Is the the ADV Blade an extra stiff blade? What would be the benefit of going down to a level in stiffness?

 

thanks

Yes, it's the stiffest and lightest blade Bauer makes.

X-Stiff: Bauer’s lightest blade with an extremely stiff foam core. Maximizes the pop of the puck (release speed) off the blade when shooting. Puck control may be more difficult. (ADV)

Stiff: Lightweight, stiff foam core with a thin dampening layer. Gives a quick release with added features to help with puck feel. This core releases the puck quickly rather than maximizing energy into the puck. (FLyLite)

Medium: A lightweight, stiff foam core with a thick dampening layer. #1 Bauer blade in the NHL. For versatile players that like to handle the puck and be able to shoot in any situation. (2N Pro)

Soft: A mid-weight, softer blade core with thin dampening layer. Designed for players that focus on puck feel and stick-handling. Slightly heavier than stiff blades.

X-Soft: Mid-weight, softer blade core designed to hold the puck to the blade to maximize the transfer of energy for harder shots. Contains a pressurized gel that fills cracks to prolong the life of the blade. Slightly heavier than stiff blades. (2S Pro)
