the skinny front end of “density compensated tips” is mostly just the neutrally buoyant core with very little tungsten ... no sinky so good. All my tip trims remove the skinny front end. This leaves a more powerful cut end for big fly turnover, and also sinks faster, and usually retains just enough taper (cutting 15’ to 12’) to still have smooth turnover with smaller flies.
