I would go to something at or over 7' like either the AVC70MHF or AVC70HF

I don't see how it's gonna work....It's a bit more difficult casting a crankbait on a stiff rod with a fast tip.

I prefer a moderate action rod for treble lures.

I agree with gremlin. You could use one rod for all those baits but they won't all work optimally. I think one of the rods I recommended could be used for all of the lures you described EXCEPT for the crankbaits. Again, you could through cranks with it, but there would be better rods for doing that.

If you just want one rod to fish them all, the AVC70MHF or AVC70HF will allow you to fish most of those baits more than adequately.

I think that's probably the best answer, but just to throw out another idea:

I have the AC66MF which I consider my "all-around" rod for treble

hooks, spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. Although the rating is fast, the tip

is soft. The 6 1/2' length makes working jerkbaits and topwater easier.

For light and medium weight crankbaits, the AC70MM is my specialty rod.

Please consider checking the rod's specifications for bait size and line test.

Then go from there when selecting your rod for the way you want to fish.  :D

From what you asked, I think what Roadwarrior said makes a lot of sense. Each rod has a specific purpose and if you match the set-up with the rod's specs you will have the best set-up available.
