What is the general formula for adding a floating tip to the various heads?  both weight of floating head and length.  Thanks for the help.  so

The MOW tips should work fine with them - I have a 200 grain that throws MOW T8 with total ease.

You can get a rough estimate of grains per foot for the various lines and just shoot for a MOW tip with less grains than that

Rick - thanks for the guidance

May I ask what weight/length rod you are throwing this on? I have the same setup, 200 Comando head and a set of light MOW/iMOW tips. I've been trying it on a whole bunch of different rods to see which I like the most.

I purchased an anglers roost blank - 11' for a 2/3 wt and built a little switch rod - a joy to cast

I also like to RIO Trout skagits and am throwing a 250 on an AR 12' 2/3

I like the fact that RIO keeps the same length head independent on grain weight. Never made sense to me why some manufacturers changed lengths as they got heavier

He meant floating tips - yes, the MOW full floating 10 footer works great for surface stuff.
