An idea which occured to me was to use a strip of clear shin-pad tape along the top and bottom of my stick where all the slashes, hacks, and stick-lifts occur. I found that it prolonged the life of my OPS enormously. It acts kind of like the clear 3M Stone-Chip Guard tape that people have installed on the hoods of their cars.
I replace the tape after a few games. Even after weeks of use, the stick looks brand new under the tape and since you're using clear tape, you don't even notice it on there. The other beauty part about the clear shin-pad tape is that it can be stretched to fit the contours of the stick where the shaft meets the blade.
I've never seen anyone else do this, but every guy I show it to thinks it's pretty darn genius.
