Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HAVE MY STICK REPAIRED?
A: Shaft repairs are $59.99, blade repairs are $64.99, and toe or heel touch ups range from $20 to $30, depending on what is required. Ball hockey blade reinforcement is $30.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE MY STICK REPAIRED?
A: Turn around time is about 14 days.
Q: WHERE CAN I GET MY STICK REPAIRED?
Q: WILL MY STICK FEEL DIFFERENT?
A: No. We use the Integral Hockey system to repair sticks. Shaft repairs are hollow, light (approx. 10-15 grams), and 100% carbon fiber. As a result, the flex, balance, and feel of the stick are virtually unaffected. Blade repairs are also 100% carbon fiber, light (approx. 15 grams), and add minimal thickness. The curve is virtually unaffected.
Q: WILL MY STICK GET SHORTER?
A: Yes. Unfortunately, to successfully complete a shaft repair, we need to remove the damaged portion of the shaft. This results in a loss of ¼ to 1 inch. In extreme cases, more can be removed. The vast majority of repairs lose less than an inch in length.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF MY STICK GETS TOO SHORT AFTER A SHAFT REPAIR?
A: We have 6-inch carbon fiber shaft extensions available, which receive a discount when buying a Reload or getting your stick repaired. Howies wood extensions are also available.
Q: WILL THE REPAIR AFFECT THE FLEX OF MY STICK?
A: No. The repair itself does not affect the flex. The stick will, however, get slightly stiffer because a small amount is removed during the repair. Typically, for every inch removed, the shaft will get stiffer by 5 units. For example, if we had to cut out 1 inch of damage from an 85 flex stick, it will feel like 90 flex after the repair. Adding an extension will reverse that and lower the flex number.
Q: IS THERE A WARRANTY ON YOUR SHAFT AND BLADE REPAIRS?
A: The Integral Hockey shaft and blade repairs are guaranteed for LIFE. In the unlikely event that the repair fails, EVER, we will redo it for free!
Q: ARE TOE AND HEEL TOUCH UPS ALSO COVERED BY THE LIFETIME WARRANTY?
A: No, but if you have a problem with one of these repairs, please contact us and we will make it right.
Q: WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR BROKEN STICKS?
A: We only resale high quality sticks. We currently get sticks from high level teams. These are all pro stock sticks. Look for custom ones! To respect the teams' privacy, we do not advertise which specific teams we work with.
Q: WHERE CAN I BUY RELOADED PRO STOCK?
A: Overtime Sports in Barrhaven has a variety of sticks in stock and you can purchase directly from us.
Q: IS THERE A WARRANTY ON RELOADED STICKS?
A: Yes! We offer a 14-day repair warranty on all our reloaded sticks. While we do our best to look over every stick before we repair them, it is possible that some damage is not visible to the naked eye. WE STAND BY OUR PRODUCT! If a reloaded stick breaks within 14 days of purchase, we will repair it for free. Some exceptions apply. See here for full details
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PURCHASED RELOADED STICK BREAKS WITHIN 14 DAYS BUT IS NOT REPAIRABLE?
A: Please contact us in this situation. We handle these on a case-by-case basis.
Q: DO YOU DO DISCOUNTS ON YOUR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES?
A: Follow us on social media to keep up to date with promotions. Please contact us if you have a specific situation, such as a potentially high volume (ex: team sticks).
Q: DO YOU BUY BROKEN STICKS?
A: Sometimes. Please contact us if you are interested in selling broken sticks.
Q: CAN I TRADE IN A BROKEN STICK FOR A DISCOUNT ON A PURCHASE OR REPAIR?

Q: WE HAVE A WEEKEND TOURNAMENT AND NEED SHARPENINGS HALFWAY THROUGH IT. ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR THE TEAM?
A: Yes! We own a portable skate sharpening machine that has the same high quality motors and capabilities of the large benchtop models. As a result, we can attend your team’s tournament to provide skate sharpening. Minimum rate will apply. Travel charges may apply. Facility must be able to accommodate the machine.
