we will need more information about what and where you plan to fish. are you planning to use one line for all situations?

ok so far im planning a trip to rocky point and san diego, but closer to home i live within 20mins or so of to major bass lakes out here in az so i think im gonna mostly use it for that. im just looking for a sink tip line mostly for the trips to mexico and sd im gonna get 10wt floating line for the lakes out here. yes i know the rod is over kill but i picked it up for $75 at a flyfishing yard sale and it was only used once its a tfo profesional series.

With years of use, I found a ten-weight rod to be perfect for winter steelhead, and pretty good for hefty chum salmon. A ten is not for situations where any amount of finesse in presentation is needed; it's for hucking out large, heavy flies for considerable distances. It's at the upper limit of what's comfortable for all-day casting.
I don't know the specifics of what kind of fishing you'll be doing. For steelhead, a 15 foot medium-fast sinktip was the right choice most of the time. Most any WF10F made for warm-weather fishing should be ok for floating line use.

unless you will be fishing from a boat in mexico, i would recomend a warm water intermediate or warm water floater (hey, you could use it for bass fishing too!).

I have tried the change-a-tips and find they are cumbersome to cast compared to 1-pc lines. Just my opinion.
