The specs for that line called for the tip to be 14' and weigh 97grns. I have one new 8/9 Traditional multi tip left and the floating tip measured 13'6" and weighed 86grns.

So this means I can cut it at 14 and add the RIO tip sinking tip lines or whatever.
In my opinion, yes. I would stay around a 95grn tip.

I hope the line is working out for you. The front taper on that line is gradual, at least 35' long, the line is around 75' total.

If you don't routinely cast sinktips with the full 75' head outside the rod's tip top, my advice would be cut and loop at 20'. It'll turn over tips better w/o noticeably changing how the line feels on the rod.

The story is different if you routinely cast with the entire head outside the rod - then cut at 15' only to avoid removing grains from the line.
