Wow. A 14' 9 weight. That is a big stick. Nowadays, most people are learning how to cast Scandinavian or Skagit style because they are the easiest styles of casting. With traditional style lines, you need to learn how to manage more line.

Please read the articles that I mentioned in response to Steak.

Here are a few lines.

BrandModelSizeNotes
RioSkagit600 or 650 GrainCan be bought in a kit with VersiTips

Ard uses a Scientific Anglers Skagit Multitip line. I think that he's played with it. He may have some thoughts on it.

BrandModelSizeNotes
RioAFS8/9Can be purchased as a one piece line or as a shooting head. A running line is necessary if you choose the shooting head version. Must use 15' Versileaders which can be bought separately or in a kit
AirfloScandinavian8/9This is sold as a shooting head, so a running line is necessary. 14' Polyleaders are recommended.
