S19 Blade Repair?

I've got a little crack on my blade, it's too small to get Stickfixed (wouldn't really be worth it) so I'm looking for suggestions on what I can do to repair it myself.



Tried searching for a guide or something, but no luck.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

use some epoxy to seal the crack

Not too sure what would be best, but I would suggest a layer of wax before taping it. After the wax and before taping, put an extra couple strips over the problem area. That should at least keep most of the moisture out and give it some extra padding.

EDIT: After looking at the picture... Are you talking about the crack all the way through on the bottom of the blade? Or the one about an inch up from the bottom of the blade??? If the one on the bottom is a crack that runs all the way through, then I doubt this stick has much life. Even with the crack that's about an inch up, you're shooting will suffer.

BTW, I can't create threads but I thought of a good idea. I'd appreciate it if someone could start a thread where players can post their height, weight, stick length, and stick flex. I'm toying around with the idea of moving up to about a 100 flex.

Height: 72 inches (6'0")
Weight: 180 lbs
Stick Length: 56 inches (4'8")
Stick Flex: 85 (S19 Getzlaf)

I'm pretty strong for my size but I feel like my shot is lagging, moreso my full wind-up slapshot than my wristshot. I also think my snapshot release may be quicker with a stiffer stick. If someone could create a thread I'd appreciate it.

It's the crack at the bottom of the blade, its only bout half an inch.

^to the other poster, thanks for the suggestion of epoxy that may be the route I'm going to go after looking it up online.
