It all boils down to what 8 weight you own and what you are going to do with the line. If you are going to saltwater fish from a boat, 32' of sinking head is an advantage although in a river enviroment for steelhead, a 32' sinktip is just too long for the vast majority of conditions and situations you will face.


Most fast action 8 weights will have no problem throwing 375 grains of sinktip. In fact, I have been known to cast 400 grain heads on a 7 weight.

So dont chop the line until you in fact try that line on your particular rod unless a shorter head is preferred.
