Sean makes a great point, most anglers overlook the effectiveness of a floater in the surf. Each line has it's place depending on depth of water, speed of current, forage species the fish are on, amount of floating debris, and how you choose to exploit the activity around you.

I believe (as do the vast majority) that the best all-around compromise for all dimensions of striper fishing is the intermediate line but it leaves one wanting for a sinker and a floater when those situations arise.

A compleat approach would be to have all three
