Right or Left handed driver shafts?

Hello, 

So I am a 57 year old lefty playing with a Callaway Epic Speed driver and a 90 MPH swing speed tops.  I recently decided to change shafts from a 50 gram Project X Hzrdus Smoke IM 50 Gram R flex shaft to the same shaft, but 60 grams.  I found a good deal on these OEM shafts at Callaway pre owned, but they tell me I have to reverse the loft angles because they are "right" handed shafts.  By looking at the tip, how can I identify this if it's right or left handed?

Based on a google search, callaway adapters have underlines on the adapter settings for left handed. You can see the difference in the images on this website:

It’s not the shaft that is right handed or left handed but the adapter. From I remember Callaway outs a RH or LH somewhere on the adapter. I don’t recall seeing them on other shaft manufacturers.

Each OEM has a RH or LH sleeve. It doesn't mean it is not compatible with the head though. Just means the the sleeve lofts/lie are reversed. Often people who want a more fade bias in their sleeve will use the opposite hand in the draw setting making it a fade setting. 
Most will have a LH or RH labelled on them somewhere. I would have to check my LH Epic Driver to see where, but I recall there being a LH on it somewhere...

Edit- I don't see a LH on it, but they are all underlined which isn't the case on a RH sleeve so that must be it!
