Default combo trolling/bottom setups?

Is there such thing as a good multipurpose trolling and grouper/jack setup? I have looked at the TLD, fathom, squall, and tyrnos but I am not sure if there is anything that will be a happy medium for all. Live in N AL and would like to stick with Penn or Shimano due to locally available parts and service. We have plenty of snapper tackle 20-40 sized tackle but want to add a few larger setups to the arsenal for some dropping and trolling around the edge.

I bought a penn 50 visx with a bent butt. We use it for trolling and deep drop.the 2 speed helps when reeling from 300 feet. Loaded with 200 lb Hercules braid.
