I find the A-Tip a bit more limber than the D-Tip. I'm sure that explains why the A-Tip does such a nice job when tip casting.

Remember that rod weight is in the eyes of the maker and not a part of any measureable industry standard. The D-Tip does rebound quickly and, in my veiw, serves to stiffen the rod thereby changing its performance curve.

Hope this helps...
