Favorite high-density line for SWFF / Stripers

Well all my hi-D lines are tattered and I am in the market for a 9wt sinking head / intermediate running line no-connection that is durable and casts nicely from shore (all set for boat). The Rio Deep Sea I have lasted so long I have been out of touch with this type of line.

Anything new on the scene? What's your favorite and why?

thanks in advance

I use the Rio DC 26ft intermediate/sinking line. It has welded loops both ends and one roll cast and 'fire' and it shoots like a dream.

I have 350 and 250 for 11 and 9 weights respectively.

The Rio has been extremely durable for me over the past few years. I also have the Cortland QD 325, but the joint at the back taper tends to crack. I wish manufacturers would choose more subtle colors for the running lines.

I've been using a 550 QD 300grain and really like it. The running line is "camo" colored (like cortland 440 camo line).

I like the Albright QD's with a Chartreuse running line and you can't beat the price. Very little hinging.
