Back and better than ever, the 1X returns Summer 2016 with some serious upgrades from its last iteration. The most notable of which comes from Bauer's improved design process where they were able to enhance the durability of the shaft by 30% while also somehow cutting its overall weight. in the process! 

The key to the 1X is in the QRT (Quick Release Taper) Technology. The new, more aggressive, taper design is built to optimized the load and recoil energy in the shaft, allowing players to get their shot off that much faster making it the ultimate in Vapor sticks thus far. Bauer's other elite technologies make their return with the 1X as well, with their improved Aero-sense Core II blade that enhances the sticks performance, playability, and durability by more efficiently absorbing impacts. The improvements to this tech cut weight and improved the balance of the stick in process while also combining with their Pure Shot Blade Profile enhancing the torsional stability of the blade for truer shots and sauce. Their Microfeel II profile Monocomp construction represent the technology in the shaft of the stick. Monocomp technology means Bauer molded the 1X is a single piece, resulting in a more consistent result,  truer profile, better energy transfer, and a more durable shaft as a whole. Micro Feel II refers to the unique rounded corners/double concave wall combo found in the Vapor line, which allows players a more complete grip on the stick providing a better basis for dangles and quick release shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stick Bought this stick about a month ago and it is the best stick I have ever had. I like how it isn't blade heavy and it has this feel that I have never felt with any other sticks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great stick! I've been using this for about 3 months now and this stick is great. I have 60 flex and p88 curve. Playing 8 games and lots of shooting around at home and practicing it has held up very well. The blade is going slightly soft though and I don't know if it will make it for a little while. But over all it is a great stick even though the durability is not to good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible I got 2 of these sicks cause i broke my apx2 and ccm. They are light but the shaft opened up on slap shots and i was using a p92. One broke after just 7 games and the other blade broke after a month. Disappointed, guys who are looking at these your better of with a apx2. Luckily for me i just got 4 Base nastyR. A company that makes custom sticks. Or the reckoner is great too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breaks Easily We purchased 2 of these and both broke within the initial 30 day warranty period. Both of the warranty sticks have now broken within 1 month. So $600 in sticks out the window. It's a sweet stick when it's not broken. My daugther is 5'4, 130 pounds and shoots a 67 flex. These things should not break half way down the shaft after 3 weeks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Stick is good but broke three days later at practice. Had to use my one time warranty on a stick that broke that early. Not happy about that. Otherwise happy
