We just returned from the Let’s Play Hockey Show held in Las Vegas, NV over the weekend. It was a great turn out with huge booths from Easton, CCM/Reebok, and Warrior plus some exciting roller products from new company Alkali Hockey. Lot’s of great new products were displayed and it was great to hear from all the knowledgable products managers about what was the latest and greatest. Be on the lookout for releases and reviews coming your way soon.
Easily one of the most recognizable names in the game today, Alexander Ovechkin has become the go to player when his team needs a goal or a great play to get his team and crowd pumped up. Starting this season Ovechkin will be using a new stick, the Bauer Vapor APX.
The Bauer Vapor APX OVI Edition will feature the actual curve used by Alexander The Gr8. The Ovechkin curve will be referred to as the P08 curve. The P08 curve is as unique as OVI himself. Ovechkin’s curve is a large, open toe curve great for technical puck handling and sniping water bottles.
The Bauer Vapor APX stick is the pinnecle of Bauer’s player inspired research and development. Bauer has taken the foundation of the X60 hockey stick and combined it with exceptional puck feel of the TotalOne stick to create a stick that captures the best of both worlds. The difference between the APX and X60 sticks are the use of high-grade TeXtreme carbon fiber, a monocomp design for true one construction and Intelli-sense shot technology for increased stick versatility.
