Wristers that I had time to load up on did not have as much pop on them as they did with my Total One. At one point on a 2 on 1 a guy hit me with a pass that was behind me and I had no time to load up at all. I was still able to one time it and it was a rocket past a diving goalie. Overall I am pretty pleased so far.

Also the guy at my LHS told me that last season many of the forwards in the NHL that were seen with Total Ones were actually painted Nexus'. He used Stamkos as one example. It will be interesting to see if Stamkos has the Nexus this year.
Good to hear man. I feel like I get a more explosive pop with my X 60 when it comes to wrist shots, then again my X60 is a 102 flex stick. As a player who looks pass first, and likes to create plays, and huck sauce....overall I'm just looking for a stick that will allow me to get off a quick shot, and my Nexus does that for me.
