I have a Windcutter floating 9/10/11 on a 14' 9/10 that I use with 10' airflo polyleaders. Do I need to cut off some of the tip to use with sinking leaders or am I good just attaching the leader directly to the end of the floating line? Thanks for any advice! Also, would not cutting some of the tip off make it more difficult to form good loops on the forward cast? I am a new speycaster and it seems like on the forward cast, the belly of the line is touching down on the water before the loop has straightened itself out. Or maybe it is just poor technique on my part? Thanks!
