Default OPS to Shaft Conversions

well my warrior dolomite just broke at the heel of my stick and i was wondering is it ok to cut off the blade and put a new blade there? i have seen people do it and i was wondering. I'm going to use that as my backup because i am getting either a Mac Daddy or a one90.

NO. Do not do that. What you do is cut the blade off and flip the stick around. Then put a blade in there. If you somehow do manage to put a blade in that skinny portion which I doubt will be possible, you will never get it out. Flip the stick around.

I agree, but just one question. Since the dolomite is a fused stick, if you heat it, I thought it was possible to pull the blade out? I thought someone on here did it once with their dolomite?

I thought the dolomite came unfused even without heat sometimes? Check other posts

a standard blade if you flip the shaft. BUt if you have a heat gun, Rebar and some time cut a little around the fuse point and heat the sucker up. Than put the rebar in the butt end and bang the rebar on the ground to pop the SL blade out. SL's are a bitch to turn into tapered shafts but it might be worth it. As far as the st goes id do the same as you do the sl

Your missing the point. IF you flip the shaft it will take standard baldes. This will screw up the kick on the shaft. If you cut a little around the fuse point of the shaft you can pull the blade out of the shaft with some effort. Than it would take a taper blade. So there is no sense of sanding down a tapered blade

Default OPS to Shaft Conversions

I'm looking for a OPS and i'm only worried about getting one and breaking the blade and being screwed. I know Synergy's can be cut and fitted with a tapered blade. What other brands/models work in a similar fashion? This might be a useful post for quite a few people.

Well you could just cut the broken blade off of just about any OPS and tape that side to be the new handle, and then put a blade on the old handle side making it the new blade side.

Yeah well that would defeat the purpose of the tapered shaft and really make for a strange stick.

TPS sticks, dolomites, and the mission pulse can all have the blades pulled.

Old Rbk Blue/white 7k's It took a helluva lot more work though, just about any OPS can be cut and fitted with a blade, wether it be flipping it and putting a standard blade in, or by knowing where to cut, a tapered blade......

Ive cut a Synergy ST, 2 RBK Sickicks, 1 RBK 7k Blue/White......Just gotta know WTF your doing....
