ok i just got a reel seat and cigar grip and have decided to get a forecast 8' 4wt in 3 or 4 pc blank

here is a pic of the grip and reel seat
the reel seat is a down locking sliding band with a rosewood insert



i am figuring on candy apple red thread to go with the reel seat and chrome guides to go with the hard ware

i am thinking about using a metal winding check for the first time but not sure if i even will with how small the grip is
but if i do how do i figure out what size check i need?

one last question i need suggestions on a reel for it price range is 150
