Wow. That's a toughy. I prefer a medium heavy moderate fast casting for 1/2 oz and larger buzzbaits. Heavy fast flipping rod for frogs, medium moderate spinning rod for small poppers, and medium fast casting for larger poppers and walk baits. I even use my med light extra fast finnesse rod for casting teeny tiny buzzbaits.

So the answer to your question is ... "It depends"

If you are looking for a one rod does all I might try a medium fast rod, but you will find you might over muscle the hooks on smaller baits if you are not careful.

If you're looking for an all around setup, I'd say go MH, fast action, and try to get something over seven foot. Pair it with a high speed reel, I'd do braid. If not go with something in the 15lb range.
