The earliest FSI kits did indeed have hardwood nose cones they were birch if I recall correctly. FSI listed them as hardwood cones in their catalog for as long as I can remember probably until they went out of business. They did switch to Pine in later years and Pine is technically a softwood. Trees with needles also known as conifers are considered softwood trees with leaves are considered Hardwoods the density of the word varies Balsa is the least dense Hardwood
