Making Your Own Custom Sinking Tips and Shooting Heads
To take the best advantage of many freshwater and saltwater fisheries you often need to get your fly deep. This requires a fly line that sinks quickly. Rio makes extremely high density sinking fly lines that comes in a roll, which can be cut to any length that suits your purpose.
These lines come in five different weights: T-8 that weighs 8-grains per foot, T-11 that weighs 11-grains per foot, T-14 that weighs 14-grains per foot, T-17 that weighs 17-grains per foot, and T-20 that weighs 20-grains per foot. Rio T-lines are supple, easy to work with, and do not kink while fishing.  Sink rates were revised for 2012. T-20 sinks more than 10-inches per second, T-17 sinks about 9-10 inches per second. T-14 sinks about 8-9 inches per second. T-11 sinks about 7-8 inches per second. T-8 sinks about 6-7 inches per second.
M.O.W. Tips and  factory made 10' and 15' density compensated Replacement sinking tips and sinking shooting heads can be purchased in many useable weights and densities as well.
The advantage you have using the Rio T-lines are that they cost about half as much and can be cut to any length to be customized for many presentation where the highest density sink rates are needed.
T-8 is designed for single-hand rods 6 through 8 weight and lighter #4-#7 two-hand rods.
T-11 is ideal for single handed rods between #7 and #9 and two-hand rods of #7 to #9.
T-14 is best for single-hand rods from 10 through 12 weight, and double-hand rod with Spey lines #8 and heavier. T-14 works especially well with the Skagit Spey lines 475-grains and heavier. 
T-17 is ideal for single handed rods between #11 and #13 and two handed rods of #8 to #10.
T-17 works especially well with the Skagit Spey lines 575-grains and heavier.
T-20 is ideal for single handed rods between #12 and #16 and two handed rods of #9 to #11. 
T-20 works especially well with the Skagit Spey lines 650-grains and heavier.
Heavier lines not only sink faster, but also retain the energy to turn over larger flies.

Building Loops In Rio T-Line Tips
Starting in the mid- 1960's, tournament casters in the Pacific Northwest revolutionized fly fishing  by introducing the double-haul cast and shooting head fly lines attached to monofilament shooting lines. Suddenly anglers could cast nearly twice as far by building much higher line speeds and by reducing line-friction in the rod guides. Anglers also found that they could change from floating heads to sinking heads quickly by attaching their shooting heads and lines together with loop to loop connections. During the late 1980's American anglers also found that they could change the configuration of their Spey lines by loop to looping various lengths of floating and sinking lines together. Slip-over loops made from braided monofilament became the most popular items for these connections. Where large diameter floating line connections are involved, these braided loops remain the most popular tools to get the job done smoothly.
A popular way to form loops in Rio T-line is to simply fold the end of the line over and nail knot monofilament over it several times. I like 12-pound Maxima for all sizes of T-line loops. Three nail knots add a measure of reliability. Coat the knots with Zap-A-Gap for extra insurance.
