Brand new for the 2021 season is one of Bauer’s latest additions to their Vapor stick line, the Bauer Vapor 3X Intermediate Hockey Stick. The Vapor line has been designed around giving players the quickest release possible on their shots, and the 3X is no different. It features key upgrades, making this one a great entry to the Vapor Stick line!
Bauer is looking to pack in value with performance in the Vapor 3X Hockey Stick. Weighing in at 430 grams (SR), it is the lightest stick at this price point. Along with being lightweight the 3X is also very durable. Thanks to HP Mold construction, the Vapor 3X will be 12% tougher on impacts over the 2X.
Keeping with the Elite Vapor Performance that the vapor stick line is known for, the 3X will push the boundaries of performance at this price point. The HP Mold construction is a molding process that helps the stick to be more streamlined and help release the puck 5% quicker with overall reduced weight and improved recoil speed. This provides players with an unmatched and consistent feel during stickhandling, passing, and shooting.
The Vapor 3X Hockey Stick features an ultra-low kick point thanks to the addition of the XE Taper technology. This taper is narrower and oval shaped. This design helps stabilize the lower portion of the shaft, as well as the blade, during hard wrist shots, helping improve accuracy and control during shooting. This design also reduces the overall weight of the stick.
Moving down to the blade, the Vapor 3X Hockey Stick utilizes Bauer’s MaxBalance blade construction. This blade has been reinforced in the high-wear areas such as the heel giving the blade improved durability. The optimized 15K carbon fiber layout reduces the weight without sacrificing puck feel during stickhandling and shooting.
Improving on their elite vapor performance, along with new key features, the Vapor 3X Stick is a great new entry in the Vapor stick line. If you are a player looking for a low-kick stick that helps you get your shots off the blade as quickly as possible, look no further than the Bauer Vapor 3X Intermediate Hockey Stick!
