Hi there georgesn1992

A 9 foot rod is quite alright for esturies and actually not a bad option for big esturies and rivers and does the job in the surf.

I would recommend a shimano stradic 4000. This will pair nicely with a 9 foot. has the drag and line capacity for spinning in the surf and is light enough for esturies.
Paired with an assassin amia 9 foot it would be a setup any one would wish to spin with. The reel is absolute magic. But the 4000 could well be un balanced on a 7ft.

Its abit more than the reels you were looking at, but take my advice and spend a lil more on the reel and save for a better rod later or something like that.

Hope this helps, good luck.
