Default Are these fly lines right for me?

My budget is extremely tight right now and need to get an extra line for my 8 wt and an extra one for my 10 wt. I found two clearance sales online on two different lines.
The first one for my 8 wt is for largemouth and smallmouth bass mostly, maybe carp and walleye and stripers too. I am looking at the Orvis "big bug" wonderline. It's on sale for $34 from $80. It says it's a warmwater line, does that mean I cannot use it when the water is cold(which is what i mostly fish)?
The second line for my 10 wt is for mostly saltwater fishing for northern pike, small sharks, bonito, barracuda, amberjack, tuna, and maybe tarpon if I decide to travel. I am looking at Sage Equator Taper II Saltwater Fly Line which is on a blowout sale for only $24 down from $69(they are adding a welded loop to the next version so its discontinued, but I can add my own loop to it), it's only in an 11 wt but I think my sage xi2 should be overlined anyways. Not sure if I should overline the 8 wt line though, its going on my sage Flight. They seem like good deals to me but haven't used either, so I need some input please!

I haven't used either rods, but both deals on the line sound like a good deal. Even if your casting is slighly impaired by overlining the 10 I don't think it would be enough to make you wish you had spend an extra fourty dollars.

Maybe it's just me, but if your budget is really extremely tight, do you really need an extra line?
