Default Light spinning surf rod

Hi guys, I'm in a blanks qualifying stage to build a two-piece light spinning surf rod to fish from the beach and the piers, with the following features:
Length: 9 '- 10'
Action: Fast
Lure weight: 1/2 - 2 oz.
Used lure type:
casting Jig (1/2 - 1 oz.), minnow (7.5", 1/2 - 1 1/2 oz) Popper, WTD Skipping Lure (max.1 1/2 oz.)
Having a limited budget I was orientated in choosing the very good MHX (which I used for other works).
I've picked the blanks but I'm not sure how to center the assigned target.
The blanks ones in question are:
SU1085F-2-MHX 9'0 "2 10 - 20 3/4 - 2 1/2 Fast Med-Lt
SA1085-MHX 9'0 "2 12-25 1 / 2-1 3/4 Mod-Fast Heavy
My choice falls on the first two as the others, the 9 ',6" and 10', assume them unable to control the types of lures mentioned above (too light).
In my opinion, I think the suitable blank is the SU1085F-2-MHX, is a bit over-sized. What do you think?
Thanks in advance
