Making a 1 piece stick into a 2 piece Stick

Do I need to get a tapered blade and do I have to flip the stick? If I flip the stick how does that affect the flex point.

if you cut it above the taper, you wont need a tapered blade, it will also shorten the shaft. if you flip the shaft over, the balance of the stick will be off and the kickpoint will be off

Tapered blade setups are much better for performance, and with the length of tapers, you would nearly be cutting the stick in half.

People who flip a broken stick over and insert a standard blade should be sent out on the ice with helmets strapped to their feet.

i did it with my TPS response and it worked out great. I had to add a 6inch butt end to it but i really don't notice any difference in play and even with the 6inch end piece it's still one of the lightest sticks I've ever had.

a 6 inch butt end probably weighs a little over 100 grams.

Is it possible to do it with a CCM U+ tapered stick? I bought a Pro Stock used by Maxim Lapierre, it's like new except for the blade. It's a bit cracked near the tip. I putted some CrazyGlue on it but I don't know how long it will last.

You could try. The U+ is a monocomp stick, so it's going to be a lot harder. You'll need to saw it off very low at first and figure out what it'll take, and saw off small increments until it can fit a tapered blade. You may have to clean stuff out of inside the shaft, and in the end you may be hosed due to a weired shaft shape or something. But it is worth a shot IMO, especially if you have an old tapered blade lying around you can test it with so you don't have to buy a new one.

Well I think when it will break I'll by a tapered Warrior blade and if it can't fit on my CCM I'll just buy a Warrior shaft. That suck though because this CCM is pure gold, I hope it wont break too fast.

You added weight to the butt-end of the stick, changing it's balance thus making it "feel" lighter.

Let me ask a question since we are sort of on the topic. If people don't notice a drop in performance after cutting an OPS into a 2 piece, why bother with the OPS in the first place?
