I'm probably the odd ball of the group using my own custom spliced MOW tips. My tips have no loop at the end of the T-14. Instead, I strip off a couple inches of coating , exposing the 35lb mono core. Albright or Barrel knot a short (maybe 1.5/2.0 ft) butt section of 25lb mono or flouro to that & tie a loop to the business end of that for a tippet section of 2 or more ft of 12lb flouro. I only fish weighted intruder type flies from T-14 tips. Smaller conventional flies are a whole different ball game.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
