a tapered setup is a blade and shaft combo that thins toward where the blade and shaft meet. the tenon(the part you stick into the hosel(the hollow part of the shaft that you insert the blade into)) is shorter.

if you were to put a standard blade and tapered blade side by side, the part of the blade that connects to the shaft would be shorter

the point is that you have a lower kick point on the stick thus you can get your shots off quicker with more velocity
