For the trout switch rods, we chose Rio's InTouch Switch, which at the time of the test, was the only switch line available in a size WF-5-F.   This line is 350 grains and has plenty taper to turn over a heavy indicatory rig, with a large indicator, weight, and two nymphs.  Unlike the Skagit Scout that is designed for swinging, the InTouch Switch has a much longer belly as well as an integrated running line that is just thick enough to mend so you can acheive nearly a 100 foot drift!  Like all switch lines, you do not need to add any running line between the backing and the line, nor do you need to add any tips - simply add a leader and you are ready to nymph.
