Total One OPS Shaft with Warrior Dolomite Tapered Blade, shoots amazing:

Can you provide more details please? Was that a retail or pro stock TotalOne OPS? Where was cut made for the tapered conversion? What's the length of the shaft after the cut? Was the stick cut down on top when it was an OPS?

Thanks in advance.

Why do you need more details? Just make small cuts until it fits..........

My TotalONE OPS still has a lot of life so can't do what you suggested lol. If I know the TO converts to a tapered shaft without losing a lot of length, then I wouldn't waste my money buying a tapered shaft when one comes along.

I tried converting a pro stock ONE95 without success. As an OPS, I took off 1.75" on top. When the blade broke, I had it cut off but a tapered blade wouldn't fit. I cut the shaft bit by bit and stop when the remaining length was 50". Had I continued, the shaft would have been too short for me, tapered or standard. I end up selling the shaft to salvage some value.

Just experiment when it breaks then. Is it pro stock or retail?

This is a Jakub Kindl Pro Stock from the Detroit Red Wings. I feel very dirty using it but I got it for practically nothing.


It was cut right after the "O" in "One" where it reads "Total One"


I would recommend cutting it after the "N" in "One" since I had to use tape on the tenon, however the Warrior Dolomite blade I used seems slimmer than an X:60 wood blade for example.


The Stick shoots amazing

It is. Bauer blades have huge tenons

They are retail TotalONEs.

As I explained earlier...if I know the TOs will convert to a tapered shaft in good length then I wouldn't need to waste my money on buying a taperd shaft now. I tend to stock up on gears I don't really need at the moment.

Thanks hockeysavants

Not exactly, I suppose lol...but I'm going to hold off on picking up any tapered shafts until I cut one of my TOs. I'm really going to refrain myself.

Dude is always selling those shafts for cheap. Good option for anyone who wants to try a tapered shaft

I had no luck trying to convert two CCM Vector V115s (V110 pro stock I believe) to tapered shafts. I can't even put a standard blade on the handle end of the shaft. Both are complete writeoffs!

I think I should start my own OPS to Blade Conversions topic

I saved another blade, this time from a SWD T80. It took me less than 10 minutes.

I'm using it as a lefty stick and so far I'm shooting better with it than all my rightys!

I never really played left and I'm still wondering why I didn't try so before

It's not possible to convert eliptical shafts such as the S14/s17/s19 correct? I have an s14 with a blade ready to break, just wondering if I bother trying to cut it down or just scrap it.

I got my hands on a broken retail TotalONE over the weekend. The broken blade was already cut off when I got the shaft. The cut was made about 1.5" below the "TotalONE" graphic. The previous owner was using a tapered blade but had to apply a strip of tape on the tenon to make a snug fit. So if the cut was made 2.5-3" below "TotalONE", it might have been more ideal.

On a different note, it's probably not a good ideal to flip a TotalONE shaft for a standard blade. The shaft wall on top of the shaft is extremely thin.

I'm gonna have to say that the RS is possible to convert into a shaft, but so effin pointless based on how much you have to cut off

Can this be done with Intermediate sticks as well?

or would the shaft dimensions be too thin even for tapered senior blades?
