The Bauer Vapor APX 2 Hockey Stick is the flagship model in the Bauer Vapor Stick Line. This APX 2 turns back the clock to offer a completely redesigned blade that has a similar construction and feel to the classic X60 stick, and is much improved from the previous APX blade. Setting this stick above the rest, the APX2 utilizes unique features such as the TeXtreme Carbon Fiber, Monocomp construction and eLAStech Technology.

Vapor's signature flex profile is known as the Intelli-Sense Technology. This changing dual kick point system gives players the optimal kick point based on the type of shot they are taking and where their lower hand is located. For quick wrist and snap shots, the APX 2 provides a lightning quick shot release. For big slap shots and one timers, the softened upper handle (where the upper hand is placed) will create a secondary kick point so that the stick can be "bowed" out and really loaded up, resulting in a powerful shot.

The significant change from the previous APX stick to this APX 2 is the complete redesign in the blade. Bauer really focused their research on improving this portion of the stick and it truly shows. The Bauer APX2 stick features the all-new Aero-Sense Blade Core that will have a much more similar feel to the classic X60 rather than the APX. This new single-density blade core is made of a high-grade foam that vastly improves puck feel and puck reception. There is an additional "Sense" layer that wraps the entire blade which also boosts puck feel and puck reception while helping to prevent chipping, cracking and premature blade breakdown.

The outstanding carry-over features from the APX include the eLASTech Technology, TeXtreme Carbon System and the Monocomp Construction process. The eLASTech Technology reinforces the TeXtreme carbon fibers with micro nanotubes, helping to prevent cracks from slashes growing as well as extending the pop life of the stick. The Monocomp Construction process is one of the best in the industry, providing an extremely consistent feel and feel from top to bottom.

Comments: This is the best stick I've owned to date, good durability, action etc. However, I do agree with the comments that this is not a smart stick. But they are wrong in the sense that practically all sticks do the "intellisense" technology that bauer speaks of. Thknk about it, the stick will flex below the bottom hand, lower it goes, the lower the flex POINT will be. However, since the debut of the 1x I would recommend going for that because the taper that they are using will garentee a low kick point, it's just science. Great stick, can't wait to get the 1x.

Comments: Good but not great stick. I switched from the Total One, and though I felt my wrist shot was better with this stick, it wasn't enough for me not to switch back.

It also did not last as long as my Total One stick. I was almost relieved when it broke as then I was done with the stick.

Comments: IW, your customer service is perfect. You deliver next day for "ground shipping" whereas
hockeygiant & hockeymonkey take 7 full business days to come from their warehouses
in Corona or Carlsbad. Ridiculous. Now that that's outta the way...

I'm so disappointed in this stick. But it's just my taste. I used a 75 flex TotalOne prior
which lasted me from its release years ago til now amazingly somehow. Which is crazy
because I typically go thru sticks every 8 weeks or so. My TO was a cannon on roids.
My wrister was almost invisible from the power of it. But my shiny new 77 flex APX2?
practically useless... For me at least. I had heard from friends that the APX2 was the
perfect twig and I should switch but that turned around to bite me. The Intelli-sense flex
points that Bauer markets is such BS; I thought it would be the best of both worlds since
it changes flex points, but in retrospect, I have no idea why I believed in that marketing
hype. There's only one kick point. It's not a smart-stick that can decide what flex to use
and when to use it. Yeah it is excellent for getting the puck up fast and no-windup one
timers aren't bad either, but there's just zero power. I'm not bashing Bauer's products,
because I think the TotalOne is the best stick ever, I'm just bashing their marketing
because of how misleading it is. If you're on the fence about the APX2 or NXG, stick to
the heritage you used before. Or else you're wasting 260 bucks. Hope this helps
someone make the right choice.

If you hold the stick with your left hand at the top of the stick, then you use a (R) handed stick. If you hold the stick with your right hand at the top, then you use a left (L) handed stick. As stick size increases, the length and diameter of the shaft also increase.

The flex of a hockey stick is how stiff the shaft is. Youth sticks are 30-40 flex, Junior sticks are 45-55 flex, Intermediate sticks are 55-75 flex and Senior sticks are 75 - 110 flex.
If you want to look at all brands and/or want to search by general types of curves , then leave "Any Brand" selected. If you know which brand you wish to look at, select it and the following "Curve" tab will display specific brand curves to choose from.
Each curve brings forth different advantages: Toe curves are less common and are good for stick handling and shooting. Mid curves are the most popular and are recommended for beginners, they are good for puck handling, wrist and snap shots. Mid Heel curves are a combination of a mid and heel curves. Heel curves are good for slap shots, one timers, and back handers. 
Choose between grip and non-grip coatings on the shaft. Grip texture allows for a more solid hold on the shaft while the non-grip coating allows the hands to change position more quickly. 
Flex Profile:
Flex Profile
The low-kick flex profile is for the players looking for a quick shot release, ideal for wrist and snap shots. The mid-kick flex profile is for the player who puts a lot of lean into their wrist/slap shots and are looking for a powerful release on their shots. The variable-kick flex profile offers a constant flex profile allowing custom kick points depending on the placement of the player's lower hand. 
Composite sticks are the most popular because they offer the best overall performance. Wood is the traditional material and offers the best puck feel. ABS is used in the blades to add durability for playing on rougher surfaces like concrete and asphalt.
