RE:Single handed Sink tips
I've got a Mastery Steelhead taper cut back 18' and then looped with 15' Rio tips. I'm not using it much these days so if you want to borrow it for a day or two, no problem. Even better yet, you and I still need to get out on the river soon. I like this setup and use it on my 10' 8 weight Scott but can't honestly say it is any better that the others mentioned.
As for the Redington reels, I've got the 11/12 on my 8150 and like it quite a bit. The only complaint I have is that it is too quiet. I don't need the sound of a Hardy but I do like to hear the fish run. Other than that, they are a sweet reel for the price. I haven't had any trouble with mine and I know of 4 others that friends own that have been flawless. If they only had some "click".
