    TQ taper?

    Trying to figure out the difference between a straight taper or the half taper. I would guess the straight would be a bit larger all the way through and the half would be more of a straight cut to the center and then taper out on the top half, is that correct?

    Great question OMS.

    I PROMISE to have much clearer content, including some new images from Derek, on the new site asap.

    I don't want to say I threw in just enough products and information on the site to get by and then kicked it out the door and told it to get a job....because that would not sound professional...

    Thanks for answering Gmcttr.

    Order #128

    It sounds like the half taper would be better. I posted with the question right before I ordered, however, I'm sure you guys were swamped with the new site & orders. Is there any way, I can get mine half tapered?
