I can get a great deal on a new okuma Makaira 16sea and I’m looking to pair it with my UC 7’ raptor and put the penn torque 60ld2s on my new custom gp terminator which is on the raptor now. Is the Mak 16 too heavy? I’m on the east coast and our boats require 100 yard topshot. So the 16 would have 100 of 80 mono topshot with like 400 yards of 80lb threadlock hollow backing. Maybe not west coast ideal but with our restrictions best case. Let me hear your thoughts

Slap it on and pull some fish on it. That'll determine if the set up feels right for you. On these bigger rigs, I see all kinds of rods and all kinds of reels being paired together. What works for one might not work for the other.
