Being MONO maniac, I happen to have only ONE cartridge, ONE phono set-up as described in my signature. With TWO speakers that is mind you. So I can only be partial on the matter. Admitting never to turn back to anything else on top of it all.
Started collecting as a teen with my bare pocket money, I now have a fair bunch of nice rare or simply good records gathered through the decades of crate digging and master plan engineering on sales and trades to fund my finds.
Mostly vintage 45's they are, I have also a decent amount of LP's and 12" extended singles of the same "rare" American soul music from the sixties and seventies, witnessing the switch from MONO to STEREO.
Late in my music life, I made a giant step in phono gear and got oriented toward what would be my first and last to this day MONO (stereo compatible) cartridge; the DENON DL-102 designed for carefree playback of any MONO and/or STEREO records.
Not bad nor great, this Denon DL-102 is not a "high-end" audiophile contender. Yet it splendously benefits my records as it suits humble me. And it fits my tonearm even more so since the tweaks, conversions and improvement I did both in sounds and esthetics.
Designed in 1962 for carefree air-play of both MONO and STEREO records with enough resilience as essence extraction of any kind of groove, when properly set it yet achieves to retrieve enough details in balance respect.
Continued since, this MC high output with a large 0.7 nude conical diamond on a low-low compliant "sprung" cantilever really enjoys a lot of lateral inertia on an ultra heavy mass tonearm with the tracking set at 3G, it's a classic of the genre
Even though it's the only comparison I have as far as a MONO cartridge goes, I must say that this MONO cartridge instantly favored my MONO records groove ! The large conical diamond must be at stake somewhere to answer your question...
When I play my records, off course I can listen to my gear sound in definition on low volume but, my aim is definitely to play them mindless of such attention to retrieve music out of the groove to only enjoy the music from my records loud and in harmony.
So if the conical tip is not as detailed as some other tip cut, I find it detailed enough for my MONO and STEREO records where it's all to do with music rendition; musically. And for old thick groove retrieval, it's more than good enough fa meh
