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. Unlike the higher end Nexus 8000, which is a true one-piece stick, the Nexus 7000 uses a more traditional fused construction. Bauer uses premium lightweight 12k woven carbon fiber in the shaft of this stick because it is better at managing stress than 3k woven carbon fiber, which is very often found in high end composite sticks.
