    Okay, for Christmas I will receive a one-piece stick and a pair of gloves.

    Which one do you suggest me ? For the stick, I am thinking Bauer XX or TPS Response (the red one). As for the gloves, where I'm really not sure, what do you suggest me ?

    The Bauer Vapor line of gloves are my favorite. The XVs and XXs are both great. The XXX gloves are also out now, yet I have not bought them, so I cannot tell you the quality.

    For the stick, the XX is a great choice. The new XXX is supposed to be an improvement on that as well....

    I think
    Graf G7's are great gloves and for a stick my personal choice would be and Easton Synergy, i think they still make the best 1 piece sticks out of all the makers, but ya i would rather go with a Bauer Vapor XX rather than a Response as i've had 2 and they wear down pretty quickly

    I have not a hard shot and I tried a TPS Response, and by miracle, I had a hard shot. I am more of a finesse player.

    How does new Bauer Vapor XXX gloves cost ? And I think I will go with the good old Synergy silver...

    I believe the XXX gloves cost $140 USD. I am not 100% certain.

    If you are an easton stick fan, go for the stealth...not the synergy :)

    If I were you I wold get the vapor xx stick. The vapor xxx doesn't come out for a long time and when it does it will be very expensive, responses suck.

    The XXX comes out the 15th I thought, but I've seen bauer adds for the XX stick so I assume it's been pushed back.

    Stick: Definatley the Bauer Vapor XX IMO. Best stick out there. I have a stealth but the Vapor XX is better.

    Gloves, pending on how much you want to pay, can't go wrong with the Vapor XX or Vapor XXX. Rivaled by just about no one on the market. Also, Eagle 80Xi are good, but I have and would again go with the XX's, but now the XXX's came out, who knows which is better.
