Default Czech nymph weight preferrence

I use a sticky back lead, double layered on the hook, to tie my czech nymphs. My question is: what and how do you guys prefer to weight your czech nymphs? I prefer the flat tape as it builds a smoother profile IMO. Although i honestly cant decide between two or three wraps of tape. Just wanted to see what everyone else does.

Regular round lead works for me.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
