Default which rods and reels for plugging/surf casting/etc..?

i have a shakespeare 9' pole with a prius reel[came as a combo] for my striper fishing. unfortunately it doesnt have a baitrunner feature but im working on purchasing that. i was just wondering what kind of setup you guys are using for the different kinds of fishing..i.e.-plugging/jigging, surfcasting, boating, etc...
i know my surf pole is heavy action and makes for stiff plugging. could i use a medium action pole with a lighter reel for plugging the stripers? im gonna be looking into purchasing "the better" types of poles and reels and i just needed some input as to where i should gravitate as far as action rating and brand. thanks!

9 ft. with penn 550ss reel would be good. fast tip for plugging. or 7 ft. with a penn 440ss reel. I use a 7 ft. with a mitchell 411 Lefty,410 righty in the boat.

I use 7' mediums for jigging and most of my plugging. I use a 10' for throwing heavy wood and metal. I also use a 7' light action for throwing small Storm Wildeyes and other rubbah. I also have a 8.5' I use when I need something between 7 and 10' lol :)
