Bauer Vapor APX2 Hockey Sticks Sr L
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.
