Good morning

Long story short I have a credit from a broken rod with St Croix and I'd like to use it to purchase a new travel Spinning rod that I can bring with me on a plane to the Keys for a week at the end of February to fish from shore for Snapper and anything else I might find from shore or the bridges. I'd also be bringing it back with me the last two weeks of April when I'll be driving down with my MicroSkiff in tow to focus on fishing, It would be a backup to my fly gear but obviously pending conditions could end up being essential.

I'd like a travel length rod (All rods I listed are available as 3 Piece) I can use for Flat's fishing, Bonefish, Permit, Redfish, Trout, Cuda's and maybe Tarpon, that is still acceptable to catch dinner off a dock or bridge when I fly somewhere. This rod could also be used for Striped Bass up north as well. Sounds like a tall order I guess but if you had to pick one Length/ Action which would you choose and why? Also feel free to chime in about reels I was thinking a Quantum Cabo PT 40 and what weight and line type? I appreciate an explanation as to why

I don't have a whole lot of Salt experience so I truly appreciate anyone who takes the time to help me out. I created a Poll with the rods I was considering and allowed 3 votes if you happen to think 1 isn't enough. TY in advance.
