TOPIC: Need help pairing current equipment and buying new

Need help pairing current equipment and buying new 1 year 4 months ago #3058

Hello fellow fishing enthusiasts.
I am currently having some struggles with pairing up my current arsenal of rods & reels to ensure they are being used properly and for the right techniques. I am also in the market to get another rod (or two) and reel(s) to match up. I took a 10yr hiatus from fishing and over the last two years have been getting back into it. Being locked up in the house last winter from a shoulder surgery caused me to go a little overboard with buying rods and reels (and TONS of tackle), but I think I'm missing a few key combos to land some monsters this year. (think I don't have a proper crank-bait rod)

Below is a list of my current rods & reels with some of the needed specifics. I need all the help I can get to make sure I have the right stuff before I start to buy things that are redundant (I feel I already have though). Any insight or suggestions are welcome.

REELS
Okuma Cerros - Casting - 6:6:1
Lews Mach Speed Spool - Casting - 7:5:1
Daiwa Exceler 100 - Casting - 7:3:1

Lews Mach I Speed Spin - Spinning - 6:2:1
