    I have two of them in different weights and have used them in Alaska. Anyone use them in the sound and if so, comments please?

    These lines will perform differently in the Puget sound area then they did in Alaska.
    What weight, taper, and color are the lines??

    I don't remember nor have I written down the actual weights, but I used the heaviest on a 9 wt. rod and the lightest on a 6 wt. rod. The sinking part is brown and the running line is orange on both lines. Please explain what you mean by performing differently.
    I think the Teeny sink tip lines that I have were designed for single handed rods and manufactured in the 80's.

    They will fish just fine in the Sound. Orange/brown in a standard T series (24ft tip) is a T300 and sinks at about 6.5 ips

    +1here. The 'T's' are the only single hander lines that I've found that work well with a 2hander. Actually, they work better than a regular sink tip line.

    Thanks guys, I'm heading your way about the middle of this month and I'll bring the T lines with me.

    Fred, I think one is a T300 and I'm not sure about the heavier line.
