Blanks: MHX vs Lamiglas

Hello to all,
I ask you if any of you know these two blanks:
Lamiglas GP1022H
MHX SA-1025
I know the Lamiglas one very well, analyzing the data they seem very similar.
I'm looking for a more powerful blank than the GP1022H but not as powerful as the Lamiglas GP1022X, a cross between the two.
From my practical experience I found the MHX blanks to be more powerful than stated, for this reason I thought that the SA-1025 could be more powerful than the GP1022H.

Thank you for your support
Marco Cellini

There is another option that has the same line rating at 12-25 lbs, but a wider weight range at 1-4 ounces, the American Tackle Bushido 3K series. It is a very handsome blank!. I just finished building up one on their 15-30 blank for offhore fishing, can't wait to try it out!

The Kenai Special was just that, a rod for all the fish in the river. It made it a bit softer than most in thst line class, certainly all in the same class that followed at Lamiglas. It was a phenominal sucess built either as a spinning, or conventional build. Makes a decent downrigger rod also.
Todd@mudhole.com will get you with the gentleman that was the designer for many years at Lamiglas and now works at Mudhole for many years, Todd Vivian can answer your inquiry.

Thank you Spencer, but the American Tackle blank's suggested has a weight range too wide for my scope.
