Add a wooden plug into the end of it and then cut/shave that down to the correct height.

Uhh, some people like em, some don't. I refuse to try one... Seriously, I don't think I could get used to how it forces you to hold the stick.

That looks like one of the stupidest things I've seen, hockey equipment wise.


And yeah, just get a wooden extension, no big deal. Although it'll screw up the flex of your stick.

Unless he really cut it short, any change in flex due to the plug will be insignificant compared at the same length.

It should not change the kick point or anything.

Yep I used a wood plug that added a half inch because not every manufacturer makes the blade hosel length the same.

I found a gaggle of Easton Heatley patterned composite replacement blades and bought all three even though I knew they were about a 1/2 inch longer than the RBK ones I usually buy.

Wood plug solved that easily.

I am an older guy who had been using aluminum shafts for a long time since 1990 maybe before switching to composite shafts last year and this is common to keep a battery of different length wood butt ends lying about in my workshop.

Good call on that guys

How often were you flipping the blades to compensate for the bend in the stick? haha
