Bauer APX Griptac Composite Stick

The revolution continues with the Bauer Vapor APX GripTac Composite Stick. From a new blade core that offers more feel with less weight to a flex profile that changes based on what type of shot you're taking, the Bauer Vapor APX Composite Stick has been tuned to perform.The main improvement in the Vapor APX Stick is the introduction of Bauer's newest blade technology--a technology so unique, it was granted a patent by both US and Canadian governments. Through extensive testing, Bauer combined the soft feel of their Power Core 3 technology, found on the Supreme line of composites, with the weight-saving blade features found in the Vapor line. The result is a dual-density blade core that offers a perfect balance of feather-weight status while offering true puck feel. Additional blade features include super-strong TeXtreme composite construction along with an increased connection point at the blade-shaft transition, which reduces the twisting of the blade while shooting or passing and thus improves control and accuracy. Although the connection point between blade and shaft is enlarged, the overall material at the joint is reduced via Bauer's Monocomp Technology; a single molding process that ensures true one-piece shaft/blade construction and also reduces weight by eliminating excess material found at the transition. The combination of composite material, reinforced blade profile, and weight-saving balance provide excellent accuracy and power.Other advancements include, Bauer's Intelli-Sense shot technology, which utilizes dual flex-zones on the shaft that flex differently based on hand position. This offers a quick release on wrist shots as well as a powerful flex on slap shots. Rounded shaft edges with double-concave walls provide hand comfort and stability while the Vapor Premium Dual Taper improves accuracy by focusing energy lower in the shaft and decreasing torsional deflection. GripTac coating along the length of the shaft acts as an added layer of control while not being overly sticky. Eye-catching graphics round out the overall experience.,

No it will not score the goal for you. I think it will help your game. I prefer Bauer composite sticks over any other kind of stick.

Just like gasoline, there is always a price increase in top-of-the-line hockey gear. For $250, you will be purchasing stick with some of the best quality around. Vapor sticks, for the last 5-6 years, have been a staple for Bauer and they continue that tradition with the Vapor APX. It has a lot of the characteristics its predecessor, Vapor X:60, had. However, the new blade core technology has helped cut down more weight and has also reinforced it with the TexTreme technology, which you can see in all of Bauer's high-end sticks. Just sprinkle in a little talent, I do not see why it would not produce for you.

The Bauer APX Composite Hockey Stick has a weight of 417 grams. Weights will vary between models due to the addition of the Griptac feature and patterns as some blades are longer than others adding more material.

Stick lengths are somewhat of a personal preference. Depending on how you skate and stick handle can help you determine this. If you are more bent over you may want a shorter stick. if you skate more upright, a longer stick may benefit you more. You play center, so with faceoffs you may want a shorter stick as well for better control close to the ice.
