Truth be told, an 8wt is light for surf, rips, ocean boat use, etc. But it's fine for the places most cast a fly for stripers. A 9wt would be a better all-around tool. Sometimes you want a 10wt. I tell my better half I need them all!

If this is in your price range you should consider it a damn good option. If it's your first rod for stripers, consider yourself lucky.
