This summer I fished my 13ft Loop greyline with a shootinghead and 10 feet polyleaders. I realy liked the tapered polyleaders(airflo) so in a few weeks I go to the river again and I wanted to use my 15 foot loop rod with a loop quattro tip speyline. Can I use the same lenght polyleaders on a speyline, and in combination with the sinktips?

In my opinion yes. I think they will work very well.

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

You can but I dont see much advantage in using them, the Quattro has 15' tips as it is. Any more than that and you would be better off with a full sinking line which will cast a lot nicer
