Looks like you're going to have to start over.

Reels: Shimano

Rods: G. Loomis and St. Croix    :D

This will help sort things out:

If I were in your shoes, I might look at a 7' H rod to pull multiple technique duty as a frog/jig/small swimbait/ledgebuster/big t-rig rod.  (actually I use a H for c-rigs too)

At least 3 of your other rods would be fine with jerkbaits/flukes so I'd skip that idea.

The other option is to think of your best few techniques and if any two will work on the same rod, replace the one you currently use with something upgraded.

Just thinking out loud
