Just beneath the top model (Vapor 1X) in the new Vapor Stick Line, the Vapor X900 Stick is a lightweight, high-performance stick that shares many of the same features. The most notable new feature in the 2015 Vapor Line is the Quick Release Taper (QRT). Bauer slimmed down the lower portion of the shaft to increase the speed of loading and releasing shots. The greatest improvement you'll experience with the QRT when compared to the taper on the previous line of Vapor Sticks from 2013 is the quickness of your release when taking snapshots. Bauer claims that the release is over 25% faster with the QRT.
Another shared feature of the X 900 and 1X is the new Aero Sense II Blde Core. This blade core is designed to improve the durability, feel and responsiveness of the blade. The durability has been improved since the previous version of the Vapor Blade Core by the use of careful and precise stitches which keep the core materials properly positioned within the blade. The stick is primarily constructed with 12K Carbon, which is a very lightweight and durable carbon fiber.
As previously stated, the X900 Stick is also lightweight, coming in at under 450 grams. For this price range, it's one of the lightest sticks available.
