Having just come back from a trip involving a fair bit of drillingground up, id suggest doing away with the tag line concept. It only seems useful to me ifthe route is at a grade you could climb it without bolts/gear to a belay, then pull the drill up and rap bolt the pitch. Generally if it needs bolts, there's limited options of good pieces to sit on and sort out a tangled tag line, you'll be hanging off one arm. In that case its much easier to already have the drill on your harness, a bolt on a quickdraw so you can drill, hit the bolt in (trubolt) then sit on it before tightening it up. On hard routes it's easiest to top-step in aiders and use small dynabolts that are removable between proper bolts.

Much easier if you can just get to the top of the wall!!
