Peter--East meets west-My bad assumption-I am generally ignorant of the habits , preferences and practices of landlocked(ie no ocean) and west coast flyfishermen, save for what i glean from reading and from the anecdotes of my friends from Oregon and Indiana who visit and fish with me annually.In light of your observations, I have no doubt that you are correct that vastly more anglers than I would expect, use 8 wts for purposes other than sight casting on flats. But in my defense I did say "probably"find the most use..:).
That said, I wonder if George and James are aware that their testing with bonefish setups is missing a significant audience(read also: potential customers). They read this forum and I am sure will consider your, and other comments here--even if testing with sinking lines winds up sending more traffic to the fly shop with which you're affiliated.
