Hockey shaft blade rattles
 
Just got brand no easton shaft and blade heated the blade melted the glue shoved it in let it dry not the blade rattles alot ive tried 2 blades already and they both rattle what am i doing wrong?

Probably too much glue at the end of the hosel and when it drys it rattles around the shaft.

When i put pressure on the blade and release it i feel it move

How long did you wait before you tested it? Give it at least a 1/2 hour.

Remove the blade and put a few strips of hockey tape over the hosel (take the tape from one end of the blade and wrap it over the wide side hosel to the other side of the blade). Heat the shaft and put the blade back in, that should make it tighter.

Good luck.

I had this happen with an easton typhoon youth stick for my son.

the shaft had a crack in it I just taped it and the rattle went away but we are talking about a 7 year old using it. you loading the stick will split it if it is a crack.

Anyway that is something to check.
Let us know what you figure out.

check the shaft for a crack.
I have not found a trick for installing a blade yet, other than heat the glue then insert it into the shaft.

if the shaft has a crack it won't mater how many blades you use it will still rattle.

Read the post two posts above yours. Do not move the blade after you put it in until it cools completely. You now need to take it out, put a strip of tape over it, add more glue, and try again.

Also, what model shaft and blade are you using? You might be trying to stick a tapered blade in a standard shaft or put the blade in the wrong end if you have a tapered shaft and blade.

We're not psychics, you need to give us a little more information.

The correct technique is to heat the shaft with a heat gun and stick the blade in. The heat causes the shaft to expand and melt the glue on it's own, as it cools it'll compress around the blade causing a solid fit.

im using a Easton Synergy ST Sr. Hockey Shaft & a Easton Synergy ABS Sr. Blade

Yeah that makes scene I did heat the shaft but the glue needed to be heated too. I could not get the blade all the way down without the glue starting soft.

Thanks for the info I'll try it next time.

drping11 03-02-2009 11:34 PM

i heated both shaft and blade

Fairly cheap stuff. More expensive stuff is going to fit much better and more consistently. If there's no defect, it's probalby just a manufacturing inconstancy with the wood hosel of the blade. Throw a piece of tape over the top of the hosel and down the sides, re glue and stick it in. If that's not enough, try a tongue depressor (btw, cut it to the length of the hosel, otherwise it'll rattle inside the shaft).

And wait for it to cool off before you test it, otherwise you'll displace the glue and the fit will be looser. Besides the fact that it'll tighten some as the shaft cools.

Like someone mentioned, it sounds like you are trying to install a tapered blade into a non-tapered hossel. What is the make and name of both shaft and blade?

EDIT: noticed it was answered, the reply above me was spot on

+1 to the recommendations that you throw some tape over the hosel of the blade.

Don't overdo the glue. Think of it more so as lube to help it slide in easier, not to actually hold the blade in place.

bow chika wow wow
