Sink Tips

I've enjoyed using my full sink Mastery line in stillwaters and am interested in getting a sink tip for river fishing. I have been considering S.A. 's "Streamer Express" and the "Wet Tip Express".
Is anyone using either of these S.A Lines? I want to purchase a new line for stream fishing and don't quite understand the concept of the Streamer Express. It has an intermediate running line which sounds good for stillwaters or pounding the banks from a moving boat but obviously would not mend very well for nymphing or dead drifting. I love to fish streamers but perhaps my original interest in this line is misplaced and I would be better served by using the Wet Tip Express. Anyone with experience who can offer positive or negative feedback on these lines?

if you are swinging flies in moving water you don't want intermidiate running line. if depth is what you need the im runner is the way to go. the floating line will mend and pick up a lot better.
