    Im looking for a blade to buy for my Easton shaft, and i was just wondering what Tapered meant...

    I found a couple blades i liked, but it says they will only fit Non-Tapered Shafts...so just wondered what that meant.

    Also, i have an Easton Typhoon Sr. Shaft, would that mean that any regular SR. blade fits in it?


    Thanks ahead of time

    tapered shafts came out a little while back- they usually fit into the thinner shafts. non tapered is just a fancy way of saying any normal stick blade.


    i personally have never used a tapered shaft- they look like they can snap pretty easily.

    from what I hear, Tapered shafts are supposed to make the stick more like a one piece. One piece sticks are supposed to have a much better shot, so that's what a tapered is supposed to simulate.

    At least that's what I think it is. I'll look it up.

    EDIT:

    So basically, that's what you're getting in a tapered shaft... You're turning your stick into a one piece but with an easier ability to switch blades.
