Yup, it's not the best for some of those lures but get what you can afford and use it. Also with a moderate fast action you can add crank baits to the list to.

Kcdinkerz covered it.  FWIW if you had to choose one find one which optimizes your ability to present a lure like the Zara Spook and use that one.

Which one do you like to fish the best?  Buy the rig that lets you do that the best and "make do" at other times.   For me, I'm not into compromise.   I have an 18' boat and I fish by myself most of the time, so if I trip and break a rod it is on me.   Those 4 different baits require at least 3 different rigs.   Spinnerbaits/buzzbaits are different from top waters which are both different from jerk baits.   

Don't feel like you've got to hurry the process.   Over time you will see the need for a different rig and you will acquire it and assuming you take normal care of your gear over a couple of decades you will accumulate a whole bunch of fishing gear - at which point you will have to decide how big a shed you'll need to build to accommodate future expansion.

I was fortunate in my bush hippie/meat fisherman days (late 70's thru mid 80's) I had a couple of professor pals who fronted me a substantial amount of gear and never asked for it back.   That jump started the learning curve on using different rigs for different techniques.

If I had to I could go back to using a limited amount of gear for a variety of techniques, but I don't have to so I probably won't.  This attitude will probably get reexamined when I get too old to drive, or live on my own.

I think you will be fine with that. Those rods are a little bit on the stiffer side as far as crank baits go, but honestly it will work just fine.
