The NEXUS series of sticks is the family in the Bauer stick line-up with a Tru-mid flex profile. If you are a player that is looking for a well-balanced stick with a quick, effortless release with natural power, you should give these a serious look.
The Nexus 8000 is a true one-piece stick which means that through the single molding process, which Bauer refers to as their Monocomp Technology, they can remove excess material all while improving balance and ensuring performance consistency. This is the main reason why this stick is as light as it is. Bauer also uses its exclusive TeXtreme® technology, which is a strong carbon fiber that is 20% lighter than conventional carbon. The eLASTech resin system (reinforcements in the resin that help reduce the spread of micro-fractures) can be found in the senior and intermediate models and helps extend the life of the sticks "pop" while enhancing the overall durability of the stick. The square shaft shape with double-concave walls is preferred among pros, and provides a nice secure grip no matter what shot you are taking. The Nexus 8000 is available in a nice matte finish or with the Griptac finish.
Moving further down the stick, you will find the Nexus Power Taper. Sometimes referred to as the .520 power taper, this means a little more thickness in the hosel of the taper to boost torsional stiffness in order to allow you to maximize the load. Bauer's expanded throat of the Pure Shot Blade Profile also means less torquing and twisting, thus improving accuracy and blade control.
The blade of the Nexus 8000 stick features the Power Sense Core. This energy absorbent core maximizes power and feel for the puck. There is also a lightweight Aero Foam 3 component in the heel that improves balance and core stability. Bauer's SENSE technology is yet another component of the blade core which improves durability, control and shot acceleration. The blade wrap features the same TeXtreme® technology that is used in the shaft and is finished with a light texture to the outer coating. If you are someone who only tapes a portion of the blade, that texture is going to provide an extra bite on the puck.
Natural feel, enhanced durability, and lightweight are what you'll get in this high performance Tru-mid flex Nexus 8000 stick.

as beautifully shooting and feeling as the original nexus. I may be biased because that was my favorite stick ever but this one lived up to my expectations. will be sticking to nexus' for many years to come.Review by adam (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Stick has an unbelievable pop but took me a while to find the snap in the blade since I was so used to the APX2 but once I found it my shot immediately got harder and more accurate! Have had it for a around a month now and am feeling no wear in the stick at all!!Review by The Beaut (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I got the Nexus 8000 when it first came out. I tried using the stick for practice and the mid-kick point was difficult to adjust to after using an APX2. I started to get used to the kick point though and figured out it was better for slapshots than any other shot. Snaps are ok but if you want a stick that can work for slapshots then this is your stick. But after a season I realized that the heel had cracked and split down the edge of the blade. I honestly didn't really like it to much cause im an offensive defenseman but if your a defensive defenseman this is the stick for you.Review by Zach (Posted on 7/24/2016)
