Plenty of people are using them. Cory has nailed it with the above.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

Tips

There is a short film on YouTube by Simon Gawesworth about these tips. They sound very nice. Also there are three different weights for different grain weight lines.
Only a few places offer a wallet with the tips. It seems that for a full set of six tips the standard price seems $150.00-only some stores include a wallet.

I am a newbie but I have the T-11 set and really like them. They cast great and are great for dialing in the depth you need. Also here on the Oregon coast they have been great so far for being able to fish slots and not getting the line hung up. I think they are well made and fish great but this is my first winter using them so time can only tell. I donít think there will be any issues that will make me not like them though.
Best of luck!

A set of MOW tips in T-8 (light), T-11 (medium), T-14 (heavy) is $149.95 and that includes the wallet.

I'm thinking I'm gonna ask Santa for the medium tips. They might come into pretty good use down here.

As usual Poppy you are right on target--That is why if a angler deals with you he or she does not need to waste time checking around. Simply go to you. Well done again and Thanks.

Stupid Question?

No such thing. In the upper right hand corner click on the "search this forum" window. Plug in MOW.
More often than not, you will find answers using this function. Enjoy.

MOW -
McCune - O'Donnell - Ward - 3 of the best Skagit style steelhead guides around and responsible for helping many many clients and fellow addicts to increase their skills through line/rod innovations and casting instruction.

The MOW tips are an answer to the problem of how to throw short heavy tips with a skagit head without blowing your anchor.

Try casting 5' of t-14 with a 13 foot rod without conciously altering your cast stroke ... can't do it without blowing your anchor - but put on a MOW tip which is 5 feet of floating line and 5 feet of t-14 sink tip and you will not blow your anchor. ... so that is it ... the MOW's are all 10 feet long (other than one 12.5 of solid sink) and has various lengths of sink/float.

There are two full section tips ... floating (so you can skagit that skater if you change up) and sinking 10' and 12.5' The rest are different sections of float/sink combo's - look at the RIO site for details

Loops that rock at both ends - factory made ... AND the floating section matches the mass needed to throw the sinking portion of the line ... not your average level 10 line ... with a great transition section from float to sink.

It would be very difficult to make the same product as well on your own.
They are expensive ... no question ... but if you want a short heavy tip to slip behind the boulders quickly and get down and not sturggle with blowing your anchor ... The MOW tips could be the difference between something dancing on the end of your line and being hung up in a boulder.

I have them in T8 and T11.

Ditto to what others said plus they are fun, really nice in pocket water, amongst boulders. Set up and hold depth well through swing. Very "fishy".

My fav. to date is to use the T8 (lights) on a sweet Flight 375 gr head and 7wt switch to work some small to average sized hot beaded buggers, bunny buggers and smaller leechy tubes near boulders and just off cut banks,ledges.

Tough to match the droop factor with any other, fun to take out for a spin, exceptional in pocket water........makes pocket water fishing with sink tips and shorter two hander a blast, very well made beats "do it yourself".

Specifically, I have come to appreciate tapered skagits and MOW's for a spin through the garden of boulders.....now and again.....fun stuff.
