If I use a 10' poly sink with my 2 hander does this change how I would cast with the 2 hander ? I.E. should I change the amount of over hang ? also if I am swinging how much tippet (nylon/floro)
would I use and how would I start the butt end for a taper ?
I found this which was also a question I had when trying to determine under what conditions I should go from the scandi with a sink versi to a Skagit with a T-tip ?
I was swinging/practice casting the other day in about 700 - 800 cfs in 4' of water with a 1.5 IPS 10' with 4-5' of 3X to #10 bugger and don't think I was getting down deep enough since I only hooked bottom 1-2 times in the shallower end.
I did hook my first on a 2 hander , not much , a 8" chub but its a start I guess ....
Edit: This may be important , this is on a 12' 5 wt. with a 31' 310 gn. steelhead scandi.
I think basically , I am asking what are the limitations of the versi tips and best set up with them ?
I also see Rio has a 7' Light scandi versi , this might be better for the 12 ' rod and less than 10' of water ? Yes , No ?
Would these be for a SH or can they also be used on the Scandi ?
I currently use the Rio stuff since it is listed under spey , helps when you don't have a clue about what you are buying ! I cant go to my local shops b/c at this point , I know more about the 2 hander than they do except for one place over 2 hrs. drive....
