I would suggest an 8 or 9. I find that for most of my light saltwater duty (bones, reds, snook, baby tarpon, etc.) that a 9 wt is in my hands more than any other size. It handles wind better than an 8 and allows you to more comfortably cast larger flies. Unless you are heading to Central America or some places in the Bahamas, I think that 6 and 7 wts are of little practical use in the salt. The 10 that you already own is perfect for permit and calm weather tarpon and the 11 will handle any tarpon that you hook.
