Generally ship around .700" to 1.00" Rough Taper
The ultimate shaft, guaranteed straight and smooth surface. Pro-Taper 10" straight, then a gradual taper to the joint end.
#1+ Straight grain, very few run offs and few to no blemishes
#1 Slight curve to the grain and/or slight mineral marks
#2+ Will have grain run offs and/or mineral marks
#2 Will have grain run offs, mineral marks and/or small knots
#3 Will have grain run offs, mineral streaks and bigger/darker knots
*If a large knot shows up in a shaft, it automatically becomes a #3 regardless of the grain straightness.
