    i was in a pro shop today and i say the Nike Bauer Vapor V2 Composite stick and i really liked it....I also saw the Vapor XXX which wasnt much more expensive and i was wondering what is the major differences and which stick would you reccomend.

    I'm using a zbubble easton focus flex blade combo at the moment...it has an iginla curve and 100 flex....

    The V2 is a price point stick, which isn't a bad thing. Check out the review from epuck.com.

    Doesn't sound like a bad stick, especially not at that price.

    Other then the price, weight is probably the biggest difference.

    I myself would go with the Vapor XXX. For the price it's a much better stick. That was Bauer's top of the line stick not to long ago.

    the XXX is also not a fused stick it is a true OPS. MUCH better stick than the V2, in my opinion.

    in my opinion the XXX > XXXlite.

    It's much more durable, more balanced, looks better and it costs less!

    that v2 is a piece of ****, go with the XXX. or even an XX is way better than that.

    ****, why aren't more people holding out for the 190?

    I'd say price. Vapor XXX's are pretty cheap these days. That's a lot of stick for under a hundred bucks.

    I'll tell ya. The new stick on the market that's got my attention is the Sher-wood RM19. If not for the $200+ US price tag I would have alreayd bought one.

    Yeah, i'm wanting to try one of the new SWDs out but I'd rather try out a Mission Pulse... but I'm just a poor college student :(

    Who wants to donate to buy me a new OPS?!?! Don't lie, you know you want to!
