I have the 38' Orvis heads - I think they are silver label. The head's rear taper extends to the first stripping guide.

I used to try to keep a foot or so of running line beyond the tip, but I find it easier to generate line speed when the head is in the blank.

The tick of the loop going through the guides is a small price to pay for the added power.
