For 5-7 inch plastics I use Californian CBC 12-25lb 1 1/2 - 2 oz weigh rates. (I like stiffer rod for fishing plastics)
I recently also picked up Californian Calico Special CS76XHE rated 25-40lbs. Now this is a broomstick. Works fine for jigging 80+g flat falls and butterfly jigs at the bottom. Itís also pretty good for your 9inch plastics with heavy jig heads. Itís paired with Lexa HD 300 spooked with 40 lb braid.
I also have Daiwa Proteus MH 8í rated 15-30. Like to use this for 100g jigs or flylining sardines etc. Will be also using it for poppers and larger swimbaits for schoolie YT and YFT tho year.

Hope this helps
Thanks for the detailed info. Was helpful.
