I'm hunting for the right fly line...

Mostly I use a level running line to a T18 or T20 sink tip but yesterday I was fishing for Chinook in a fairly shallow section of river and tried an Ariflo Sniper line - and hated it. Even with a short (5') leader, lifting a 3" Clouser for a cast was a PITA and getting enough weight outside the tip was an even bigger PITA.

What lines should I be considering for a sinking line or an intermediate line for a 9' 9wt rod, a 3" Clouser on a 1/0 hook, with medium size Hareline brass dumbbell eyes, for water about 9 feet deep? I'm stumped...
