New for 2019, Bauer Goalie has released their next iteration in the Vapor stick line with the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Pro Intermediate Goalie Stick. The X2.9 has new features from the previous generation while still making it one of the most technologically advanced sticks on the market.
Starting off towards the bottom of the Bauer Vapor X2.9, the blade is made with an Innegra reinforced outer with an Aero Foam core. Innegra fiber is specifically used to create a lightweight build that is highly durable to withstand the impact of pucks hitting the blade during use. Internally, the Aero Foam core will give off effective rebounds to effectively redirect the pucks safely into corners. Up on the paddle, a carbon composite construction is utilized to give a low weight feel on the stick for quick and effortless stick saves.
Moving up to the shoulder area of the Vapor X2.9, Bauer has implemented a control zone composed of GRIPTAC that helps give the goaltender confident grip on the stick that helps move pucks to the corner when making saves. While it also provides superior grip in the stance, the goaltender can also easily slide their hand up to go for quick poke checks or playing the puck.
Compared to the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Goalie Stick, the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro will feature higher quality construction and materials throughout the build.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for a lightweight and durable composite stick that will feel comfortable throughout use, look no further than the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Intermediate Goalie Stick.
