Livetarget swimbait rod

Looking for a seven foot blank suggestions to through 1/2- 1 1/2 oz. Livetarget swimbaits to snook and redfish in Florida tidal creeks.

I'd rather be catching!

Hello Eddie - Here is a link to a MHX rod blank that is excellent for the build. Could trim the butt a couple of inches if need be. [www.mudhole.com] - Thank You

Lure weight certainly influences choice of which rod blank to build on but I don't know how the type of lure used influences the choice of a rod blank? Is there any generally accepted source which prescribes the best type of rod blank to build a rod for, say, fishing with spoons rather than fishing with spinners?
