Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier Reel/CarbonLite Trigger Rod Baitcast Combo
Bass Pro Shops has teamed one of its legendary reels with one of its revolutionary rods to offer the tournament-caliber Bass Pro Shops® Pro Qualifier® Reel/CarbonLite™ Trigger Rod Baitcast Combo.
Our Pro Qualifier Baitcast Reel is built to fit the way tournament anglers fish. Whether you're fishing a weekend buddy bash or the Bassmaster Classic®, this reel will put you at the top of your game. From its one-piece machined-aluminum frame and double-anodized, machined-aluminum drilled spool, to its Recurve handle and drag star, the design is sleek, light, and functional. And every feature is geared for performance, including the quality 7-bearing system with Powerlock instant anti-reverse; our Dual Braking System with click-adjustable magnetic and 6-pin centrifugal cast control systems working in concert; and a hard titanium-coated line guide. Other features include a pin-release side plate, for quick brake adjustments on the fly, a soft touch thumb bar, and a built-in lube port.
Our CarbonLite Trigger Rod is a thing of beauty, built on an ultra-rich carbon-fiber blank that compares favorably to 85-million modulus (IM9) graphite. Sleek, smooth carbon fiber transmits vibrations instantly and weighs much less than standard materials—yet has hook-set power to spare. The guides are special: feather-light, stealth-black, Pacific Bay DLC stainless steel frames with titanium-carbide inserts and a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating to make them extra-slick and damage-resistant. Split handles with P-Tec poly-foam grips (and virtually no foregrip) keep weight low and blank contact high; our two-piece Soft Touch reel seat is light, comfortable, and bridgeless, exposing significantly more blank area to direct hand contact. All in all, you'll love the feel and handling of this revolutionary rod.

*I prefer to hold the rod with my left hand while reeling with my right.
That is considered a right-handed model in baitcasting reels. Hope this helps!
You basically answered your own question as you are correct with your evaluation! You simply need to decide which is more important to you in terms of accuracy or distance. In addition, please consider that you can be very accurate with a longer rod if you are flipping or pitching. Also, consider that the 7' rod also does move more line on the hookset. Hope this helps!
7'6" MH would be a great power for cranking, but the fast tip action would not be the most suitable. Look for something with a "moderate" or "medium fast" action.
The 7'6" MH with a fast tip would be great for flipping medium cover or throwing a light to medium weight A-rig. Hope this helps!
