I'd highly suggest buying a Cabela's outfit. You can get one in almost any wt/length you want, and they're good combo's. Personaly speaking they're WELL worth the money. They're built by St Croix, and I love mine to death. In fact I'm buying a smaler one here shortly for my summerrun fishing. You can also buy used and save yourself tons of money. I actually bought my combo used. Ppaid about $180 for 9wt 14' Ccabela's rod, 1011 SA reel, and 9/10/11 rio WC multitip spey line. You just need to keep your eyes open and pounce when you have the chance. Good luckk You haven't lived until you've run a cataraft. Friends don't let friends run Outcasts.
