The 2017 Bauer Supreme S160 Composite Stick is a great stick for the recreational player wanting to get high velocity out of their shot. The Supreme line sticks are notorious for being well-balanced and providing a powerful shot and this stick is no different. The main enhancement from the first generation S160 stick is the introduction of the Easton inspired Bridge-core blade. That blade is designed to provide great control without sacraficing shot power. If you are looking for a powerful shot without paying top of the line prices, this stick is for you!
