We have two sink tip options for you to choose from, each with its benefits. Our dual density tips come in 5’, 7.5’, 8', 10’, and 12’ lengths. Within each length and grain weight, they come in three different sink rates, which we call Riffle, Run and Bucket: for shallow, medium depth and deep water. The exact sink rates within those three categories will vary based on length and grain weight. So not all Bucket tips are the same across different grain weights, but the three sink rates within each weight is a constant throughout our tips. This means that you can get a deeper-sinking tip or a shallower tip with the same tip grain weight, so you don’t have to change your cast to fish different depths of water. For example, all our 5-foot Micro Tips—the Riffle, Run, and Bucket, all weigh the same, even though there are three different sink rates, or densities.
Our new dual density tips feature 8-foot sections of sink tip with different ratios of floating and sinking sections. For example, we have an 8-foot T-6 series with a full sink, 4-foot float 4-foot sink, and a 6-foot sink 2-foot float. This allows the tips to fish well at all casting angles, sinks quickly to its fishing depth, and allows for more fly depth control overall. Great for fishing structure in rivers or any other concentrated area you want depth quick like boulder gardens and cut banks.
All our tips have the line ID on the rear of the tip (towards head), while all the heads have the line ID on the front of the head (towards tip). This way you are able grab the connection and know which head and tip you have on at the same time. All our heads and tips feature strong welded loops on both ends for easy rigging.
