I have a Airflo Cold Saltwater WF8 Int. sinking line but would like something that sinks a little faster (not a full sink line) what are my options?

What are you using it for. Sink lines come in all types of densities from S3-S9. There are some lines with multi sink rate tips. Surf or bay, a short length of sink tip or polyleader can get you any depth you want.

Any of the lines with integrated  sinking shooting heads would fit the bill

It means someone is too lazy to do a little research.

I have a Rio Striper sink tip that has an intermediate running line and an S6 head. Depending on what type of rod you have, the 250gr or 300gr would work well.

In the surf, I like my entire line to sink beneath the whitewater. I use the Airflo Sniper 40+ in a Type 3 sink rate. Not all lines are offered in a 3 IPS and I like the durability of Airflo lines. The short head allows you to shoot line without much false casting.
