Ideally for off the shore beating on biggish salt water fishes i think the "modern" idea would be a TFO Switch in 9#, a GDE, grain delivery envelope 500/750gns and a 45' SA head. But to get you into the right mind set, grab one of those Penn 49L Mariners and hang it under the rod.
I'm not kidding when I say that it will take a lot of US bucks to beat that outfit on the species you want but it will cost about $500 maximum. And perform like all hell let loose.
The TFO switch, DH casting, beats the hell out of SH 9 footers.
