I don't really feel like listing all 12. The reels are all Revo's and Daiwa's. Various rods Falcon's, American Rodsmith's, Daiwa's. Rodsmiths being the majority.

6'6" Shimano Compre medium/fast tip, BPS Extreme 6.4:1 reel, 12# Vanish Transitions fluorocarbon = jerkbaits

6'6" Shimano Compre medium heavy/fast tip, BPS Extreme 7.1:1 reel, 14# Vanish Transitions fluorocarbon = jigs/t-rigs (anything fished on the bottom)

6'6" St. Croix medium/fast tip, BPS Extreme 6.4:1 reel, 12# Vanish Transitions fluorocarbon = spinnerbaits/buzzbaits (got rod free, stiffer than same rod in Shimano Compre so used for this)

6'0" Quest LS-7 medium, BPS Extreme 5.4:1 reel, 12# Vanish Transitions fluorocarbon = shallow to medium diving crankbaits (rod feels like a MF in action, does not state this though, using for cranks based on softness of blank)


6'6" Quantum Dance Class medium, Pflueger President 6035 reel, 10# Stren mono = inline spinners, topwaters (rod feels fairly stout but also flexible so works well for this)

6'0" Quest LS-7 medium, Pflueger Trion 4730 reel, 8# Stren mono= smaller inline spinners, weightless plastic worms, shakeyheads

I have five set ups right now.

1. 7' Custom Allstar w/ Abu Black Max=Cranks, Traps

2. 6'6" HVY Custom Allstar w/ Abu Revo-S=Jig, Creature Baits

3. 6'6" MH Custom Allstar w/Abu Revo-S=Spinnerbaits

4. 6'8" MH Custom Shikari w/ Daiwa Excelor(7.1:1)=Worms

5. 6'6" MED American Rodsmiths (spinning) w/ Abu Cardinal 801=Weightless, Flukes, Trick Worms, Shakey Heads

That covers about everything for me.  I also use the spinning set up for white bass/hybrid fishing.  And I have a couple small crappie rigs that double as my nephews bass rigs.
