I have the 7/8 but have fished all three. The 7/8 works great with an OBS 10 weight (though a 9 works well too), so an OBS 11 should be perfect for the 8/9. I also have one of the earlier prototypes of the Serum line, and it works well too. I believe Beulah has tweaked it considerably since my prototype, however. But really, the OBS lines work perfectly, and I'd think you can track down an OBS 11 weight with an intermediate head pretty easily. Even if not in stock, most RIO dealers should be able to order one for you, or call RIO to ask for direction. And I agree with Jim that you don't need to mess with Skagit heads or the like, as the Outbound casts very naturally with these rods. Good luck -- they are a lot of fun to fish.
