Source for type 2 full sinking lines?

Greetings.

Does anyone know of a line maker that would produce vanilla type 2 (class 2) full sinking spey lines? By vanilla I mean "not multi density."

Like an unconscious answer to a question that has been troubling me for long, or a sudden opportunity to achieve something valuable I had almost given up on, the fish is there.

Try the UK,there's still type 2 sinkers kicking about over here.I think Michael Evans is still on the go-his lines are ace.There's still a goodly number of wet 2's floating about too and you should get mill end lines too
I've a few in the garage that never see the light of day any more.All depends on what weight you want.
Yorkie.

PS,The Michael Evans web site is still viable and all his products are listed, you will find what you are looking for on there.

Thanks a lot. I am looking for these lines in line weights 6 and 9. The AHT9/10FS (3 IPS sink rate) fits the specs of the sturdier rod. Probably on the heavy side @740 grains but since we are dredging, who cares?

I also appreciate others bringing up Steve Godshall.

Steve can build more than just shooting heads.
He has built me some very nice traditional belly lines and even some custom DT's, I'm actually spooling on one of his DT's now on my Olson RP reel

It's discouraging for a sunk line fisherman that there are very few N.American line manufacturers that offer sinking lines. With the exception of Nextcast (when they have stock), line choices are minimal. I would like to see Nextcast offer a WA55 and WA70 in multi density versions and the same goes for the Gaelforce Equalizers. One can only hope that the light may shine I guess

I just found these:

https://www.carron.uk.com/shop/jetst...55-weight-8-9/

https://www.carron.uk.com/shop/jetst...th/weight-8-9/

More like type 3, I assume, but would be with longer heads.
