With that powerful energy transfer, these lines should to be able to carry a regular 15' tip or 5'-8' of t14. The cut point would be about 25' from line tip from 95' heads and 15' for 75' heads. When cut line + sinking tip is shorter than original line, you may want to drop one rod weight to have a better loading. If you need futher advice, please send me a email at [email protected].
I am also working on some sinking lines for field testing. These lines are various in length and designed to perform single spey on a regular basis.
I just spliced in a loop in my old Nextcast 95 as the running line was pretty beat up,no sweat as they splice easy but mine is just a loop at both ends of the head ,Airflo braid for running line and poly leader for tip's,works great.
Soon I plan on cutting back a 10/11 comp head for some Custom Cut 200 with a Miricle Braid running line as I think it would slay as a winter long line /desperado Thompson line,The Mixer Special.
