Need help picking a Winston Kairos

I just found out i won my choice of rod from the Winston Kairos line in a raffle!!! So now I need to figure out which rod to choose? I'm pretty much set with rods for small stream trout fishing but i'm very new to this two handed rod game. I just got my first two hander over Christmas a Thomas & Thomas DNA 11' 7wt switch rod that i have not even gotten to fish yet. So what do you think? i'm primarily fishing the Salmon River in New York should i go for the 12'3" 6wt or the 13'3" 7wt two hander or should i replace my trusty Sage RPLXi 9' 8wt from a new Winston 9' 8wt should i even say it indy nymph steelhead fishing

What should I do??? What what you do??? Help a newbie out!

I fished that 6 wt 12'3" with a 390 scandi in oregon this fall for steelhead and it was sweet. Really easy to cast and super fun to fish. I would not hesitate buying one if I didn't already have a 6 wt spey. I fished the 13'3 also and felt the smaller 6 was better for my casting stroke.

Thank for the reply. I wish I could get one of Winstonís microspey! But they said I could pic any rod from the Kairos line. I only get to steelhead fish 2 to 4 times a season and I have a new 7wt switch. I would get more time and practice fishing a micro for trout. I think the 6wt would be way overkill for trout on the Delaware River.
