There are many factors to consider when purchasing a new hockey stick. And while many different features will have an impact on your performance, it is important to place an initial focus on kick point. Finding the right kick point for you will help take your shot, and your overall on-ice performance, to the next level. If you’re unsure which kick point suits your game best, or you’re looking for an accurate assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey.
The 2019 Vapor line features low-kick sticks constructed to give you a quick release. Bauer has specifically designed these sticks for the players who most often take quick-motion shots, shoot close to the net, and prefer release speed over pure power. While the 2X Team stick is built with fewer top-end technologies than the Vapor Flylite or 2X Pro, it still includes some high-level features to enhance the low-kick point and improve your shot.
One top-of-the-line feature included in the Vapor 2X Team is the all new XE Taper. Bauer has redesigned this taper using an elliptical geometry which provides more strength in the blade, a softer hosel, and reduced weight by limiting the amount of carbon fiber layers needed in this area. The result is a taper that amplifies the low-kick point construction, giving you the stability, responsiveness, and quick release you’re looking for.
For the 2X Team construction, Bauer uses their High Performance Mold. The HP Mold provides a balanced energy transfer through the entire stick, from shaft to blade, to give you a true one-piece feel, enhancing the overall performance of the stick to improve your shooting, passing, and stick handling. For the shaft construction, Bauer implements Carbon UD and the MicroFeel II shaft dimension, offering a lightweight design and a good overall feel.
The 2X Team stick blade includes some high-level features for lightweight performance. The blade is constructed with MaxBalance technology, also found in the 2X Pro model. MaxBalance strategically layers added carbon fiber in the blade for more strength without weighing down the stick, while also reinforcing the edges for increased durability. And true to its name, this technology provides excellent balance throughout the blade so your shots stay consistently quick. The blade design also features 3K Carbon Fiber and Bauer’s Aero Foam I blade core for added durability and improved control.
The Bauer Vapor 2X Team stick is a lightweight, high-performing option for this price point. While players who skate 2 to 3-plus times per week are encouraged to upgrade to a top-end model if they want to experience the best technologies Bauer has to offer, the Vapor 2X Team stick is built for this level and frequency of play, with all the features you’ll need to take quick shots and improve your game.
