    Is it a good idea to have extra versi-tips on hand... I just have the standard set that comes with the line.. is there a more affordable source for these besides buying retail stock.. I know some folks are talented enough to make them, unfortunately I don't put myself in that category

    thanks, Ron

    As in the 15ft Rio tips? Keep a casual eye on the Classifieds.

    Also look at the Scientific Anglers Custom Cut Express Tips. The most recent version is a braided core with the T-xx weight designation in white letters and welded loops on each end. Each kit is 30ft, so two 15ft tips costs $20.
