Default Questions about Stripers on the Fly

Hey , Last year was the first time I ever tried fishing for striped bass and i had a blast!

I was using a old trout spinning set up and used rapalas... This year though I wanted to turn it up a level and try them on the fly!

I was wondering what I could use for a rod/reel/line set up though.

I plan on mostly fishin them right in salt water and was wondering if the tackel i had right now could handel the job.

I was thinking of using either my-
9' 8wt. diawa with a orvis battenkill reel with orvis wonderline generation 3 fly line that i use for salmon or.
9' 5wt. orvis clearwater II with a orvis battenkill reel with streamside featherlight fly linbe that i use for big water trout

I wanted to use one of these set-ups so I didnt have to go and buy a new one, my main concerns were how the salt water would harm my stuff and if the bass would be to hard on them.
Thanks in advance! -happy fishin.

Use the 8wt and get striper line. (Intermediate) and a stripping basket
The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.
