For wacky rig, I use a 6'6' M spinning rod, for cranks I'll use a 7'+ M-MH baitcaster (with moderate action), dropshot I use a Shimano Crucial Dropshot rod (7'2" M) and for small worms I use a 7'M or 6'6" MH baitcaster.

As for longer rods, some techniques work better with them, some work better with shorter rods, but for the most part, it is personal preference.

I like to use a shorter rod when using Jerk Bait.

Same here. My favorite jerkbait rod is a 6'6" All Star M. I prefer the shorter rod length because the rod is pointing down towards the water, making for easier twitching movements. This is important to me since I'm fishing from a rowboat and literally standing at the waters height.

I just don't do enough Jerkbaiting throughout the season to warrant purchasing a 6'0"ft rod, but that just may change in a year or so.
