Clear intermediate lines are the prefered for most off the beach fishing. Pick any brand they all have their following. In some situations in really shallow water I like the cortland clear tip . With only 15' of clear intermediate it hangs that little bit higher in the water column. If fishing a deep beach with alot of currant I usually go with my sink tips , heavy as needed to get to the fish but they still allow me to mend as you would in a river situation.
I've been meaning to try the shooting head thing as I think it may be the most versatile option but alas I just never have the time . I think a clear head on a five or six weght would be just the ticket for cutts and small salmon early in the year and on a seven or eight in the fall.
