Some droppers employ the cable’s ferruled end at the base of the dropper. Others employ it at the lever end.
So no, they’re not all the same.
Examples (both of which I own):
One Up Components = ferrule at base of post
BikeYoke = ferrule at lever
As mentioned already, some droppers use the cable head at the lever and some at the dropper. You can use any combination with the help of barrel nut adapters or cable stop crimps. We have a few in our parts for special types of fitment combinations.
All PNW Components droppers use the cable head at the post and our levers have a pinch bolt to secure the other end. If for example you are wanting to use a dropper lever that needs the cable head to attach to the lever you could use a barrel nut on the dropper side like this (this is only is for our internally routed droppers but we have a few others) >> DROPPER POST BARREL NUT REPLACEMENT - PNW Components
There are also other styles of barrel nuts and some mimic the cable head so depending on what lever and dropper combo you have there is always a way to make it work.... with the exception of using the Rock Shox Reverb or AXS, no luck there.
