Modelling a Tail

I was wondering what the best way to do this is, I know it’s basically a cylinder, but how/what is the best way to use at the tip.
Collapse it on the edge of a mirror modifer
Slowly combine verts as you work closer to the end to avoid an 8pole with the previous method
fill in faces using the mirror mod.
Not sure which is the cleanest, or if there’s a better way.

EDIT - played around for a minute, is this a good comprimise?


What you did in the image is a good way to model a tip.

It just feels a little iffy to me, not sure why
