Until it is flexible enough for reshaping, it is also a bad idea to do this yourself, you should go to a professional.I have never put a stick in boiling water to curve it before. The way I used to do it was to either hold the blade of the stick over the burner on the stove or heat it up with a blow torch. After it is good and hot curve it however you want it. Just don't get caught with too big of a curve or you might end up in the box for 2 minutes.

Boiling a stick will not do much, you need direct heat, on the blade, usually with a propane blow trorch. I simply look for a stick with as much curve as I like and buy it.

Having "too much curve" makes it harder to receive a pass, or to shoot a backhand shot. The puck will just dribble off the end of the blade.

All good points. However they only apply to a wooden blade. You cannot reshape a carbon fiber blade without significantly weakening it or completely ruining it. As said, there are a lot of different curve patterns to choose from these days, so I suggest trying out a few of your buddies' sticks to see what pattern you like, and simply buy it.

correction..........u can curve a full fibre glass hockey stick....i have alot of them and ive dun it before and it makes a sweet curve.....so dont listen to whoever wrote that bull

You can curve the blade of your hockey stick by using a small propane torch and gently heat the blade (without burning it) and using gloves so as not to burn your hands. The fiberglass coating will melt a little allowing you to bend a curve in the blade. After you have the desired curve, put the blade in cool water. The blade should hold the curve. You can straighten the blade the same way. Note: You can get a penalty (and lose the stick) if the blade is too curved. 1/2" is the maximum allowed in the NHL.

Yes you could saw off the blade of a one piece stick and then go to a store and put on a new blade

Yes, you should use curved hockey stick as it makes passing, shooting, and stick handling better. There are two types of curves(right and left) and you should chose the stick which corresponds with the way you shoot. If this is your first hockey stick and you don't know which way you shoot yet, then a stick with a non-curved blade will do short-term.

when the blade of the stick is on the ground cut it where your nose is when you are on skates

The taper is either how thin the blade gets, or the curve of a blade.

The hockey stick is shaved with a blade. no--how do you shape the blade?--how do youn make the toe round and thin?

On the hockey stick, you have the shaft (the part you hold), and the blade (the part that touches the ice). In the blade, you have the Heel, which is the part connected to the shaft. Then you have the toe, which is the tip of the blade, or the end which does not connect to the shaft.

Use a heat gun or stove top (hover the stick a few inches over the burner) to melt the glue. Then pull out the blade.

Regulations say you must tape the stick blade at least the width of the puck. and you should tape the butt end of the stick to have better grip.

the curve from the shaft to the tip of the blade

Curve of the blade...curves forward away from the player...to determine if you are a lefty or righty - hand that's closest to the blade determines this...

Make a knob of balled up tape at the top and wrap the tape around the blade of the stick continuously til the blade is covered to your liking.

I don't believe that an official "replacement blade" is availible. And depending on where you broke it, the reinforcements such as graphite bridges and foam in the tapered zone below the holes make putting a blade in yourself quite difficult. however if you file the foam and such out, you should be able to stick a tapered blade in and save your money! i haven't tried this myself but i am currently going through the process as well. good luck and have fun playing the best game around

For equipment legality purposes it is generally accepted that if you lay your stick down so the forehand (the inside curve) is on the ground a puck should not, or with resistance, pass through between blade and ground.

for pasta to help it to not stick together.

User Avatar

No. The one55 blade is a .620" taper, and the (broken) one70 stick has a .520" taper. A Warrior Dolomite or other tapered blade will fit.

In most situations no it cannot. I would check with who you bought the stick/blade from and ask their opinion.

User Avatar

hard question, but what you do is stick it between your thumbs and blow.

User Avatar

This depends on the flex rating/capability of the stick shaft, the strength of the stick blade and the power of the player shooting the puck.

He uses a Bauer Vapor XXXX Stick, as for his choice of blade pattern I'm not sure

User Avatar

Yes you can ive done it u need a hand held propane torch dont get to close cus u will melt the blade jus enough to the point when the blade starts to move then shape it anyway u want and let it cool off and u should be good .

User Avatar

glue it together and then use a blowtorch

User Avatar

To hide the puck, you can use black tape on the blade.
