The radial cut spinnaker is probably a lot flatter cut, and made for reaching, rather than running. I guess it all depends on what you're doing with the boat. If you're going to go ring-around-the buoys, keep both spinnakers.
As for the mylar sails, I would personally get rid of them. They have a limited life span to begin with, and I've seen more than one of them fail in rather spectacular ways.
I'd carry the 150 for light wind, the 130 for general stuff, and maybe the storm sail. If you're just playing on the Chesapeake, I'm not sure the storm sail will be useful. Better to run and hide.
Keep this in mind: if you've got this big bunch of sails and they're on the boat, the best thing you can do is get them off the boat. Back in my mis-spent youth, when I was doing a lot of racing, one of the axioms was: a dock box is the best racing device you have. Get the weight off. The boat will handle better, be faster, and less cluttered up.
