I have a 16" cannon toonie on a echo cs400 running 3/8 low pro, should I switch to 1/4? I know it involves changing the sprocket etc. Is it worth it?

1/4" is only necessary on a dime tip bar. I wouldn't bother.

Tell me about the toonie... Why would I need one? Is it a hard nose or roller tip?

I currently use dime tips in 8" and 12" plus a 14" quarter tip. Would I benefit from adding a toonie to the stable?

I bought a 20" because it's narrower than a stock bar, so it makes turns faster whens it's in the wood and the tip is smaller, which means less kickback. For shorter bars, I go with quarter tip.

Here's a photo i made for a similar post awhile back with size comparison, on top is a 'Toonie', the Canadian one dollar coin is called a 'Loonie' so that's how it gets the name.
And i agree with Erv
