Have you found these combos on the internet? Personaly I don't like buying gear off the net. I think its better to go to your local tackle shop where you can handle the gear, get some good advice about the gear and local catches. Plus you are supporting a local business. Often the internest looks cheep but once you add on the postage it can be a false economy.

Most tackle shops will give you good advice on what will suit your needs. Generaly for spinning you won't want anything too heavy just something that can chuck a couple of ounces max and whatver size feels good for you, I use an 11.5 ft bass rod but 10 ft is a good size for a spinning rod. A fixed spool reel with a light line is all you need to get started. Looks like either of the setups you've been looking at (or similar) will be okay.
