Bauer Vapor X Velocity Grip '16
The Bauer X Velocity sticks are based on the Bauer Vapor X700 sticks with upgrades from the X800 sticks to add performance and durability. In addition, the X Velocity sticks feature an exclusive graphic similar to the X800.
These sticks are available in senior, junior and intermediate and offer the perfect compromise between performance and price. The stick uses a fused two-piece construction to reduce costs and fuses a constructed shaft to the blade to create a one-piece stick. The shaft uses a basket weave carbon composite provide a good puck feel along with balance.
The shaft also features micro feel II dimensions and double concave walls for a better feel on the hands and has an upgraded tac spiral grip for the ultimate in control. Moving down to the blade of the stick, a dual density foam core dampens vibrations for a better feel and is wrapped in an upgraded 12K carbon composite.
The Vapor X Velocity also features a pure shot blade profile to allow for a more accurate shot every time. The X Velocity also has dual flex points allowing the stick to flex in one of two places depending on where your hands are placed for maximum loading and a quick release.
To aid in the process, Bauer utilizes their QRT Technology taper system. QRT Technology is a much more aggressive taper design that is optimized to load and recoil energy in the lower part of the shaft allowing a player to get their shot off faster than ever. Source for Sports exclusive upgrades include a tac spiral grip application, a 12k carbon blade wrap, and an exclusive graphic similar to the Vapor X800.
