Josh,

If your rod is a 9 foot 5 weight I would buy either of the reels but go bigger than normal for a five weight. Having a reel that is a 7 wt size on a five weight rod is not a big problem and when you are ready for a seven weight for salt fishing you'll already have a reel.

Most 5wt reels are a bit on the small side and with a nine foot rod having the line strung up the rod seems a tad tip heavy. A larger reel will balance out the rod just fine and with the extra spool you can go rod shoping.........
