Better question would be... where do u intend to catch these trouts. Swinging in a river or stripping on a lake? Cannot think of many situations where I will used sink tips on 5/6wt SH rods on the river (if i do it is maybe 6ft of super light t material or sinking polyleader). Mostly floating tips or sometimes intermediate tips for sub surface presentation.
Almost exclusively use full sink lines on lakes. Using a short sink tip on a floating line in this situation would be an exercise in futility.
