Happy Birthday! My son's bd was on the 28th. I am sorry I can't help with the reel choices. I don't know enough about those reels, to offer advise.

These are two reels that have not gottern a lot of ink in this forum. Both fine products though and, this is not a diffinitive answer to your question just an "instinct", I would lean toward Ross F1. It is a newer design with a highly rated drag from a fine company with a new big buck owner.

From a more logical perspective; bring in your rod and see which one balances better with it as the van Staal is a heavier reel.
