Blade for rollerhockey

I might be playing casual rollerhockey drop-in soon.
Is it necessary to be using the plastic blades? It will be outdoors and the surface will be cement though.

I have a shaft with a "fiberglass hosel" blade on it that I've been using for
ice hockey. But I don't know when's the next time I will be playing on ice again. I just started playing in January, so I'm trying out all types of hockey.

I was wondering should I just continue using the same blade, or maybe get a replacement blade and swap it? Reason why I don't consider buying a new cheap stick is that I like the weight of the shaft I'm using.

I've seen some other blades like
http://www.cyclonetaylor.com/players...ecpowersr.html
pretty much plastic

http://www.cyclonetaylor.com/players...ate2100sr.html
looks better (and maybe can be used for ice?)

http://www.cyclonetaylor.com/players...oho2260sr.html
(not sure if this is even good for cement)

The thing is, I don't want my blade to just crack away while it's on cement, but at the same time, I don't really want a full plastic blade knowing I won't be able to use it if i ever decide to maybe join one drop-in (ice) hockey session.

Any recommendations?

Try and find a cheap Koho blade. The use a plastic/fiberglass that doesnt get chewed up by pavement. At Canadian Tire they have a 1 peice Kogo stick for 10.99 with that blade, its perfect for outdoor hockey.

U want a fibreglass bottom blade.....and u want to go cheap as possible.
Plastic blades just dont seem to cut it...even if its outdoors.

If you want a good one, i got a CCM with a Thornton curve if ur a righty....
Only used it once, and thats it. I went back to the other blade i was using.

Im just gonna get rid of it for 15 bucks.

What the hell is a hossel?? ABS are brakes on my car.

Just look at the blade....if the bottom part is fibreglass....there you go. Go cheap as possible.

The stick blade says "Fiberglass Hosel"
I don't know what the hell is a hossel. If I knew a lot about hockey blades, this thread wouldn't exist.

ABS is also a type of plastic. And I can't tell if my stick is fiberglass from just looking at it. I don't know what I'm looking for...

yeah....Stay away from the plastics.

JOFA was what i used to use, and it was awesome. Them and Koho were the first to come out with those fibreglass/wood blades....but JOFA is now all RBK products, and they don't make those anymore. And if u do find em, its not gonna be the best price. If you can find a 1k blade, that could do it, but thats still like 24.99.

Your best bet from brand names will be CCM and Koho.

Buy any ABS/Fibreglass blade if you're playing outdoors. It'll wear evenly unlike wood blades.

I never bought a shaft or replacement blade before, but do any hockey store and sportcheck type stores glue the pieces together when you buy them without extra charge?

Or for example, you buy the shaft from one store, bring it to another store, and buy the blade from there, and you can ask them to do the gluing?

For a service as simple as that....

If they are charging you, they are ripping you off; i'd be leaving the store in a heartbeat.

They'll put it together for you if you buy the shaft or blade. Hell, if you have a glue gun and a heat gun/blow dryer you can do it yourself at home. I bought a blade from Sportchek once and had the guy there pair it up with my TPS Rubber shaft. The sales comes back 15 minutes later (shouldn't even take that long) and the shaft is mounted upside down. I straight out told him it was upside down and he just gave me a confused look. This was at the Lansdowne one back in the day, no wonder it closed down.
