I would think it's far better to spend like around $30 for a regular size baitcast reel that can actually cast a lure when you need it to. I haven't tried 4# test on my Shakespeare Dimension reel, only because I've got 4# test on my Shimano Chronarch 50Mg reel. Then again it's comparing a $250 reel for just a little edge in performance, but that's the nature of the beast. The real problem for me is actually finding a high quality rod to match it and there's not really a light power rod that I'm looking for. However as the finesse market expands for bass fishing, we're beginning to see more potential for such equipement in the near future. I've already seen how the dropshot rods have begun. I've been eyeing those types of rods.
