What makes the Vapor X100 from Bauer such a great stick?
The Vapor series of sticks from Bauer is all about puck handling and quick release shots. The Intelli-Sense Flex Profile can be found throughout the line and offers dual flex zones that offer different performance benefits depending on the placement of your lower hand. The higher flex point delivers powerful slap shots and one-timers, while the lower flex point provides a quick release with accuracy and control enhancements from the Vapor Premium Dual Taper.
Unlike the higher end APX 2, which is a true one-piece stick, the X100 uses a more traditional fused construction. Despite that, it is still one of the lightest sticks in its class. Bauer uses premium lightweight 12k woven carbon fiber in the shaft of the Vapor X100 because it is better at managing stress than 3k woven carbon fiber, which is very often found in high end composite sticks. The Micro Feel II shaft has rounded corners and double-concave walls which allows the shaft to fit comfortably into your hands, resulting in easier puck handling and superior control. The X100 is available with the Griptac finish.
As we transition down the shaft towards the blade, this is where you will find the Vapor Premium Dual Taper. This type of shaft configuration allows for quick releases and decreases bending and twisting of the blade, which results in better puck control and accuracy. Blade control and accuracy are further enhanced by the Pure Shot Blade Profile, which is visible through the expanded throat.
For the core of the X100 blade, Bauer uses a single density and less brittle AERO FOAM 3, which includes durability stitches that create better adhesion between the core and the blade wrap. That wrap is the same premium 12k woven carbon fiber material that can be found in the shaft, but has a nice textured finish to it that will provide a little extra bite on the puck. A protective SENSE layer, similar to that found in the APX 2, is used in the heel to help prevent cracking and further enhance the overall durability of the X100 blade.
A very high performance stick with features and construction that enhance durability, all wrapped in a great look that drafts off the higher end APX 2 model - the Bauer Vapor X100 stick is a winner with excellent value. Check one out today.
