Are they wood or carbon? If carbon depending on the break you can use clear packing tape for a fix. I have a carbon that was broken that I repaired that way and its barely noticable when hung, but you can notice it if your holding it.

If you look close enough in the full view photo. Right where the "A" meets the "S" in Easton you can see its a bit obscure due to the packing tape that was used. Unless your really looking for it, you wont notice it.

it is a composite stick and is that a lecalvier gamer?? i was thinking of maybe puting a small piece of wood in between the pieces.theres the sticks http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370527770062&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=3&campid=5335896190&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dl l%3FViewItem%26item%3D370527770062%26ssPageName%3D STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT) the last photo shows both breaks thanks for the help so far

Looks like they are still intact completly the wood might work. Any thoughts of maybe super gluing the cracks to stabalize them? Mine was cracked and bent so glue was not an option on mine, the tape was the best I could do and it added a little stability to hang.

As for the stick its actually a Jordan Lavalle-Smotherman stick that he used right after being traded from the Chicago Wolves to the Syracuse Crunch.

Wooow that glue idea is genuis i can not believe i did not think of that. Yeah i dont know why i saw lecalvier as soon as I looked at it again i saw that the names didnt look even alike haha but yeah i think im going to try the wood if it doesn't work then glue just because once you go glue theres no going back
