Default New Arsenal...????

Got out of Bass Fishing for about 2 years now =(
I got bit by the bass bug again. I wanna start fishing again.

Here is a look into my new system/arsenal I want to build for this year based upon my knowledge and experience thus far with the sport of bass fishing. Its geared towards what I like, feel and have come to known about bass fishing gear and techniques for so. cal lakes and ponds.

Spinning Reel:
1 x 6-8 lb

Spinning Rod:
7 Medium extra fast

Casting reels:
1 x 10lb
2 x 12lb
2 x 15lb
1 x 30-40lb braid

Casting Rods:
7 Medium med/mod fast
7 Medium extra fast
7 Medium heavy med/mod fast
7 Medium heavy extra fast
7 Heavy fast
72-74 Medium extra fast
72-74 Medium heavy extra fast

In my opinion...I can cover "most" techniques with the above system. The only techniques I can't cover is large swimbaits and alabama rigs. I personally don't like fishing those techniques. But with the above system...I feel I have hit every technique in the book albeit the swimbaits and A-Rig. My system is geared a little on the finesse side of every technique.

Tell me what you guys think. Where can I improve or any suggestions as to where I might need a specific rod or reel? Technique Specific?

Thanks for the help.

I will make it easy for you. Buy for your go to techniques. So if your a CB fisherman then buy CB rods and choose your line based on the water you will fish most often. Don't spend tons of $$$ on stuff you may or may not use. Just my $0.02.
