I'd love to find a OBS 11 or 12 in coldwater intermediate tip or intermediate head. I've even talked to Zach at Rio about them as they used to be in their catalog. No luck so far. The truth is, for surf or beach fishing the standard OB is probably the better bet. My Serum has about a 39' head on it. Rio does do the OB in 11 and 12 weights with the intermediate head. The OBS in that weight would be for muskie fishing in the rivers. The new Rio muskie lines mentioned last week in their press release here are floaters only. I've had far better fortunes in my muskie fishing with intermediate lines except when using flies like the pole dancer.
