Making a one Piece into a Two Piece

I recently found a stick at an outdoor rink that had a broken blade. The stick is a Bauer Vapor VI. What I'm wondering is how do I know what type of blade goes into it, and how do I know if any blade at all is able to go into...thanks for any advice.

I tried doing this with an old Easton Stealth about a month back. You'd have to cut the shaft at the right point, then chip out the inside until a blade can fit.

It's far more work than it's worth.... I was never actually successful doing it.

Take the shaft to your local hockey shop and ask for suitable blade.

In the past, I would just flip the shaft around and put the blade in the other end. Most non-tapered blades should fit just fine without any modifications. I know that this obviously messed up the stick's flex and kickpoint, but I never really cared.

There's tons of info on IW and MSH
I'm not familiar with that stick, I'm not sure if it would be worth converting it.

If the shaft tapers towards the blade, it will need a tapered blade and those are pricey so I wouldn't bother doing it on that shaft.
You can flip it and insert a regular blade for playing outdoors, the flex point will be off so I wouldn't expect decent performance on shots.
