Everything I have purchased from Cabela's I've been happy with - even the cheap stuff because my expectations were low. I have a 4wt Cabela's and I think it is an FT. I love it! I don't know if that will translate to the higher weights or if it would fit your casting style of course.

If you are not set on a Cabela's rod I would recommend the Sage DS2 for an excellent price/quality ratio. Again I only have experience with one weight - 10. I think I have heard not so good things about the 9 but I am not sure.

For reels I've got an Old Florida - awesome drag!, pain in the ### to change the spool, and it has an annoying squeak which is probably easily remidied but I don't want to mess with it. I've also got a Lamson 4, the drag is not as good as the OF but spool changes are a breeze and over all I love it.
Tight Lines,
