I have a 7 foot vursa heavy and a 7/6mh vursa rod and don’t know what to use them for any tips?

 
7'6" MED HVY 9+TIP 12-25 LB 3/8 - 1 1/4 OZ MOD-FAST 15-1/2" 
7'0" HVY 8+TIP 10-20 LB 3/8 - 3/4 OZ FAST

15-1/2"

The first one is a pitching/flipping rod but can also be used for c-rig, t-rigs, big spinnerbaits, big bladed jigs, 5"-6" paddle tail swimbaits and probably many other things. 

 

The second rod is a multi purpose rod that can be used for t-rigs, lighter jigs, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, bladed jigs, etc...

 

How does one buy 2 rods and not know what to do with them? I never understand these questions. Tie some baits on and see what works.

Like a 3/8 oz  or lower flipping rod? That’s what I thought

and just wasn’t for sure the best use for the 7/6

It's rated up to 1 1/4 oz so you can definitely go heavier than 3/8. I don't know how heavy you normally pitch but I would imagine you would be fine up to 3/4 oz weight or so, maybe more. You will just have to try it out to find the upper limit of the rod. When the rod starts flexing a lot just to move the weight, you've gone too heavy.

How is the med heavy rated to 1 1/4 and the heavy tops out at 3/4?

Longer rod and moderate fast makes throwing heavier lures easier and handle better.

The longer rod is a flipping rod and the other is probably a mag bass, they are rated differently.
