Default Guide size help for a 2/3wt 12'0''

Hey All,

I'm planning on building a 2/3wt 12'0'' but I'm not too knowledgable about guide sizes for spey, plus its hard to find info on a spey rod this low in weight. Can anyone give me an approximation of what might work well?

I was thinking maybe 12 and 10 strippers, a 6 or two, some 5s, 4s, and maybe some 3s (maybe 12,10,6,5,5,5,4,4,4,3,3,3). What do you think my bounds are here? What is too small for snakes and too large for strippers? (I assume some "large strippers" jokes will also tally up)
