No, it's not. I also use it in lakes from my kayak's both casting and trolling. It's just that a 200 - 300 grain shooting head type sink tip will really get down. Because of this on smaller, less flow rivers you will be striping line as it goes down and accross. It is ideal for this. Put it this way if you don't have a Streamer Express yet, I would get one. Everyone who posts likes them. It is specific but you will like it greatly for that. B.T.W. like a shooting head you can cast a country mile with them but, with the handling belly it handles better.

For a regular sink tip you can always just loop on 12' of type 3 or 6 shooting taper material anyways.
