Looks to me like you've made some good choices; Sage makes nice gear in my opinion.
If you're going after Permit, I might up your rod weight to a 9 wt.; particularly if the Permit are going to be good sized. I don't think there's very much difference between an 8 wt. and a 9 wt., but the 9 wt. will give you more fighting power for the fish that you hook and is, generally, a pretty good all-purpose saltwater rod.
If you're reef fishing, don't forget to take lots of flies!
Sounds like a great adventure that you're embarking on - have fun!
