Default Sink Tip Line for TFO BVK #8

I'm after some advice for a sink tip line to suit my TFO BVK 9' #8 rod.
I have had no experience with sinking/sinking tip lines what so ever.

I think a sinking tip foating line would be the best choice for me.

This for saltwater use and it doesn't need to be too deep.

Grain weights is what I'm ultimately after.

Thanks in advance.

You can fish with anything from 210 to 300 grains depending on your payload. You can choose sink rates from intermediate to type 8 depending on the depth that you want to get your fly to.
