Skagit hybrid floating/sink tip

What is the optimum and most elegant way to connect T-14 to a wt. 10 or 11 floating line to make hybrid floating/sink tip, beside loop-to-loop connection or overlapping t-14 with the line, wrapping it and gluing.
Since T-14 has monocore, splicing it with the floating line using commonly know technique would be rather difficult.

Check out how Dave Whitlock does his leader to fly line splice and you will see that it is very easy.
