Size Reel for Medium Light Daiwa

I have a 7’0” ML Daiwa Aird Coastal Spinning Rod I would love to throw a new spinning reel on. It’s rated 6-12 Ib mono and bass lure rating of 1/8-3/4 oz. I will use this setup to free line baits in the marsh as well as throw small lures and little live baits on rigs up to 3/8 oz max for a variety of species including brackish largemouth bass, redfish, small puppy drum, speckled trout, sheepshead, and flounder. I’m new to fishing a ML so I’m wondering what size reel would fit well on this rod and from what manufacturer. I was initially thinking a 2000 initially but the rod is a little thicker than other medium lights I’ve seen in stores from other companies. I’m thinking a 2000/2500 Penn or a 3000 Daiwa/Shimano. I had a Nasci 3000 in the past that I loved but I’m against the hex key handle now, I would go with the Spheros. Will be using a 10-15 Ib braid. 

Any thoughts?

Same specs as a medium bass rod so a 2500 would work. I'm fishing 3000s now and move between fresh and salt.
