If your rod has a down-locking reel seat then personally I think you'd be set with 9/10 at 8 oz empty and 4.22 inch diameter. The 11/12 is 4.7 inches in diameter which is massive for a 12 1/2 foot rod.

PS. The Hatch 9 that you're selling is a really great option for your rod, but you may have your reasons for moving it.

I have both but I find the 9/10 a bit on the small size for capacity for Atlantic salmon.
