cutting a midspey

I have rio midspey that I want to hack up and add some fifteen foot tips. Where would the appropriate location be for the cut. I have had conflicting information some say anywhere from fifteen to twenty two feet.

The MidSpey we make is cut at 15' from the tip. This is because there is a middle taper in the line that is 4' long. This middle taper ends around 15' from the tip, though to be completely certain take a micrometer and check to see where the end of this middle taper is. That is the best place to cut as you have the energy from the taper helping to flip over the sink tips you are going to use.

I hope this helps, but feel free to email me directly if I can be of further assistance.

All the best
