Depends on whether you're referring to the XXX or the XXX Lite. I had a ton of XXX's and also some of the first XXX-Lites and their durability was pretty poor but the NikeBauer XXX-Lites have much better durability, and the feel and performance on that stick is as good as any IMO. I love the XXX as well but it's durability was fairly poor, I broke 2 in 2 weeks.

I've had a couple SL's as well, they're ok. Nice performance, fairly light, but durability is definitely not all that great by any means. I'd take the XXX-Lite's durability before an SL, and I'd take the SL over a XXX regular (the navy and red old stick) in terms of durability. I'm a big fan of Bauer, but aside from Bauer, Easton is the only other company I'll use for sticks, you really can't go wrong with an SL or a XXX, I'd take the XXX though.

the XXX lite nikebauer is the best stick out there right now IMO. i suggest the XXX lite

Sorry yes the Lite was the stick I was referring to. Is the Lindros pattern the closest one to RBKs datsyuk?

I would think so. The Lindros might be slightly deeper. I've never used Datsyuk's curve but the Lindros curve is pretty much the main reason I love the bauer sticks.

Defintely 100% go with the XXX lite over the SL. There's no comparison IMO.

ya ive used both stick, the XXX lite is probly the best stick ive ever had. I didnt find it be very durable though, right now im using an st synergy.

Xxx Lite!!!!

McNasty 08-05-2007 04:42 PM

The thing is I hardly ever take slapshots, fewer then 1 per game and rarely in practice, I just like corking off wristers and snap shots and I had heard that the SL is fast to wear down, and also that the XXX lite has a better release. Thanks for the opinions though guys I really appreciate it.

I'm the same, rarely ever slappers. XXX lite has a great release and the SL does wear down very quickly.

I'm looking for a stick that will last me from september to christmas before it starts to wear down, but I've never really experienced a stick wearing down, I love my 7k and it hasn't worn down since christmas but some idiot tried to knee me and bent the shaft so its all fed up now....

Plus the XXX lite is only like 150 retail where I live, so I should be able to find a Lindros, just curious what flex do you use?

XweekendwarriorX 08-05-2007 08:47 PM

I do take alot of slap shots and the stiffer the better but i have read articles from players such as Joe Sakic, Chris Drury, Brett Hull they all have said they think a lower flex or allows them to get a harder shot off and i think Sakic likes to use something like a 75..

I love the XXX-Lite. My favorite stick ever. I use the Lindros curve with 100 flex, but I put a TON of torque on my shots.
