Two Piece Stick Question

I've been looking around EVERYWHERE and I still can't seem to find the answer.

1) Will an Intermediate Shaft fit a Senior blade? If not will it fit a Jr.?

2) Will a tapered shaft fit a non tapered blade? And vice versa.

3) Is the Synergy II, Z-Bubble Grip or Ultra Lite tapered?

4) Should I get a tapered or non tapaered shaft and same for the blade?

I believe that the ultra lite is standard, the z-bubble is standard and the synergy II is tapered. Tapered blades must be used with tapered shafts and standard blades with standard shafts.
I think that the tapered blades/shafts are supposed to have a lower kick point. One is not better than the other, just a different feel. Try both and see which one you like best.

What size of blade fits into an intermediate shaft (besides intermediate because they're rare)?

Depends on the maker, some use senior blades. I know Easton intermediate shafts use intermediate blade.

That's not possible...Easton only makes one intermediate blade and its the Synergy II. It's a tapered blade and the intermediate shafts they make are all standard (besides the Synergy II). So I'm hoping they use seniors...
