12wt for Tarpon fishing???

a customer want's to fish for Cuba tarpon in may. What line weight fly rod should he bring to Cuba? Is a 10wt o.k. or better a 12wt? The travel agency tells him 12wt but I think it's really hard work to fish a 12wt all day long.
One alternative is a 10 or 12wt Winston Boron IIx the other a rod build on a 10 or 12wt Five Rivers 9' FT Blank. Any opinions?
Thanks for your help.
