i am wondering what the heck is a skagit line do you make them or are they sold if you make them how would you make one for a tfo 12'6" 8 wt rod thanks again and tight lines brrownie1013 <'}}}}}}>~~~~~<
I believe RIO is setting up to have them available for sale on Monday. Simon mentioned that while he was inundated with people at his signing. If I remember correctly, 27' and 700 something grains??? Someone correct me if I am wrong, please.
Search the archive and you will find plenty on the skagit line and techiniques to make and cast them.
i just noticed what i bought today it is a coil pack of t-14 from rio the guy i talked to told me kevin feenstra ? use this and that was what i needed instead of buying a new line like i did oh buy the way i bought a royal wulff line a tt8 sink tip for salmon now i have two lines thanks for telling me he also told me to put on loop connectors and whip them on whith g tying thread stinking thing even came whith a cutting chart i guess i should save this for if i have to buy more t-14 any ways totaly thanks and good luck and tight lines brownie1013

The new skagit lines by Rio will be 27 foot heads without any sink tip attached. They will be looped for adding tips and have a running line so are full lines. I believe from what I read that the 7/8 is 450 grains and the 8/9 is 550 grains.
You can use your t-14 and cut it into varying head lengths and put loops on them to loop directly to the end of the skagit line. Or you an use any of the pre-made tips available
If you want one now you could try and find a windcutter with tips and take out tip 2 and add your tips directly to the loop. Not sure which WC you would need to give you enough grains once you remove tip 2 to load your rod but likely one of the heaviest they make
