Cracked stick

I have an Easton Synergy with a crack along the bottom of the blade about halfway down it. I know it's on it's last leg at this point, but is there anything I can do to it to help make it last a bit longer?

Fill the crack with superglue or an epoxy perhaps.

The superglue or epoxy resin thing mentioned might work BUT honestly looks like it time for a new stick.

I am new to composites but used wood blades for a very long time and basically ... well .... once comporomised there really isn't anything that works other than replacing it. I would assume that the same thing applies to composites though I could be wrong.

I would save my cracked and wounded blades for outdoor ice pickup pond hockey games since there isn't any shooting invloved.

If you're gonna try to glue it back, you should use JB weld. That stuff will probably make your stick stronger than before it broke.

try marine epoxy. I've seen guys fix broken toes(blade) with it. you can find it with fiberglass in it too.

It's honestly not any different then most epoxies. Just in different package and a thicker consistency.

Try the JB weld, but accept that you may need a new stick. Whatever you do, it will be a stopgap.

Actually though, depending on what synergy it is you may be able to turn it into a shaft.

In my honest opinion I wouldn't even want to fix it. From my experiences in this situation even if you do manage do find something that fixes it somewhat, it will still mess up your shot. My advice is fix it, and use it for street hockey.
