The Bauer Supreme TotalOne NXG GripTac Stick will allow you to take those heavy slapshots without having to worry about the stick snapping. You will no longer have to hold back.The TotalOne NXG features an amplified mid kick, which is engineered to maximize energy output with minimal effort. The lower shaft remains stiff while the middle is much softer, creating an easily loaded stick. The shaft is protected by eLasTech Technology (available in intermediate and senior sticks only), which reduces the spread of micro-fractures caused by regular wear and tear, keeping the new feel much longer. The hosel is constructed using the Supreme Power Shaft taper, which makes the hosel area thicker to better work with the mid shaft amplified kick. This optimizes energy transfer and keeps the blade aligned for the accuracy that you want. The lower stick is also covered with the Tac-Spiral grip---this will give you a better connection with the stick, even during high-stress shooting situations. The GripTac texture will also improve your control of the NXG.The patented Dual-density Blade Core will offer you supreme balance, power and feel on each pass you receive while giving you more confidence when skating with the puck. The blade is constructed with Power Core 3, which also enhances puck feel. Aero Foam, also used in the APX and previous TotalOne sticks, adds stability to the blade, reducing blade deflection and increasing shot accuracy. The stick remains lightweight with strong carbon-fiber construction, known as TeXtreme Technology. This reduces weight without sacrificing the strength of the stick.
