Took my Nexus 1000 stick out for the first time. I must say, its impressive.

Loading the stick seemed easier to me, and my shots appeared to have speed. I also like the feel of the puck on the Nexus as well. Its not as "pingy" as the X:60s I've been using.

I still need to get used of the shape of the shaft. Coming from the Vapor line, I find the squarish shaft tougher to hold. The Nexus feels thicker than the X:60, and my top hand was actually getting tired near the end of the stick & puck session.

I need to work on is keeping my slapshots down. Quite a few of my shots went over the net. I'm using the same curve as I had previously on my X:60, so I wonder if the flex profile is partially causing the increased lift. I wasn't having this issue before.

Just a warning: the Nexus feels/plays a whippier than its flex rating. I have a 67 intermediate, and it is quite different than a 67 in an X:60. The flex profile may also be responsible this feel.
