Dont you just inject a blade with glue, then to replace it run a hair dryer over it tine it loosens up
Personally, I'd recommend saving the money and grabbing a cheap shaft, that way, it can balance the heavier ABS blade.

All replacements have sufficient glue for insertion into the shaft, no need for anymore. I'd use a heat gun ($10-20) as the above poster mentioned because it's faster than a hair dryer...safer too.

I've been using a plastic blade for a decent length of time now and it works fairly well, it's hard to get a nice curve on it but it gets there over time. You basically go out and by the lightest wood stick you can find (or more durable if you prefer) and just screw the plastic blade to the bottom, it's fairly sturdy. Have seen a lot of problems with sticks that are glued to the composite one piece which also tends to be more expensive and the blade is gonna break unlike the plastic one.
The plastic blades torque way too much for any kind of inline play, save those for gym class.
