    OK, so i have one of those one piece sticks, thats really a two piece (like the vast majority of them are). And i DESPISE my blade. So how do you get the origional blade out of the shaft, without flipping it upside down, cause that changes the whole flex areas of the stick. I know where the shaft hits the blade on this stick, so do i saw it there or somewhere else :help:

    Any advice is appreciated.

    it depends on if you are puttin a standard or taper blade if its a standard you should cut till the taper ends so it becomes a basic standard shaft if inserting a tapered you should cut till your blade will fit but you may have to chip out some of the old pieces of blade

    Honestly I have heard of people just heating it up like a shaft and pulling, but i guess that depends on the stick.

    SOME OPSs you can heat up and pull the blade out. As far as I know the only ones that are somewhat easy to do are TPS sticks.

    take your time and try not to overheat, it should come out relatively easy.
