If you spend less on the reel you can afford a better rod.
Excuse me for assuming this, but I am guessing you are somewhat new to fishing in general.
I would get something cheaper than a revo to keep overall costs down for the whole setup until you learn what you like a little more.
And I agree for what you are trying to catch, I would go MH/F 7' +
I would probably buy a Vendetta 2 (MH/F 7'-7'6") [80$] and a Lews Speed Spool [100$] MSRP for everything.
You can get this all cheaper online or during a deal.
Personally I wouldnt go out trying to catch huge carp or salmon on my dedicated bass gear, but that is me.
