Default Questions for buying a new rod/reel

Hey guys. I am new to the board and fairly new to fishing for stripers. Originally from Norfolk, Va. I have fished the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and off of the beaches of the OBX for several years. I now live in Charlotte and the majority of my fishing is done with a flyrod in the mountians of North Carolina. I am going to be moving back to the Tidewater (Norfolk) area soon and I'd like to pursue the art of Striper hunting a little bit more. But before I do that, I'd like to get some feedback on what you all would recommend as far as the rod/reel goes. I'm looking for something versatile that will allow me to fish from a boat as well as surf casting. Right now I am looking at the Shimano Stradic 5000 reel with an Inshore Extreme rod. Has anyone used this setup before? If so, what is your opinion. I appreciate the help and I'm glad to be on the board
