Brand new for the 2019-2020 season is Bauer’s latest addition to their Vapor stick line, with the introduction of the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Senior Ice Hockey Stick. The Vapor line has been designed around giving players the quickest release possible on their shots, and the 2X Pro is no different. It features key upgrades, making this Bauer’s quickest and lightest stick to date!
Not only is the Vapor 2X Pro Hockey Stick incredibly lightweight, it is also very durable largely in thanks to the Asymmetrical TeXtreme carbon fiber construction. This TeXtreme material is lighter and more durable than standard carbon fiber. Furthering the durability is the R2 Resin System on the interior of the stick that further increases durability against impacts and flexing of the stick. This will help maintain that “pop” feel of a brand-new stick.
The Vapor 2X Pro Hockey Stick features an ultra-low kick point thanks to the addition of the brand-new XE Elliptical Taper. Found where the Bauer logo is, this new taper is narrower and oval shaped. This design helps stabilize the lower portion of the shaft, as well as the blade, during hard wrist shots, helping improve accuracy and control during shooting. This design also reduces the overall weight of the stick.
Moving down to the blade, the Vapor 2X Pro Hockey Stick utilizes Bauer’s MaxBalance blade construction. This blade has been reinforced in the high-wear areas such as the heel giving the blade improved durability. The optimized carbon fiber layout reduces the weight without sacrificing puck feel during stickhandling and shooting.
Constructed with Bauer’s tried-and-true features, along with a few new ones, like the introduction of the XE Taper, the Vapor 2X Pro Stick is one of the most elite sticks on the market. If you are a player looking for a low-kick stick that helps you get your shots off the blade as quick as possible, look no further than the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Senior Ice Hockey Stick!
