I've been using a 9/10 S.A. Spey/Salmon on a T&T 1409 for waking drys and swinging wets. With the river cooling down I realize that I'm going to have to get deeper. Any advice on cutting the line for tips or using sinking leaders would be very much appreciated. Thanks Link

I've used these lines quite a bit with tips. They work well cut at 17-feet from the tip. I use both the 8/9 and the 10/11 this way. I'll use 15ft rio #7 or #8 tips on the 8/9 and #9 or a big boy on the 10/11. I also use some 18ft tips I spliced from type IV (Hi-speed Hi-D) SA shooting heads that I like to use.

I've never seen a Mastery Spey Salmon in this line weight. Are you refering to the Spey XLT variety? If you are, disregard the above. The XLTs need to be cut at a longer distance. I think it is about 26-feet. I know that question has been posted and answered here before so a search ought to reveal to correct place to cut the 9/10 XLT.

XLT

If it is an XLT, the cut points are listed on the Board. Search under XLT.

Thanks

Thank you for the advice. I'll cut it at 17 feet and use Rio tips. It is not a XLT. Link
