What is Parallel Tip section of KBS C Taper Parallel?

I've read elsewhere the parallel tip section of KBS C Taper is 8".  I don't have a micrometer handy, can anyone weigh in?  I'm trying to make a putter shaft as stiff as possible but don't want to tip trim so much that it won't fit on the putter post.  It is an Odyssey O Works 7S , and from everything I've gathered it's a .370 to go over the post.

Couldn't find an actual length for the parallel section on KBS website, but they do list the trimming guide.  Looks like 8.25" can safely be taken off according to them.

Then I checked Golfworks and all they have is the same trimming guide.  Then went to Hireko and they do list a parallel section length and according to them it differs depending on which weight you bought.

Do you know which weight blank you bought?

FWIW since KBS specifically says you can trim 8.25" I don't think the 8" section you mentioned it correct.  KBS also has some pretty good customer service, have you tried calling or emailing them to ask?  

Also yes, the 7s takes a .370 shaft.

Thanks so much!  I got the 8" from Golfworks Q&A section, and I got the 140g X flex so I guess I could gp 8.25" and be safe.  I'm wanting the putter to play somewhere in the 38" range and it's a 43" blank so won't need to go quite that far!

Trying to build a "Tank", since Odyssey doesn't make the 7S in a Tank variant.  I've got some 25g weights to bring the head weight up to 380g and going to put a SS Mid-Slim 2.0 with countercore on it.
