8 weight line recommendations

Hey gang,
not much going on here in this forum. hmm... hopefully I'm not talking to an empty house?

Anyhow, I'm looking for some suggestions. I've recently built up a Sage 896 RPLXi and am now trying to work out my line strategy. I will be using this rod for larger fish duty in Puget Sound.

I figure my first priority is a clear intermediate. Would you recommend an 8 weight or 9 weight for this rod? Also looking for your experience and suggestions with the various brands and models?

In addition to the clear intermediate, what other type of line(s) do you recommend for the arsenal? - fast sink shooting head, floating, and/or multi-head, or multi-tip systems? I'd like to initially limit my aresenal to one reel with two spools.

thanks,
Brian
