    My Easton EQ30 is cracking right at the toe of the blade. I want to at least fill it in with something to try and get some more life out of it. What are you guys using specifically? Epoxy? If so what kind and any specific method that has worked for you? Thanks

    Epoxy is a common material to use

    I've used some golf clubmaking epoxy before. It worked okay for a little while, but ended up splitting again. So, I epoxied it again and now I tape over the toe for some extra protection and bring that stick as my backup.

    I would think just about any epoxy would work. I thought the golf stuff would be good because it stays somewhat flexible even after it has cured, but I don't know if that actually helped at all.

    Well one thing you could do instead is cut the blade off and flip the stick over and put a new blade it that you bought. Wood or Composite.
    Wood=20$
    Composite=70$+
