Ultra Spey Head System By Airflow, Questions

Recommended Posts

Had a friend pick up the above mentioned line (s) for me. But I have a few questions;

 

The Leaders that come in the "wallet" is there a way of telling them apart? I see no marking indicating what they do. I figure the black one are all fully sinking but at what rate?

 

There are some colour coated ends on the lines, does orange connect to orange?

 

There are 2 heads, I assume one is floating and the other sinking, is the by-colour one sinking?

 

 

The box had no information inside, and the web has very little that is helpful at this point.

 

I may just have to find a pond and bring a field book to make notes...

 

Any advice is welcomed...

This is the most info I could find:

"In the 9/10wt kit, the floating tip is 15ft long. The 8ips tip is 12 ft and the tips between are 14ft: ie, the faster the sink rate, the shorter the tip."
