Flipping the stick.

Why is flipping a broken one-piece a last resort? Does it change the flex or kick point?

Yes. It ruins the kick point and can ruin the flex as well. You can completely lose the loading ability of the stick.

You can insert a standard taper blade in the other side of a flipped stick. It does mess with the flex a bit.

this was discussed in another thread, but yea, it will change the kick point and the flex along with many other things. the sticks are desgined to be right side up and are stronger and weaker in certain spots to improve lightness and comfort, if you turn it upside down it will throw everything off. as capt jeff said in the other thread the butt end side is weaker so it is going to be easier to break if you put a blade in it
