If storage isn't a problem then I would recommend a 1pc. rod.
a dedicated flippin rod in the following:
7'6" to 7' 10" length with a Med Heavy to Heavy power, and, Mod Fast tip action, and Alconite guides/tip (for the braid)...
Just my .02¢

I'm totally uncomfortable with any rod over 7' so I do not even attempt using one
