Fishing frogs in slop is a different story. I use a Flipping stick, used to use 25 lb Mono and now I use 65 lb braid.
Anyway, to not answer your question, good luck finding a rod to do both those things well. Sometimes you've got to compromise. Pick one that suits the kind of fishing you'll do most.

Well i mostly use spooks and poppers so im not going to buy a heavy duty frog rod, i barely fish frogs anyways
Why not then buy just a cheap heavy power ugly stick package.
Put some 50 pound braid and keep it just for frog fishing?
You could probably get all that set up for under 70$ , that includes the cost of the braided line.
Once you have it , I'm telling you will use it more than you think.

I've been playing with it in the mid size creek in my back yard, and it works both Pop R type baits like the Storm Rattlin Chug Bug, and walk the dog type baits really well. The XF action helps with moving the baits a distance as well as letting the fish get a good hold with that top water hit before you set the hook.
I liked the rod so much I went back and purchased two more LTB's from their bargain that suit the type of fishing I like to do.
Go check it out. http://www.stcroixro...water-23-1.html# The listings don't give you all the specs as far as lure/line weights, but they're all comparable to the current 2012 model line, and if you call St. Croix they're really helpful and will give you all the info you need.
