Brand new for the 2021 season is Bauer’s latest addition to their Vapor stick line, the Bauer Vapor 3X Pro Intermediate Hockey Stick. The Vapor line has been designed around giving players the quickest release possible on their shots, and the 3X Pro is no different. It features key upgrades, making this one of Bauer’s quickest and lightest sticks to date!
Not only is the Vapor 3X Pro Hockey Stick lightweight, weighing in at 410 grams (SR), it is also very durable, largely thanks to the Asymmetrical TeXtreme carbon fiber construction. This TeXtreme material is lighter and more durable than standard carbon fiber. This will allow the 3X Pro to be 10% tougher on impacts over the 2X Pro.
Keeping with the Elite Vapor Performance that the vapor stick line is known for, the 3X Pro will help maintain that feel of a brand-new stick. 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 Pro 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 Pro 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 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 Pro 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 Pro Intermediate Hockey Stick!
