Doug, if you want some strong fine tippet for those tiny flies, try Stroft GTM. They have some very fine diameters, and it's the strongest mono I've found in small diameters. The 7X is very strong, and I've landed some decent fish on the 8X without having to exhaust them. A good drag and side pressure help. I think they even sell 9X! I order mine from Lost Creek Fly shop:
