The MHX SJ783-2 may work. It is listed as a medium power, but it is actually more powerful than the MHX MB783 which is listed as a medium heavy power. It is an excellent blank at a very reasonable price, and comes with an outstanding warranty. MHX also sells extra tips for all of their 2 piece rods, you just have to order them via telephone, since they are not listed on line.
