Default First timer: Help choosing Rod 8wt?


I'm a first time poster here, but a long time reader. I was wondering if someone could help me out choosing the right rod for multi species that I fish.

I am currently looking for a Steelhead, Salmon, and Bass Fly Rod. What I have found is everyone says get a 9' 8wt for salmon & steelhead. With a Mod. Fast action for a beginner. I am leaning towards a Ross Essence FS 790-4. What are your thoughts?

Does anyone have any experience with a 8-weight 3-1/2-oz. Orvis Western Series fly rod? Here's the ebay item number: 250889352068 to check it out. Would it be a good buy for a beginner?

All feedback is much appreciated.
