Hammer 7' 3" MH Casting

Hammer 7' 6" XH Casting

Duckett Ghost 7' 0" M Spinning

Shimano Convergance 7' 0" MH Spinning

Hammer 6' 9" MH Casting - pair it with the Lews 7.1.1 - Braid 40lb or 10-12lb Copoly- spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, bladed baits..and possibly jerkbaits
Hammer 7' 0" M Casting - Pair it with one of the 6 to 1 reels - Mono lines 12lb - Crankbaits (squarebills/rattletraps/medium diving)
Hammer 7' 3" MH Casting - Pair it with Lews 6.4.1 - 40lb braid (use leaders as called for or Floro - Main jigs/trigs
Hammer 7' 6" XH Casting - Pair it with 7.1.1 Lews - 50 or 60lb braid - pitching/flipping/heavy jigs/possibly frogs?
Duckett Ghost 7' 0" M Spinning - Shimano Stradic FJ 2500( :eyebrows: )- 10lb braid with 6-10 lb floro - Weightless Plastics, drop shot
Shimano Convergance 7' 0" MH Spinning - Orra - 10lb braid with your preferred leaders - shakey heads/backup plastics rod

Keep in mind this is all my opinion on what I'd do.

6'9" mh w/ 6.4:1 - spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, chatterbaits, pitching jigs and t-rigs to docks and tight spots

7' m w/johnny morris or 6.4 lews- cranks, jerks, weightless senkos/flukes

7'3" mh w/7.1 - jigs and t-rigs 1/4-1/2 oz with trailers for moderate cover and shallow water

7'6" xh w/7.1 - jigs and t-rigs 1/2oz + for heavy cover and deeper water

ghost w/ revo spinning - drop shot and shaky head

shimano w/ spinning reel - could double as a senko/fluke rod, maybe wacky rigs

 

I think your covered.  If you get another rod for the extra reel, maybe consider a crank rod.
