Two Piece Stick Question

Are all senior sized shafts and blades universally fitted/socketed?

For example... is there any reason why a Bauer blade wouldn't fit in an Easton shaft?

I'm considering a two-piece as my new secondary stick, but I don't know much about them.

no they are not all universal.

some are tapered some arent

bauer vapor series shafts/blades are tapered, the supreme series are not, though i think the one95 might have a tapered version in the shaft

tapered set ups are supposed to be more like one piece sticks because they offer a low kick point but if you break the shaft/blade you can just replace it

There are two types of each: standard and tapered. As long as the blade and the shaft are the same (either both tapered or both standard), then I believe they should fit, regardless of brand. A tapered set-up will act more like a one-piece stick (lower kickpoint, better performance), so most guys here will probably recommend you go that route.

also sr blades fits int shafts. not all blades will fit perfectly you either have to put tape around it or shave it down a bit sometimes.

I have a one95 shaft with an s15 blade in it, so I assume that would work the other way around.

Any standard blade will fit in any standard shaft. Any tapered blade will fit in any tapered shaft.

I'll tell you ahead of time all companies do not use the same exact measurements for their tapered blade hosels or their standard hosels.

The hockey tape over the end of the hosel end solves thee issues to make it thicker so it fits properly.

Some companies round out their corners of the tenon joint and some leave them square making them hard to fit into a shaft. You can (if it is tight) lightly sand the corners of the end that goes into the shaft so reduce what can grab on the way in or if loose use the tape over the end of the part that inserts into the shaft.

That being the issue it is better to buy the same company components ... a bauer shaft, use a bauer blade etc.

There are videos on Youtube you can scout out about a loose replacement blade fix.

I've heard people have used this method to make it snug. I'll do my best to prevent this by purchasing the right combination that fits perfectly without any later craftsmanship required.

I'll do this only if they have the blades with my kind of curves and lies. Which they propably will, atleast if im not brand picky and go with whatever they've got with the blades and shafts i could use.
