Bauer Vapor APX 2 Hockey Stick

July 23rd, 2013 Chase Comments off

Back in 2011, Bauer released their new line of Vapor sticks that featured the top of the line Vapor APX stick: the successor to the ever so popular Vapor X60. This APX did quite well, especially at the professional level offering the quickest shot release out of the Nexus, Vapor and Supreme stick families. Bauer now looks to further this success with the introduction of the newest Vapor stick line that will showcase the Vapor APX 2 as the flagship model.

Bauer Vapor X60 LE

May 20th, 2010 Tyson No comments

Bauer has just announced the Vapor X60 Limited Edition will be coming out next month…and it looks dope.  They have taken the look of the non-grip version of the X60 stick darkened it a little and added some smoke like blue graphics giving the stick a great look.

The Bauer X:60 LE stick will have the same construction and materials as the standard X60 stick, only difference being graphics and instead of a stick’um coating or traditional gloss smooth coating, Bauer has used a smooth matte finish. Great choice in my opinion.

Check out the site for more info about the stick and its availability.

Bauer Supreme vs Vapor sticks

January 5th, 2010 Tyson No comments

Bauer has developed two solid hockey stick lines that have been experiencing some great success.  The one95 made waves last year with its release, offering explosive power and a great balanced feel. Ovi was even seen putting a couple pucks in the back of the net with one (probably much to his sponsors dismay). This year has brought the new and re-amped Vapor stick, the X:60 offering a great feel, and intelli-sense shot technology.

Bauer has developed two stick lines in attempt to have  at least one stick that will appeal to any player on the ice.  The Supreme stick line is the power line.  The Bauer Supreme stick has a Mid-Low flex point that allows the stick to load up maximum energy on every shot.  Since it does not have as low of a kick point it will not have as quick of a shot release.  It’s shot release though is nothing to sneeze at, I would not characterize it as slow.  Bauer just put their main focus on power with this line. But that does not mean they forgot about everything else. This stick design makes the Supreme line ideal for monster slappers from the point, and explosive one-timers.

The Vapor line was generated with the finesse player in mind.  This stick line is for  players that focuses on puck handling and a quick shot release. Bauer has introduced their micro-feel II shaft dimensions that gives the stick a comfortable feel in your hands.   According to Bauer it helps improve puck handling.  The Vapor stick line excels with wrist and snap shots, offering a lower kick point and quick shot release than that Supreme line.  This year Bauer introduced the Intelli-Sense shot technology, which changes the flex point, based upon your lower hand position.  This works toward making the X60 stick great all over the ice.  So it can still handle slappers and one-timers but a main focus is on the wrist and snap shots.
