Broken Stick question...

I managed to get my hands on a broken S17 from a Preds game this year and I'm gonna stick a blade in it for my daughter...its broken probably 2/3 of the way down from the handle. What type of blade should I buy? It appears (from a quick look earlier) that a non tapered blade is too fat to stick in there. Any suggestions? Need any more info? Thanks

The S17 has a non-standard taper shape -- it's slightly elliptical. There's nothing you can purchase in a retail store to make it fit.

Damn. She doesnt play very competitively, so do you think if I "shave" down the end of the blade and glue it in it will be ok for light use? (which is all she does). Thanks for the info

I have two broken S17's in my house. The only thing you can do is flip it over and stick a blade in the top of the stick. You then use the non-standard taper shape end as your new top.

I know someone who did this in competitive hockey and seemed alright.

I usually recommend doing this to my friends who use/wear down OPS on our outdoor surface. The flex/kickpoint will be a bit off, but most folks won't be able to tell the difference between that and using a normal standard shaft.
