Bauer maintains its focus on puck handling and quick release in the Vapor X600 stick. The X600 features a slight, gradual taper that Bauer refers to as their Low-Kick Technology, which provides surprisingly quick shot releases.
The shaft of the X600 is comprised of uni-directional fibers and features a traditional, proven, fused construction. The Micro Feel II shaft profile has rounded corners and double-concave walls which allow the shaft to fit comfortably into your hands, resulting in easier puck handling and superior control. The X600 is available in a matte or Griptac finish.
The X600 features a PU (Polyurethane) blade core that is wrapped in a Visible Carbon Basket Weave with Premium Carbon Composite (the same kind you would find on a high end bike frame). Additionally, this entire Vapor line includes Bauer's Pure Shot Blade Profile which is that visible expanded throat design that reduces the amount of blade twisting or opening while shooting. The end result is a durable blade with good feel. If you’re looking for a stick with great durability and a quick release, the Vapor X600 from Bauer is one of our top picks.
