The poly leaders are decent, Rio makes a similar product, but I can't remember what its called. The 6-7 ips poly leaders are good. Try adding a conehead as a bullet weight, if you need a little more weight to get you down. Slip the cone onto the tippet, tie the fly to the tippet with a non-slip mono loop, and slide the cone down over the knot so it is resting on the eye of the hook. I generally carry brass and tungston cones in addition to the poly leader to get a fly deeper. Cast slightly up stream and give it a big mend to get tension off of the fly so it will freely sink before the current grabs the line. This will get you down fast for those deep pools.

I got to try out the add on sink tips this past weekend. For all the streamer fishing I do, I think they're the right choice for me. The get my fly down deep fast. The do hinge pretty bad while casting but it is what it is. Hell, I don't cast all that gracefully with anything on the end of my line so it's not all that different.

Try using a Tension Cast aka Belgian Cast for poly leaders:
