i just got a Rio Windcutter 8/9/10 spey interchangeable line. i normally use a whipped loop in the ends of my fly lines, and that works good for me. ive had braided loops fail on me. will a whipped loop work for the sink tips or should i consider something else. im just want to make sure i dont screw this line up. thanks, mark

a whipped loop will work, but the interchangeable Rio tips come with nice loops that are not mere braided add on loops. A whipped loop is also much larger and clunkier through the guides. your choice....

but for sure I can tell you that if you've had braided loops fail, its probably because you were using inferior store bought loops. The serious bluewater anglers use braided loops with great success. I build my own according to their specs, and they're strong enough to lift the vat of peanut oil at Doug's Fish Fry
