All rods you mention can do the job. Depends on your budget. Of course u pay more u will have higher quality specs.

Yeah, all the rods are okay but I'd rather you go down the tackle shop and feel the rod yourself first. I personally would go for the lightest(in weight) possible setup, so I will pick a 2500 reel. Local waters won't require much line at all.

10lbs is sufficient if you're just talking about raw strength and besides many braids are underrated. 10lbs will allow you to set 4kg drag and that's good enough. You need to pay attention on your knot connecting to the shock leader though, you can't afford to have badly tied knot on lighter lines.

The people who recommended you on the line are probably jigging enthusiasts and they favour the advantage of using minimum lure weight with lighter lines. It also allows you to load more lines on a smaller reel too. So in all, it's a good setup but it doesn't leave a lot of room for error or lack of tackle care.
