Default Spey rods for bass?

So I've been thinking about getting a switch rod for LMB fishing around me. The rivers/ponds/lakes here are almost all covered with trees and heavy vegetation for the whole shoreline. Basically, no backcast room.

My logic here is, if I get a switch rod, I'll almost exclusively be using it for spey style casting, so why not consider a spey rod and get longer spey style casts. Seems to me that if I buy a switch rod, I'll get a rod thats moderately good at what I want to use it for, whereas if I get a spey rod, I'll get a rod specifically designed for what I want to use it for.

This all being said, I'm not knowledgeable about switch or spey rods. Does anyone here use a spey rod for bass or similar fish?
