Way too broad of spectrum you are trying to cover with one rod. It can be done... but I don’t reccomend trying this AT ALL. My advice? If you really want a Megabass Rod - then figure out what technique you enjoy most and tailor the Megabass rod of your choice to that technique. A frog Rod is SOOOOOOO different from a Senko of fluke rod. Side note: the sensitivity of any Megabass Rod is probably a tad wasted on frog fishing. You see an explosion and you set the hook. It’s not about feeling the bite... so get the Megabass in a 7-7’3” light jig and worm rod for weighted seniors (or a light top water rod for wacky rigged Senkos) and use a lower end 7’3-7’4” rod for frogs.

He is a shore based angler. You really don't want to try to carry a bevvy of $300-$400 technique specific rods through the woods and up and down banks.
