Can this be fixed?
I have 2 sticks that have cracked down the center of the blade (see attached picture). Has anyone else have this happen? It seems repairable with a some resin/hardener, but will it hold up during game situations?

Here the picture mentioned in the previous post:

I would just get a new stick. If it is already weakened like that, it will break pretty soon, so might as well just get a new stick.

Even if you are able to salvage it, the blade is going to feel dead. I would say it's time to move on.

Like others have said, it's pretty much toast. What stick is it btw? I've actually salvaged old one piece sticks by cutting at the fuse point and using a dremel to get the rest of the blade out and then put a tapered blade in. Depending on the shaft, that could be an option. I'm about ready to make another tapered shaft out of an old TPS stick soon.

Anyways there's always options. But if you don't feel like putting in the work, I just recommend getting a new stick.

This is an old Easton EQ50 that I really liked, but it also happened to my Stealth RS. Was hoping I could salvage the two, but it sounds like they're goners :-(
