Help or Suggestion with Pairing Rod/Reel/Line

Hello, all I am having a dilemma with pairing these tools. I have vs150, vs200, gsb1201L, and gsb1081m and lb. test line. I'm hoping this would cover the Southshore, Northshore open beaches, back bays, occasional Montauk, and inlets (specifically the 2 Southshore inlets). 


My biggest issue last year was reaching the outer bar on the open beaches (using a 9' only). I wanted the 1201L as my all-around paired with the lighter vs150 on 30lb line. Then, the 1081m with the vs200 as my occasional Montauk and inlet rod. Do I have it backward? 


Thank you.

I personally don’t know your fishing grounds, but are the blanks factory or custom builds?  If they are factory I would swap reels on those rods. You could fish the 150 on the 1201L as well as the 200 if you would like. The line your using is fine for both reels, you may get a few more yards casting with a lighter line. Just my opinion for what it’s worth.
