You have parallel and taper tip shafts. Taper tips get smaller in diameter the farther down you go. Parallel are a constant diameter at the bottom.

There’s one step right below the grip (1/2”’) if that means anything

In theory.Older guys like me who grew up playing them always think we can tell the difference but honestly if you do enough fittings you can even fool pros.Most of the players clubs are still the same ironically

Honestly, I don't know the right answer to this question; parallel or taper.  But what is wrong with the question/observation?  If somebody had an answer or a meaningful observation on the subject, I'd like to know.

Where do the critics step off, deciding what is a worthy question on something like this?  It is a simple, basic clubbuilding question.  (And if anybody wanted to change the forum location, that's fine by me.)  But I remember when the GolfWRX crowd were rightly curious about why Tiger (and Goosen, and Els) were putting lead tape on their driver shafts above the hosel and also just below the grip.  It's actually an interesting question.  For people devoted to golf equipment.

Not quite the full picture. Parallel are built from all the same shaft with different tipping with a .370 tip (with the longer parallel tip section like you mention), taper have a .355 tip with specific shafts for each head.

Is there a DG tour issue taper tip? I find it hard to believe that's what he's playing when he has said before they are just tipped a 1/4" or 1/2" (presumably off a taper shaft).

Parallel tip shafts actually play a little softer than taper tip shafts, in the tip section.
