Two peice stick help?

I recently got my first composite hockey stick, a Reebok 4K, and the blade is about to break in the middle. I was wondering if it does break, can I cut the remaining part of the blade off and buy a blade for it? Or will i have to get a new stick completly?

Depends on how much of a stickler you are for how your stick feels. I have no problem with doing this and think my stick feels and acts just fine as a converted 2 piece, but other people really don't like it. If you've never done it before, I'd suggest trying it with a really cheap blade just to see if you mind it or not. Then if you like it just fine you can upgrade the blade if you'd like.

those ABS blades will last a long time, it's an excellent investment, much better than an ABS wood stick at a slightly higher price imo

If it's the same 4K that i bought to play inline a year ago, then you're going to run into trouble. The 4k that i cut to replace the blade didn't have a hollow shaft - it had like a foam interior, thus not allowing me to insert a new blade. Maybe and hopefully you have a different design though. Best of luck.

I don't mind a two piece stick at all. I like to be able to mix and match my shaft/blade combination.

I currently have an RBK 11K Sickick III shaft, with an Easton Synergy SE16 blade. The stick put together only weighs 420 grams.
