You do need a long rod for punching mats for bass, but it doesn’t have to be a broomstick, if it is, you will lose fish. You want a fast reel, but not the super high ratios, because big fish will lock you up and you won’t have enough torque. Always a snell knot (period). Big heavy flipping hook and 1oz+, tungsten weight, maybe a punch skirt. Then comes Denny’s advice, what’s the right action rod for flipping? Should you use a softer tip rod?
