So i'm looking for a little advice in purchasing Skagit head or some iteration thereof.

I have a 10.5 ft, 7 weight (single handed rod) paired with an 8 wt line. I'd like to add some kind of shooting head to toss heavy weighted nymph rigs. I really don't plan on swinging with this setup, it's just for nymphing -- so it's not just about casting but also the ability to mend line.

All the info i've been able to find online is pretty vague. I think I need to be somewhere in the 350-550 grain region but that's a big grey area. I'm also curious about length, and taper? What is good for nymphing? Do I need to pair this with a tip that will keep me from throwing heavy-handed mends?
