sink tips

Mrs Claus got me a 13'6" 8wt rainshadow blank for christmas and I'm anticipating line needs.

I'm thinking a 600gr skagit sounds like the right place to start? but my head is also starting to spin on the whole spey line wt issue.

One other thing I'm wondering is if my "normal" 8wt sink tips will work fine with this rod/line. I'm also thinking a T14 to cut up wouldn't be a bad idea though in addition.

Also my experience with the floating tip on the multi tip lines is that they suck and I got a dedicated floater....does this also apply to spey lines?

thanks for starting to walk me through this new diversion.
