Okuma or Tica for my 8ft Tsumai Trophy surf rod?

I just picked up a Tsunami 8ft Trophy Surf rod.

I'm looking at to buy either a Tica Dolphin SE6000 or SE9000

Or an Okuma Epixor EB50 or EB65

Any of you guys have any experience with either of these reels?

Maybe add some input on which one and which size.

Thank you in adavance.

I have an Okuma ABF50, I don't care for it. The bait runner on this reel is junk. I currently have Shimano Baitrunner 6500 & 4500. The 6500 is a bit heavy, but strong. The 4500 is perfect. I'm planning on getting another 4500 as soon as Dick's sporting Goods has a decent sale/coupon.
That's just my opinion :)
