The Bauer Vapor X900 Lite is the step down from the Vapor 1X Lite. With QRT Technology, this stick is designed for quick release shots. The thin taper improves recoil speed keeping energy in the lower part of the shaft. The 3K Carbon shaft technology is 10% stronger vs. Basket weave carbon fiber. 3K Carbon means 3,000 strands of carbon fiber are woven together for added durability and performance. Not only is the Vapor X900 Lite going to perform well for you, but it will last. MAX Balance Technology is incorporated into the blade of this stick. This feature means youre going to have reinforced edges and carbon fiber placement to reduce the weight for an improved stick balance without sacrificing durability. This stick is a fused 2-piece construction meaning the shaft and blade are fused together. Within this stick is R3 Resin, which offers elite level durability and works with the carbon fibers to improve energy transfer while shooting.
