I've seen a few threads on topics where people post their setup in a thread about a given technique and other threads asking if their equipment can cover every technique, etc., but no comprehensive list of what everyone uses.

Let's hear your rod/reel/line setup for:

1) Flipping
2) Carolina rig
3) Spinnerbait
4) Frogging
5) Drop shotting
6) Shaky head
7) Swimbait
8) Crankbait
9) Weightless plasics
10) Jig fishing
11) Texas rig

For each, specify your:
1) Rod length and power
2) Reel model & manufacturer
3) Line type, test, & manufacturer

That's a lot to ask for, dude.

I'm new to fishing, but just got a 6'6" st croix med/fast paired with an abu c3. I have 10# stren flouro on it now.

Also have a crappy shakespere rod/ reel combo with 14# trilene xtra tough of it. I guess you can call that my flip stik.

Hah yes, perhaps it is. Might be better to parse the techniques into separate topics of their own.

I'll give it a shot since my setups most of the time serve multiple duties.

Crankbait: Berkeley Amp 7ft Medium Power
               Quantum Kinetic PTI-B20
               Yo-Zure Ultra Soft, 6# test  
               
Spinnerbait,Shakey Head,Weightless Plastics & Jig Fishing: Cabelas     Mag Touch 6'6" Medium Power. Reel:Quantum Catalyst PTI-A20
                                            Line: P-Line CXX Blue, 6lb Test

Frogging: Cabelas XMLTi 6'6" Meduim Heavy
              Quantum Energy BC/LH
              Trilene 12# Mono (For now but switching to 30lb braid)

Guess that's it for me but I do have other setups I use as well

Here is what goes with me when I go out with the goal of bass fishing exclusively:

-G. Loomis IMX MBR 783C w/ a Shimano Curado 200DHSV w/ Trilene Big Game 12# line.  Uses: weighted plastics, spinnerbaits, buzz baits, jigs

- G. Loomis IMX MBR782C w/ Shimano Curado 100D w/ Trilene Big Game 10# line.  Uses: Shallow cranks (no more than 6-8'), rattle traps

- G.Loomis GL2 SJR783S w/ Shimano Stradic 2500 w/ Trilene XL 10# line and 30# Power Pro or Suffix braid on spare spool.  Uses: Jerkbaits, topwaters, weightless plastics, shakey heads, about anything I need to throw.  THis combo gets used for about everything in my tacklebox and makes every trip to the water.

- Bass Pro Bionic Blade 7'6" Flippin stick w/ Shimano Curado 300D w/ Trilene Big Game 30# line.  USes: Swimbaits, Carolina rigs, rogs, flipping

- I also have a Shimano Curado 200DPV w/ Trilene 10# Big Game that will be used for deep cranking when I get the extra money or have a need for a deep cranking rod.

I actually like the way it feels and have gotten used to it being skinnier than my other rods. The grip at least with my experience hasn't been slippery when getting wet either and is nice and sensitive.
