Gearing up on a budget

I want to hit those "Bay State Stripers." And still have a combo to hit the rivers as well. Unfortunatley, I'm surronded by some budget equipment and need to upgrade.

I have a Abu Garcia combo #7-8, 9'. That came with a now broken reel. Also on hand is a 8.5' #7 Fenwick.

I'd like to try to stay under $300 if possible.
I'm thinking I make the plung into a nice reel for a good price, like a Redington and hold onto one of the rods for now. I'm just not sure they're up for costal fishing? If so, do I go with a 7/8 or 9/10 reel. Any ideas?
