BAUER Senior Vapor 1X 95 Flex Hockey Player Stick
- QRT Taper Technology
- eLASTech Technology
- Lightweight Silver TeXtreme construction

While Supreme and Nexus have had a lot of success in stores and in the pro leagues there was always something a little more stylish about the Vapor lineup, especially in recent years. The 1X pushes the boundaries again with a slick silver and white design with red and black trim that will surely grab your attention. It’s definitely a step away from the dark sticks that seem to be dominating the racks these days.
Now that you’ve been assured it looks good you may be wondering, how this stick going to perform. The answer would be that it’s going to perform and feel a lot like your APX2. Rounded corners and a low kick point to keep it as simple as possible. It’s a very light stick that features a lot of the same key features with the notable difference being QRT Technology.
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. Just like any other Vapor it would be a fine stick to use if you’re a heavier guy who takes a lot of slap shots but the Vapor 1X makes its name from performing in the quick snap and wrist shot situations. QRT Technology helps with these shots specifically. If you’re looking for an even more in depth analysis of the Vapor 1X check out our most recent blog post.
