Are there any one-piece sticks upon breaking that still make a good two-piece?

Question is in the title. Are there any sticks that fare better than others after they've broken?

The question in itself sounds funny, but I'm sure you catch my drift

I find most sticks now all have oval or tapered ends which makes it hard to find any kind of blade to put in them. I tend to grab scraped sticks and put ABS blades into the butt-end of them for ball hockey sticks. It flips the kick points on the shaft since your using the butt-end for a blade, but it works for ball hockey.

The Reebok AI9 is a great stick, but I think I like using the shaft more than I liked it in one piece form.

I think all the Bauer sticks should work. They flare out towards the bottom but I've cut an X:60 and I've seen a One95 cut to take tapered blades.

Easton Mako should work...can't say for certain. It's a pain though. RS is a no.

Warrior used to work, but I doubt it with the fused joint.

dont mean to hijack this thread but had a similar question. just snapped my warrior widow and I was wondering if there is any chance of converting it into a 2 piece stick. What type of blade would it take? thanks.

No, just look at the taper...

You'd have to cut it really high to take a tapered blade and higher still for a standard. You could flip it around to insert a standard obviously.

I totally forget what the measurement was and from where.. But I got a warrior dynasty tapered blade in a supreme total one that my friend gave me, after he broke the blade. Two pieces of tape and a little glue over top, heated both up, and they fit very snug, no wobble, or any problems with it at all.
