  1. Like new, and I cannot stress that enough. It was only used it a few times in warmups. I bought it to try the P30 pattern. Measures roughly 64" toe to buttend. Asking $100 shipped within North America, Buttendz grip not included.
  2. I saw some older threads that have been archived so I wanted to ask you all again: what's the straightest blade you can get today? Is it still Crosby? I did see Iginla's curve from a few years ago was pretty straight, but those are harder to find retail. I've been using a Bauer PM9 mostly, but is there anything straighter than that?
  3. In the market for a new stick and was looking for any type of review on the new CCM Trigger 2. I know there were some blade/toe issues on last years models. I've watched the youtube "CCM" rep reviews and they all say it has been addressed, but would like some feedback from someone who isn't paid to sell product. Thanks
  4. Has anyone delt with Salessportinggoods.com? Trying to fight out if it's a good site. Thanks
  5. I really need to check Twitter more often. Pretty excited for this one. Also, here's a cool preview video CCM's Stick Category Manager did with Ice Warehouse if you haven't seen it:
  6. I'm a beginner, playing ice hockey once a week now since the end of March 2017. Anyway, I use a Warrior wooden stick which is fine for learning the basics. I recently noticed that composite sticks are much lighter. Would a composite stick provide noticeable benefit to someone like me who has the shooting ability of a bowl of soup? I used to think that it wouldn't, cos I'm learning stick skills, but it struck me that composite sticks are much lighter, so it might help my balance, when skating with/without the puck.
  7. I will be soon purchasing the Bauer Nexus N7000 2015 on clearance for $80, please leave pros, cons with the stick as well as past experiences.
  8. I've heard nothing but great things about the P28 curve and its wrist and snapshot benefits, but one question I have being a strong slapshotting defenseman, is it still a good curve? Like if I took a clapper with the curve, would it still be good or would it lift too high or not contact right?
  9. It's coming. https://twitter.com/WarriorHockey/status/856971329039478784
  10. Hey everyone! It is time for me to buy a new stick and I was thinking of trying something new. I would like to buy something from the Bauer Vapor series. (I was using Reebok ribcor until now) I am deciding between the x800 (2015) and x900 (2016, as it is almost the same price at my LHS as the 2015). The price difference between them is 55 bucks. Is the x900 worth to spend this much more or should I just settle with the x800? Thanks!
  11. Any information on the new True Xcore 9 ACF stick? Understand it will be released in March '17. Currently play with True A6.0 SBP & need replacement. Curious how new Xcore 9 ACF differs from 1st iteration?

    Bauer Vapor APX2

    Background: 31 years old / 5’11 / 215lbs / left-handed Men's div B/C and shinny hockey (former minor league rep team player) On ice ~5 hours a week Previous sticks (2yrs): True Hockey A6.0 (TC2, 85 flex)Bauer Vapor x6.0 (P14, 87 flex)Sherwood T90 (Ryan, 85 flex)Bauer Vapor APX2 (P14, 95 flex)Bauer Nexus 600 (P14, 102 flex) *current*Easton RS (E7, 85 flex) *current*Stick being reviewed: Bauer Vapor APX2 (P14, 95 flex)Blade 9/10 I'm a huge fan of the P14 (Toews) curve, and I actually had a bit of difficulty finding this stick in the P14 in my area. The blade has a slight tactile coating on it. I found that it was super easy to tape, held the tape and that the tape job seemed more durable. The blade itself has pretty good puck feel. When I first started using the stick, it was a bit "pingy" and a bit too reactive for my liking, but I got used to it over time. The entire length of the blade seems fairly responsive. Shots come off any part of the blade with not much issue. The blade itself held up well, and I didn't have any problems. Shaft/Flex 7/10 I went with a 95-flex in this stick, mainly because I wasn't able to find an 87-flex. I found the stick to be a bit stiffer than I'd expect a 95-flex, but not to detriment. The stick kept this flex/stiffness until it snapped, on the shaft. The grip was a bit "grippy" for my liking, but decreased over usage. Stickhandling/receiving passes 9/10 As mentioned in the blade category, the stick felt a bit "pingy" when stickhandling and passing. It was something I had to get used to. The stick is definitely "lively" in your hands. Overall, I felt that my passes were on the money, and my stickhandling was no better nor worse than when using other sticks. Shooting 9/10 When I first got the stick, I struggled a bit with the 95-flex. I found wrist shots a bit hard to get high and on-target. This quickly faded as I got a feel for the stick and the flex-point. The slapshots were great right out of the gate. Shooting remained crisp and lively right until the end. There was no degredation in performance (which may not be fair to say in context of this review as this stick snapped quite fast for me). Weight and balance 10/10 A light and well-balanced stick. Nothing to fault here, only praise. This stick feels amazing in your hands. You can tell they put some extra thought and design into ensuring it was a performer in this category. I don't think I've used a stick that's felt quite this light. Durability 2/10 In my opinion, this is where this stick fell completely flat. I received my True A6.0 for a LTR shortly after getting this stick, so my APX2 was used only as a back-up for the 2-3 months while I used my LTR stick exclusively. I'd say that I maybe used the APX2 for a maximum of 10 hours on ice, it was only taped once, and it showed no signs of abuse, damage, or war-wounds. The stick broke/exploded on the lower shaft during a shot. There was no incident, slash or event leading up to the explosion, it just went. Disappointing indeed when considered with the intangibles below. Intangibles N/A I struggled with where to put this information, because while it doesn't really affect the performance of the stick, people buy grip sticks for a reason. The red graphics (and grip coating over these areas) all over the shaft of this stick started peeling off immediately and continued until every bit of red (and grip over these areas) was gone from the stick, which I found weird. The rep said that there were some production issues with the paint that led to this problem, but that it wasn't a warranty issue because it wasn't structural. I found this fairly unacceptable for a $300 top-of-the-line stick. Conclusion (46/60 = 77%) Maybe I got a defective twig, but the rep didn't agree, and in the end I think there's far better sticks in this price-range. A $300 stick that loses all of its red graphics and blows up after less than 10 hours on the ice is not acceptable, especially from Bauer. In all other areas I felt this stick was a major competitor, but durability is a big factor. This stick fell flat here. Had the stick lasted more than a handful of games, perhaps I would have rated it much better. In the end, this one didn't sit well with me and has led me to explore other brands.
