555 QD

I noticed a mention of this line on a post below. I have been considering it for an 8 weight, moderate, fast action (similar to RPLXi). Figured I would give it a shot on the flats for Stripes. They seem to offer the line in 15 foot and 30 foot sink tip versions but there is not a lot of info on the heads. other than the info implies the 30 footer is a "saltwater head". Does anyone know if all the grains are in the first 15 feet on the 15 footer or is it backed-up by grains in an intermediate head? And once the head is determined would the preferred choice be a 200 or a 250?
