Default Re: Opinion on this set up

Ok due to plans to move back to Scotland have ended up coming a few weeks sooner than expected And sage not having the Sage One i was hoping for in stock i have decided to go with the Xi3 9ft 9wt and a Sage 4210 reel with a Spare Spool with SA Gel spun backing ( will 500 Yds for each be enough )
do you think this will work well for Salt and Surf fishing.

I'm sure that it's all adequate

The rod that I'm using in this picture is a $25 8wt (with a 10wt line) that I've since rebuilt and I don't think that I have a single SW reel with more than 150 yards of backing. The SA System 2 reel here has 100 yards at most.
People often overestimate how much backing that they'll realistically ever need.
