Looking for a new stick

So about a year and a half ago I bought a Vapor XXX stick (the regular, not the lite), for $130. But tonight it snapped when I went into the boards awkwardly. It was easily my favorite stick I have ever used.

Anyways, I'm looking at getting another Bauer. I see the have the One90 and XXXX out now, but I'm only looking to spend under $200 on a new twig. I see they stopped making the regular XXX so I'm out of luck there.

Anyways, could anybody recommend me a new Bauer one-piece? Jokinen pattern by the way.

Thanks.

Or you can stock up on some Winwell g300 or 500s as those are XXXs too..plus they are dirt cheap.

Looks like the price of the 500 went up since I saw saw...remembered them being like $59 or 69, but the price now isn't too bad. I've called them before and the guy assured me that they were indeed Vapors and that he personally used them and couldn't tell a difference if there was one. I wound up buying a Montreal instead cause I like 'em

Thanks a lot sc.

Since you seem to be the expert, would you know which curve out of the ones listed would be the closest to the Jokinen? I know I'd like an Left-handed Sr. with an 85 flex preferably.

Yeah idk the codes, might call them up and ask. You probably want a heel, semi-open, 3/8" or 1/2" though. I dont remember the exact measurement for it and the only Jokinen's I've used have varied cause they are wooden.

The code for the Jokinen is P106. You'd probably be able to get by with a drury if a P106 clone isn't available
