Yes, I've done that too. I agree, a mini lead head or attachable sink tip is more versatile than a standard sink tip line because you can take it off and fish on top without switching spools. I do think a longer belly WF is going to be easier than a standard WF for mending and roll casting, though -- especially if you needed to buy a new line anyway.
