I love my 9wt GLX. I also love my 9wt TFO professional at 1/4 the cost

Seriously, there are so many choices and they'll all work for you. I would be prepared to spend a bit more on the reel since a quality drag mechanism a much bigger factor than rod in bonefishing success. Saying that, my first bonefishing trip I used a Sci Anglers System II 8/9. Other than the caliper drag going into freespool a couple of times and a few bruised knuckles it help up fine.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
