Default Lines for my Winston Biiix #6

I've been visiting the forum for a while and this is my first post.
I bought a Winston rod almost a year ago. I first bought a Joan Wullf TT line but preferred the Rio Gold since it was easier for me to cast.

I recently bought a Rio sinking tip to match the rod and it's very hard an boring to cast, not just for me, but for another very experienced angler. I bought it to throw some big streamers, 2s and 4s.

Where I live there are no fly shops so I have to buy without testing anything.

Maybe it's that the rod doesn't have the punch to throw big streamers? I tried a Loomis #6 and it worked.
Also looking for an intermediate line.
Winston Biiix 9' 6w

Thanks for your help!

I own the 5wt b3x,sink tip lines do not work very well on this model.My b2mx rods handle sink tips with ease.
