Light spinning surf rod (two-piece)

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 selecting 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
• ST1144F-MHX
• ST1204F-MHX
My choice falls on the first two as the others, the 9 ', 6 "and 10', think them unable to handle 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?

Thank you for your support
Marco Cellini

Marco they are 2 piece
here is confirmed proof directly from rod geeks hope this helps you build a great rod

Hi Matt,

Thanks for reaching out! Both of those blanks are 2-pieces, split 30/70. Any blank with a "2" at the end of the model number is a 2-piece blank, and all 2-piece surf blanks are split 30/70.

I hope this helps!
