That's not tapered, but something similar anyway.

there are tapered (on the bottom only).

the sticks you wanted (and are similar to the vetrex approach) are quite expensive. I evaluated some of them and it seems there are only available in metal. As these are replacement parts for collectors and hobbiests one of them alone costs $20. As an alternate stick I'm only able to offer the small one which are plastic. the sticks from previous post are limited and I found no supplier.

So it is on my list.... and if I find one i will offer.

Agree.  It does look very good but the price makes it prohibitive.
