DW Whip Tip worth it?

So I got a .684 cf boomstick, is a whip tip worth it? I'm guessing it's just looks.

I shot mine all day today and its super light quiet and makes it super accurate with the correct paint match of course. But well worth it if you've got the cash

Are you talking about the entire DW fibur or just the whip tip? I'm talking about the whip tip

im torn between cf tips vs metal tips. yes, theyre lighter and dampen vibration quite a bit for a quieter shot... on the other hand, cause theyre lighter they don't stabilize each shot as well when compared to a metal tip. I notice the tip likes to jump around a bit more when shooting.

My thoughts exactly. Guess i'll see if i find someone at a local field with a tip to compare the regular boomstick tip with it.

aluminum tips will be more quiet. only reason for CF will be weight and appearance.

material does not matter. The ball doesnt care about the tip material. it doesnt even touch it. its 100% for looks

Porting isn't a question of materials. In a properly sized front, the porting will help dispell gasses properly, as well as quiet down the shot. In a huge bored front, porting will help some with sound, but not as much.

CF is lighter than aluminum, as well as different looking. For some reason (harmonics, maybe, not an engineer or R&D guy), CF fronts do seem to be louder when shooting than aluminum.
