Definitely buy the 7 weight; more options... for example Orvis rods come in both fresh and salt versions in this weight in terms of fighting butt.

A 7 will throw your bass stuff with far less effort; same with "beach" flies where it can be windy and you need to punch out your line.

I have broken 6 weights too many times fishing the salt; mostly when I assumed most of the stripers in an area were schoolies and then a monster strikes... Orvis has replaced one of my sixes at least five times; I'm bad.
