I have seen new airflo tips on ebay that are t-8, t-10 rating and come in 8ft lenghts. Are these just for shooting head and skagit lines or could you put them on a short belly spey line, like a Hardy 55ft head floater? Can someone advise please.

Airflo's custom cut tips sink pretty fast and have the mass required to turn over large flies. Although they were primarily designed to balance with Skagit Heads, you can cast them on more or less any line if you are willing to give up the "finesse" factor. The picture above shows the 2012 range of T-tips, however there are still some of last years lengths (8') & weights (T-15) available.

You might want to consider one of AirFlo's "multi-tips" (pictured below), which are normally delivered with their Spey Multi-Tip lines, but you can get them separately. The tapered tips offer a far more gentle turnover and delicate presentation than the CCT's, and are much easier to cast on standard lines.



If you need any more help, PM or mail me.

These CC tips are for skagit only, if you put 8'-10' on the end of a Mach55 it will be like trying to cast a ball & chain - dont waste your time trying!

Fast sinking poly leaders are what you put on the end of spey lines.
