Take a look at the Wilson

Take a look at the Wilson live fibre venom. Don't own one but I've had a play with a couple and they're a nice rod.

Yeah Mytho is definitely too

Yeah Mytho is definitely too light for 12kg drag!

How about one of the two lightest of the JM Fallings range? The new range are slightly cheaper than the ones they replace.

The Evo Titanium are in the process of being replaced too, could look at the 200gr model

When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:

n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or

n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.

Alternatively if you can wait

Alternatively if you can wait a month - have a look at the Temple Reef R7.

Will be available in spin and overhead. Might be what you are looking for.
