This is a Bauer Pro Stock goalie stick. The paddle height is comparable to a current Bauer 26″ paddle with a low profile “shoulder.”
The Vapor 1X has a new internal core with a mixture of the Innegra fiber that Bauer is known for. The Innegra is found in the top of the stick down through the paddle where it becomes mixed with a Balsa core that continues down through the blade. The blade is finished off with the Aero Foam III technology, which is the same on the Supreme 1S model.
Finishing off the stick, the control zone has strategic ribs and patterns with a grip to allow the goalie to have the best grip on the stick, but allow for transitional movements in and out of passing. The Griptac formula aids in more grip over time without the use of tape to add weight or to eat away palms. Lastly, the Arch paddle geometry is built into the stick which provides a large and flat front paddle which gives a larger blocking surface and helps keep pucks from bouncing over the paddle.
Sports Etc Performance To Value Rating- 9 out of 10. A well-balanced, lightweight composite goalie stick. Pro Stock stick from Jacob Markstrom of the NHL.
