The Youth 20-Flex Bauer Vapor Prodigy hockey stick offers many high-level features included in the rest of the 2019 Prodigy line, specifically tailored to the needs of youth players.
- QRT technology for a quick release
- UD Carbon Fiber technology for a durable construction
- MaxBalance blade for increased consistency
- AERO FOAM I blade for solid shot pop
Bauer’s 2019 Prodigy sticks are constructed specifically for young players based on flex and performance needs. The Youth 20-Flex model offers youth players the right flex to help improve their shots. With the right flex, developing players can experience the performance benefits of Bauer’s technologies and enjoy their time on the ice as they work on their skills.
A high-end feature included in the Vapor Prodigy is QRT Technology. This taper design, used in the 2019 X2.7 model and in some top Vapor sticks from the previous generation, improves recoil speed by keeping energy in the lower part of the shaft, helping to get the puck off the blade as fast as possible. While Bauer has redesigned their taper construction for the top-end senior Vapor models this year, QRT still proves to be a dynamic technology, especially for this level of play, that will help skaters get their shots off quick.
For the construction, Bauer includes UD Carbon Fiber in both the shaft and blade. This unidirectional carbon fiber, also used in the shaft of the new 2S Team stick, offers a solid balance of durability and playability, giving players a good feel for the puck.
Also included in the blade is MaxBalance technology - a high-end feature used in top Bauer sticks like the Vapor 2X Pro. 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 creates a balanced blade for more consistency when shooting and passing. Inside the blade is Bauer’s AERO FOAM I core, offering solid shot pop and a good puck feel.
Competitive youth players need the right performance features from their hockey stick to maximize their on-ice development. Bauer has specifically designed the Youth 20-Flex Vapor Prodigy stick for these skaters, with plenty of solid technologies included at a great value.
