Blank Specs - surf blank

I have a 9 foot 6 surf blank I bought from mudhole a few years ago. The PN is GSB1147F but the only information I can find, even emailing mudhole, is that it is a Surf, Bar & Bait Blank - 9'6" 1pc 12-25 lb.

I am trying to build this up for tailrace and surf fishing but cannot remember the lure/bait weight range. the measurements on the blank are
.710 butt
.610 @ 21"
.530 @ 36 inches
.100" tip

The G stands for graphite.
The 114 stands for the blank length in inches.
The 7 - I would guess would be the power of the blank.
The F would be the speed of the blank - or fast.

==================
Here are the specs on one of the surf blanks by Batson that have a 12-25lb line rating:
REVSU110MH Dark Blue 11'0" 2 12-25lb. 2-6oz. 0.727 9.0 MOD-F MH 9.3oz. Larger plugs, livebait (els)in the surf

You will note that a blank that is rated for 12-25 lbs, in at least this one case is rated for 2-6 oz lure weight.

So, that lure weight range would seem to be normal for a rod having this power with this line rating.

Good luck

The MHX surf blanks from mudhole with a 7 power rated 12-25lb line are all 1-4oz rods. I'd be willing to bet that's close to what you have.
