    Bauer Vapor Apx

    I had this stick for about a year before it finally snapped but it did good for a tax return gift to myself Body: Type: 5' 7" 250 lbs Stick: RH P88 Kane 87 flex cut down to the 105 flex mark, about 55-54" Recent Sticks: APX, Widow, DT1 Blade: the blade is stiff and has that great sandpaper texture to it. its not a lot but it does help tape stick better and the puck as well., the texture also holds up nice over time and doesnt smooth out. The feel though is average and unlike both Warriors i couldnt tell where the puck was on the blade, I left a lot of pucks behind because I didnt realize they rolled of the edge of my stick 8/10 Shaft/Flex: The shaft has that great small round contour for it and it really helped me get back into hockey and relearn how to stickhandle a little better. Though i outgrew this and wanted a little more shoulder to fill my palms i did enjoy this and it was a good stepping stone. The flex feels stiffer than rating by a little, really stiff compared to the easy loading warriors. 9/10 Stickhandling/receiving passes: stick handling was great and rolling your hand around the shaft was a breeze when you needed to. receiving passes was a little pingy but not too bad, a little wax helped this 9/10 Shooting: Wristers and snap shots were great, right on target and real hard. For me the more i put into the stick the more i got out of it with these shots. the widows and dt1s were a hair harder but its negatable. Slap shots though for me were an atrocity! Only once during warmups did a get a good one. Maybe i was trying too hard as others suggest but I havnt had a problem doing this with other sticks. To me the intelli-sense tech is there but it didnt work for me 7/10 Weight and balance: Weight is great and balance is too. the stick was a pinch shaft heavy before i cut it but post cut it was spot on. 10/10 Durability: Lasted a full year before it snapped which is good seeing how much i used it, It must be that new epoxy their using. the stick never fully lost its pop, it did drop off though but it never fully died. 8/10 Intangibles: matte finish was nice and so is the blade texture. micro shaft feel will be greta for those with small hands or those that love a tiny shaft. Itelli-sense seems great for some but flops for others. 8/10 Conclusion: A great stick but overall not for me. I would much prefer a tiny bigger shaft and just a straight low kick, non of that intelli-sense nonsense. Right now though im cruising with my DT1s and couldnt be happier, it seems like that stick was tailored for me. as another member said the APX is great at a lot of things, but is a master of none. 59/70 = 8.4/10
  2. Bauer APX Pro Size: 14" Time used: Since Sept 2012 Fit: The APX Pro is Bauer's tapered glove in their lineup; while it is more form-fitting than most gloves, it's not a close-to-the-hand fit; there is room in the glove for your hands to move some. I actually prefer this fit foremost. I didn't have any finger tightness or anything of the sort. 10/10 Weight & Mobility: It's a light glove; the internals of the glove is dual-density foam with poly inserts for additional protection, but on the basis alone that it's a tapered glove, there's simply less glove. As stated in the fit, there is still room in the glove for your hands to move. The cuff is a two piece construction with a notch in the middle, and the backhand pad is short and hinged, allowing it to flex freely. I'm pretty particular with my glove in the sense that my optimal preference would have a completely free top hand, however, I'd prefer the bottom hand cuff to be a bit closed. That is personal preference, and is noted. 9/10 Protection: This is where I think the glove has improved from the X:60; the glove does feel more protective in that aspect. It gets the job done compared to similar gloves on the market. However, if you want an absolute bulletproof glove, these aren't it. They are designated Pro for a reason; the regular APX is more robust in that department. 8.5/10 Durability: The outer of the glove is a combination of nylon and cable knit. Since September, no loose stitching and no rips. 10/10 Palm: Since September, no problems with the palm, which is a dual-layered palm. I used Tacki-Macs and Oggie grips with it, which do a better job than tape in that aspect. No loose stitching and no rips. I'd much prefer a single-layer palm, however, and feel it would be understood in the marketplace based on what kind of glove this is. 8.5/10 Ventilation: Not spectacular, but not horrible either. The ThermoMax liner helps keep the hands cool in that regard, however, it is not as if it is a "vented" glove. I never noticed that the glove was too hot or anything of the sort. 9/10 Aesthetics: Graphics are tasteful - my glove is primarily black with yellow ring/pinky finger stripes and yellow binding. The embroidery is a nice touch. 10/10 Overall: Very good glove if you are seeking a light and nimble pair. Thanks goes out to John Davidson, protective product manager at Bauer Hockey for providing me with these. 65/70 - 9.2/10
