A tapered shaft/blade combo will give you all the benefits an OPS will - lower kick point and quicker release.
No, you don't end up with a weaker shot with a tapered shaft/blade. I went from a standard shaft/blade to an OPS and my shot was harder, and more accurate. Seeing how a tapered set up is essentially an OPS...well you do the math.
My tapered set up blows away any standard shaft set up I ever used. That includes what is now Warriors AK27 and Eastons Zbubble shafts, (among others) with various wood, composite, and even Easton's focus flex blades. Which is supposed to duplicate the lower kick point of an OPS.
My advice, if you can get a tapered shaft and blade within your budget, do it.
