Ok thanks.

It's true that a tapered shaft loads faster, allowing you to get a shot off faster. But I find that a standard shaft loads up more. So if your game allows you to get slapshots off, a standard might be preferable.

Ok, i rarely get the chance to load up and slapshot, i take a lot of shots in tight spaces, so maybe a low kick-point would be good for be.

I'm assuming that if you have a low kick-point shaft then you need a low kick-point blade too?
