The all yellow tip (not just yellow loop on a brown-grey tip) is a floating line extension. The grey/brown tip with a yellow loop is a type three. Another nice feature, especially if you have a numberf of differnt weight versatip lines, is the marking system on the loops. There are a series of black stripes on the tips indicating the line weight. A wide black band represents 5 and each narrow black line represents 1. So my tip with a thick black line with 3 narrow lines indicates an 8wt, while mine with a thick line and 4 narrows is for my 9wt.Roe_Pig said:What is the ghost tip generally used for ? Is the yellow (floating tip) type 3 ?
