Good Striper Rod?

I am going to try to get down to the Jersey shore this fall to do some striper fishing.

Wondering what the best starter outfit would be -- length, weight, brand, action, etc. -- for the least amount of money? It's my understanding that the fish during the fall run down there weigh anywhere between 10 and 35 lbs. Although I would prefer to catch fish on the surface, I will most likely stripping clousers or some other weighted fly. Do I need a sinking tip line, or would it be smarter to use those interchangeable sinking tippets?

I will be primarily fishing from the surf and from jetties.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

a 9ft. 9 or 10 wt will work..the most important thing is to get a good reel with a good drag...check out the orvis clearwater 9ft. 9wt. mid flex can throw a 10 wt. they are on sale...I have a brand new redington 9/10 AL with backing for me at the intermediate line will be fine for now, unless you plan to fish the jetty...spent the last 30 yeras on the beach fly fishin...
