what weight rod???

Hi everyone, I'm a newby looking for some supreme wisdom.
I got hooked on bonefishing and cuda's last year in the bahama's. Bought a medium action 8wt. and a Big Game #4, Worked Great. Now I want to also try for Permit, Baby Tarpon Jacks and the such. I am trying to decide between a 9 or 10 wt Sage In the RPLXi or the XP. The XP is a little faster like I like but has small guides?? Also getting another reel and thinking of the Big Game #6. I have been flyfishing all my life in Montana but am a blue water beginner. Whats some helpful hints to help me decide. I have a trip planned for belize this jan-feb.so I am really stoked and getting ancy.
Thanks for your time
