From the last few days of playing this way, it looks as though I need to alter the setup a bit. As comfortable as everything else with this configuration is for me, the hats are just a bit further away than I'd like.

Choices:
  1. Move the 13" tom to the floor, by the 16"
  2. Replace the 12" with a 8" or 10"
  3. Learn to play Open <*GULP*>
  4. Move to a 20" Bass Drum
  5. Buy a longer sticks
  6. Mount hats on Bass Drum & use remote
I don't play open handed naturally, but do a lot of open handed stuff on a set up like this. Both hands can easily reach the hats and both cymbals.

You left out an option:
7. Raise the rack toms and move them over
