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.
