Default Good spey rod for stillwater bass

So I've been debating on a switch or spey rod to get for largemouth near me. I mainly fish ponds and lakes, but the shoreline is almost always trees and bushes. I'm going spey over switch because I'd rather go with the extreme and have great length 2 handed casts, than mediocre two handed and mediocre one handed. So my question:

For stillwater largemouth bass and similar species (I know this isnt what they are designed for), whats a good model spey rod and line system?

I'm not looking to break the bank on this one, especially since it will be my first two hander. Just want a reliable rod that wont snap in half when I cast it.

Can you also suggest a rod wt and line wt for this type of target species? Additionally, do I need a specific reel, or will any large arbor do fine?

Thanks in advance.
