Just to Make Sure I Dont Waste a Bunch of Money

This blade is compatible with my S17 correct? The blade on my S17 is broken and I'm looking for a blade I can use to convert it into a two piece.

It depends on if you are able to take the old blade off at the exact point of taper for it to work.

For that I leave it in the capable hands of my local pro shop employees.

I thought s17's had an elliptical shaft by the blade and that you couldnt put another blade in there regardless of where it is since the shaft is oval at that part?

I was led to believe that the elliptical hozel was compatible with a "tapered" replacement blade?

Different. Tapered just means smaller hole, while elliptical is rounded... meaning a normal square tapered blade wont fit.

Edit: I'm not confirming the shape, just if it IS elliptical a normal tapered blade wont fit.

You can't 'that's what she said' yourself...Unless you are a girl, in which case that's just not interesting.

Even better when the stuff won't/can't/isn't supposed to fit!

Some of things people ask us to do are pretty comical actually.

It won't work.

And I personally don't mind if you bring stuff you bought online to my shop. I'll just charge you for the service.

I was going to buy it online because they don't carry tapered blades, and I was going to buy a tapered blade because they told me it would work.

Maybe not, but I sure love making the mental decision to support my local pro shop and them having nothing I need nor the resources to get it to me.

All my purchases are about 3 local shop buys to 1 online buy, and it wouldn't be that way if I could get exactly what I wanted from my local shop without having to bend over backwards to get him to order it.

Not all shops are created equal now.

I cant even imagine what it is like to not be near a decent LHS. Everywhere i have lived in Ontario there has been atleast 6 fantastic LHS within a 1/2 hr of me.

Nothing better then going into a decent LHS for an hour or so.

couldn't you just flip the stick over and insert the blade into the handle part, then cut off the broken blade to whatever point and tape it up to be your new handle and knob?

The stick is probably a tapered shaft though and this would not be a good idea to do that. It would change the whole kickpoint in the shaft as well and be more like a standard shaft at the bottom with a skinny handle end.

I know I would rather just find a way to use a tapered replacement blade like the OP wants to and try to make the thing work as close as possible to when it was not broken.

I'm glad I use a two piece setup for this reason, costs less when you need to replace a blade and the performance is just about the same as a one piece .... more or less.

Some NHL guys today are using 2 piece setups so it isn't cheaping out sacrificing anything. My opinion on the matter anyway as it works for me. then agin I have never purchased a one piece so if I did someday i might freak out and love them more.

Who knows.

Good luck to the OP in getting this to work for him at least.

An S17 has an elliptical taper. The ONLY way to fit a blade in there is to flip it. I would be very surprised if easton didn't plan that. The s19 apparently is rectangular inside and you can put a tapered blade in, but not the S17.

If you want to convert an S17 to a tapered two piece, sorry but you're SOL.

My favorite is when there are like 4 pairs ahead of them, and they come in and start freaking out because their kid is due on the ice in like 5 minutes. Then they plead, then they argue, then they get mad...

I personally havnt done this but i have seen guys turn there R10's into two pieces. They said they had to flip it though. I dont use two-piece sticks and i have never even thought about doing this, would rather just go get a new one. My R10 is about to go, i can feel it, was wondering what you though, you seem very knowledgable about stick mods.

If it is possible was thinking about shoving a Jovanovski blade, have been wanting to try that pattern for a while.
