Default Good rod/reel combo for surfcasting beginner

I would like to try some surfcasting for stripers (fishing in NJ/NY). Any suggestions for an affordable rod/reel combo? I typically fish for trout so do not want to drop a bunch of money on my first surfcasting rig.

I heard good things about the Okuma Avenger ABF Graphite Bait Feeder Reel
by Okuma. If this is the right reel, what size should I go with (up to what max drag etc)?

thanks.
