There are a few companies that repari broken composite blades and shafts. But I think it's pretty poor quality. They make the blade way heavier and thicker. It's also not very cheap like 50-70$ plus if you have to ship from Tampa... I think your SOL.
It was like 4 years ago I tried it with my stick so maybe it's gotten better.

They do great jobs. Don't know if there will be one near you.

Best bet is to heat it and see if you can pull the blade out. If you can, just slap in another tapered blade and it'll be good as new.

Saw the blade off, flip the stick upside down and put a blade in (what used to be) the top end. Kinda ghetto.

i don't know about the o-stick because of it's construction, but with most one-pieces you can saw through the shaft to the tendon(part that is inserted into the blade) and heat up the epoxy and remove the tendon.

It takes a lot of work and you need to know what you're doing, but it's possible. Most hockey shops won't do it because of the time it takes to get it done.

Like I said though, I'm not to familiar with the O-Stick (my shop does not carry it) so I don't know how well this will work.

so if you use this method with any composite stick, would you need a tapered or non tapered blade to stick in the top end of the stick? thanks

This would probaly be a really bad idea with the O-stick. You'd have holes at the top and it could really mess with the flex. I guess it really is your only option though.

You should be fine with a non-tapered blade.

Well to be honest, we do this here at our proshop. We just cut off the blade, take a wooden blade and shove it into the composite openning. It seems to work. Just make sure that when you saw off the composite blade, that you kind of deburr the inside of the shaft with a rasp.

Good Luck!
