I wouldn't bother with a 12 on a "might run into." A good 10 wt is actually a very strong rod. I've beaten tarpon up to 145# on a 10 wt in 15 minutes. Never felt the need for a bigger rod, I fished for years for tarpon on a 10 wt in the Keys. I do fish 12 wts when the wind is really up in the Keys. But for the most part I rarely feel the need.
