Default poly leader vs versi leader

I was wondering for swinging streamers and dead drifting eggs, which sinking leader system would work better: versi leader(s) or poly leaders? I'm also looking to stripo streamers for steelhead as well. I mainly fish the great lakes if that makes any difference. Thanks for your help!

Are you fishing with a single handed rod or a spey/switch?

Versi and Poly are basically the same poly comes from Airflo and Versi comes from RIO. For dead drifting just a plain old 9' mono leader with tippet is fine, for swinging flies the poly/versi's range from a floating to an extra fast sink. Depth and current speed will influance what weight to use.
