Hello, as a newcomer to the double hand rod, i received sound advise on casting and line for a 5 wt switch rod. (overhead) from the forum. now to enter the spey world, i have purchased a rio scandi short versi 5, on setting up the line i realised the tips have no loop for attatching to the leader. i have searched for an answer but results can be conflicting. a nail knotted piece of monno with a perfection loop seems to be the way. but i am unsure of b/strain or finished length. if anyone can answer this question or offer alternatives i will be pleased to receive them, regards steve.
