Bauer APX Composite Stick

The revolution continues with the Bauer Vapor APX Composite Stick. From a new blade core that offers more feel with less weight, to a flex profile that changes based on what type of shot you're taking; the Bauer Vapor APX Composite Stick has been tuned to perform.The main improvement in the Vapor APX Stick is the introduction of Bauer's newest blade technology; a technology so unique it was granted a patent by both US and Canadian governments. Through extensive testing, Bauer combined the soft feel of their Power Core 3 technology, found on their Supreme line of composites, with the weight saving blade features found in the Vapor line. The result is a dual-density blade core that offers a perfect balance of feather- weight status while offering true puck feel. Additional blade features include super-strong TexTreme composite construction along with an increased connection point at the blade-shaft transition, which reduces the twisting of the blade while shooting or passing and thus improves control and accuracy. Although the connection point between blade and shaft is enlarged, the overall material at the joint is reduced via Bauer's Monocomp Technology; a single molding process that ensures true one-piece shaft/blade construction and also reduces weight by eliminating excess material found at the transition. The combination of composite material, reinforced blade profile, and weight-saving balance provide excellent accuracy and power.Other advancements include, Bauer's Intelli-Sense shot technology, which utilizes dual flex-zones on the shaft that flex differently based on hand position. This offers a quick release on wrist shots as well as a powerful flex on slap shots. Rounded shaft edges with double concave walls provide hand comfort and stability while a the Vapor Premium Dual Taper improves accuracy by focusing energy lower in the shaft and decreasing torsional deflection. The matte finish feels great and easily allows your hands to move freely without feeling slippery. Eye-catching graphics round out the overall experience.

Bauer Vapor APX Review
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: Expensive
I have only used this stick for one practice but so far this is my all-time favorite stick. I feel that my shots are at least 5-10% faster than before. It is perfect for snapshots and slapshots with the dual kick-points. The stick is really light as well.

The stick is very good but it is a little expensive. The stick is very light and the look is sick! I hope you like the stick too.

Cons: Expensive
The APX is lighter than i'm used to, but it is still very effective. It helped improved my game and it has much more whip than i expected, but ive gotten used to it and i love it. The only problem is that it's pretty expensive. This stick is the best.
