It seems I'm having issues not so much with actually adding the nose weight as I am with it accepting the changes. It doesn't change the CP or CG position. It just stays the same.

See the file below.

Your shock cord right in the center of the rocket is 1.25lbs. That could screw things up.

I see that...still when I add mass to the nose cone it doesn't change the numbers even after I change the mass of the shock cord.

Use standard 9/16" tubular nylon as your material. The SkyAngle materials values for length of their TN are messed up.

Are the mass/CG over rides for the rocket turned on? Look on the Mass Override tab to see if the override box for the rocket's overall mass & CG values (not the individual parts) is checked.
