Leader turn over on a Skagit head with a sinking tip is only marginally relevant to my experience. I Albright 1' of 15# Maxima to the sink tip and then blood knot 2 to 3' of 10# Maxima tippet. The reason for such an "elaborate" arrangement is because when I tried using just 4' of tippet material, my surgeon's knot loop breaks almost every single time instead of the modified Turle knot I attach my fly with. This way if the Turle knot doesn't break, the tippet breaks at the blood knot, so it's a quick fix to add a new tippet and fly.
