Hi, I need to cut my one50 (composite stick) a few inches and this is the first time I am cutting a composite stick. Is cutting a composite stick is the same as cutting a wood stick? Do you just saw right were you want and dont do anything special right? I know this may seem like a dumb question but I don't have the money of a typical hockey player and I dont want to mess anything up. Thanks

I use a Dremel with an Emery wheel attachment to cut OPS and a mitre saw to cut wood. I put a piece of contrasting color hockey tape around it as a guide to make sure I cut flat. Then some sandpaper if the edge is ragged.
You can use a hacksaw and a vice grip, but I don't have a vice and it was a real pain to do it by hand.
Alternately most hockey stores will do it for a couple bucks.
I've seen this tool used. It's designed for cutting a fork on a bicycle. Works well. You put it in a normal vise and it ensures a straight cut. Not worth the money if you are just doing one stick though IMO.
