Butt End

Postby Zanzi93 Mon Jul 02, 2012 9:45 pm

As wondering if anyone could clear up a legal butt end for me? Does it have to have a rubber butt or will tape do as long as the metal is covered?

Also are bottle caps allowed on the bottom of shafts (providing teeth are facing inwards)?

Are international and British rules the same on this?

This is the FIL rules on the issue. 15.4.

The butt-end of the crosse handle must either be solid with no sharp edges or, if hollow, it must have its open end adequately covered with plastic, rubber or tape to prevent injury.

The use of metal caps is prohibited.

just wondering...

Could i put a coin on the end of the stick to cover the hole and then do my tape job on that? or would this count as illegal?

Sometimes it is best not to ask a question!

From my point of view coins, covered by tape are legal as they are no more dangerous, and probably less so that a shaft with no coins but with tape over the metal edges. Other refs may not agree though.

I think if you taped a Loonie (coin) to your stick and covered it like they did in the video no ref would check. If it's visible the ref might/should do something about it. Moral of the story, don't make it visible :wink:
