I'm looking to buy a multi tip LINE for my Loop rod.

I would like the head to be 40ft-55ft (including tips) and be able to throw sink tips and weighted flies if necessary. Rod is rated for 575 to 700gr... I'm not a dredger so 10' of t-10 max, I sometimes throw short heavier tips to get past top water quickly

Thanks in advance!

What grain weight and length are you looking for and possibly what style of line ??

My go to line on my 14' rod for winter fishing is a Rage, 510g - 570g depending on the fly and river. Line is 31', so a bit over 40' with a 10' tip.

I am a fast touch and go caster, however, which is why I prefer fewer grains in my lines.

The other possibility is a Rio Scandi, about 34-35' in length or so. They will struggle to turn over bigger flies and even t-10 however, unless you are a really good caster.

Thank you for the suggestions!

I am familiar with both of these lines and enjoy casting them both a lot. I guess I am looking for something along these lines, no pun intended, but that is a full line not a running line/ shooting head system.

Cheers!
