Chopping up my new S.A line

Hi All.
I got a new reel from Santa, it came loaded with a Scientific Anglers 10/11 floater. Up to now I have always fished either floaters, intermediates or sinkers, never the three should meet.

Now having listened to your ideas I intend to start choping up this line and fishing sunk tips.

Now bear in mind this line costs $80 in the Uk. What length do I chop off the front ? Buppa ? seems to suggest 17ft in another thread.

What taper should I buy to make the tips, Wf or Dt.

I think WF but I wecome your advice. Scissors to the ready
