Long time user of Bauer supreme sticks, one-pieces for ice, two-pieces for roller. I use a Nexus 1000 for ice now but was exited for the NXG to replace my old total one for roller. Performance is awesome as expected but the tac-spiral grip is so awful it's almost unbearable. It's so promenant that I swear it grinds into your hand by the end of a game. Just an awful feel. I don't know what Bauer was thinking, no one needs grip like that. I'm thinking about trying to file it off.
