Matching Rod to Reel

To make this easy on everyone:

What can I expect from using a rod with a reel not rated for each other? ie, the reel is too small IMO for the rod?

Lack of control, casting distance, fatigue on the arms if they are not balanced. Stares from other people. Loss of a nice fish if the reel can't hold enough line of the proper test.

 

Why not look for a reel that does match the rod? You can get decent reels from $50 - $600 to match your budget.

I am looking to build my own 11' surf/spin combo with a budget of $150.

I found one At BPS for around that price. I never heard anything about the reel in the combo.
