They are about the same price and hold the same amount of line. What Rod would be best suited for one of these reels. My reasons for asking are that I am buying throught Bass Pro or Cabela's so I wont see what I am buying first

You may pay a little more for the same thing, but you may not. If you buy locally, the value of your purchase is enhanced tremendously. And many of the better tackle shops do their own repair work.
I made a big mistake in buying a depth-finder a few years ago from Cabelas'. The price was great, until a year later when it was tied up for five weeks after being sent to oshkoshbegosh or some such gawdawful place for repairs. And that happened right at the height of the fall striper run. Never again.
Niether your post or profile says where you live, so no one can recommend a shop. If you want to post that information, I's sure that I or some other reader can point you toward a good shop.

You have some good saltwater tackle shops in your area. Suggest you check out Fishing FINatics in Everett, Sportsman's Den in Quincy, or Monahan's Marine in Weymouth. You will get good advice for the area and my be surprised at the prices.

You could also check out Pete's, Rocco's or Surfland. I think they may all be listed in the resource guide.
The other reason for buying year in local shop (assuming that they are competitive with pricing) is so there continues to be local shops.
