Those are lighter so I’d probably use graphite seats with SS hoods. My preference would be a Fuji DPSM 24 mm.  PAC bay and Alps are good as well.  What reel are you using? Most reel stands in the 15-40 class will fit a 24mm or 26 seat.

It really does depend on your target fish.

When i put together a    rod  i  follow old addage   some is  good  more is better  too much is  just  right. in the  fishing game  ya  never  know  whats gonna happen so i go  with  the  biggest  seat  that  will look   good,  that i  can  afford. A  aftco  aluminum   slip over  or   stuart  copy of that, file  the inside  with   round   file,   wash  with  alcohol  to make  sure  to get  good  bond and  use a heavy paste   epoxy to mount  it   solidly  and the  forget  any  worries.

If your going aluminum try an Alps. No filing, better threads, lighter weight. Should save you a few bucks too. You should be fine with a fuji graphite too for 40lb and under.

Hey Farmer, I bought a bunch of 5" cork sections And I have them coming out my ears. If you're doing a cork handle on the light rod let me know and I'll send you some. Makes a real nice light wait handle but a bit more work turning and sanding. There not those thin rings so no clamping or anything. Shoot me a PM or email if you're interested. Sheridan
