price, any range will be considered, and don't leave out the expensive nor the cheap! I will consider all reels of any class as long as its a good match for this rod. Thanks everyone!
