Nickel-plated flutes?

Recently on flutenet, there was a thread weighing the pros vs cons of student nickel-plated flutes. One thing I didn’t mention in my replies there was that the common practice of flutists these days to upgrade or change the original headjoint to a pro model (often by another brand), in *most* cases means a silver headjoint – not nickel. Silver head on nickel body? Not a good look, sorry.
