Obviously it sounds like low, middle and hi, but whether tone or tune is low or high I have no idea. Which shafts?

I always thought tone to be the flex or kick point

I have seen all of them in the column for kick pt on various shafts.  There have been other words also but can frequently discern it by playing the synonym game but can't tell the difference between tune and tone for high and low.  Would have thought the TSG pro shop might at least have more than copy and paste translation but no luck.

Trying to figure out which Roddio shaft Stella or Lunar should go in which UT, I have a U2 and U3.  Would like to put the lower launching shaft in the U3.

The lunar should be the lower lunching shaft (between upper and mid kickpoint) stellar is mid kick
