Hello Gents,
getting ready for my BC trip at end of month and found that my Nextcast WA 55 6/7 which I want to throw dries with is missing the 15 ft floating tip. I looked on Nextcasts site to order one and they are sold out. If anyone has a spare one to sell it would be great..
Thanks
Jim

I purchased a Rio floater for my line, and it was a good match.
Yes, in a pinch a 8wt Rio replacement tips, floating or sinking, are a very good match for those lines. The Nextcast floating tips have more of taper but they both work nicely and the Rio ones are in general far easier to find than a nice guy with an extra NC tip. :)

Thanks for the advice, I will try those also. I found a "nice guy" with a extra tip. Shout out to Mark Stosiak.
