Full sinking versus sink tip line

For years I've used only floating and full sinking lines (various sink rates), never a sink tip line. I'm about to buy some new flylines and I've started to wonder whether I should consider a sink tip line instead of (or along with) a fulll sinking line. Does anyone have any thoughts on the merits of full sinking lines versus sink tips? Having never used the sink tip lines, I'm curious whether there are any fishing situations where I'd find sink tips more effective than full sinkers.

(I have used interchangeable tips recently on a spey rod, but I'm thinking here of regular sinktip lines without interchangeable tips. The advantage of interchangeable tips is obvious--increased flexibility--but I'm curious about fishing effectiveness, not flexibility, since I find changing spools no harder than changing tips.)
