Well, I agree with Brian also, up to a point. That being said the original post made no mention of tips nor big flies. The OP was asking about the most suitable line. To me that means the most versatile line, floating line, sinktips, summer, fall, winter, spring, go anywhere, and a general selection of flies.
In my opinion for a newer caster that would be a short head spey line. While I personally slightly favor the Delta multi-tip for my personal fishing I give the WC VersiTip a slight edge at being the all around versatile king because the center section can be removed to make a pretty fair shooting head if one has the desire to use it.
Mac19, The WC tips your getting from SSpey will work quite well for your skagit application.

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
