Does festool make the new flexible vac hose that is 27mm at both ends like the old style? (Non tapered)

No, all of the new smooth hoses are tapered.

The new smooth hose for the CT-SYS is a straight 27 ..... not tapered.

This one https://www.festoolusa.com/accessory/201665---d-27x3,0m-as-90%C2%B0ct unless it has been changed again. But I don't think so  because the tapered would be hard to fit into the CT-SYS.

Note is is a half meter shorter than the standard hoses that come with the CTs. And it has the 90 degree elbow instead of the straight connector on the vac end. But it could still be connected with the 90 or swapped for a straight connector. Depending on if you want it for a Mini / Midi or 26 / 36 / 48.

Thanks a million Seth!  I just bought a 36mm x 7m hose and love it, no way to go back to the old ones.  I use a 3' whip to connect various tools and was wanting to make new whips out of the smooth hose, so I bought one ( I thought) and its the 32\27.  It is a keeper for in the shop and now I will order the one you referenced.
