Finally, a true successor to the One95..?

Apparently Bauer is saying the new one.9 will be the closest thing to the one95 yet.

http://www.hockeyworldblog.com/2012/...-hockey-stick/

I really hope this is true as the one95 was BY FAR my favorite stick.. my only question is i remember them saying the one100 was the successor to the one95, which many felt was untrue.. so how will the one.9 differ from the one100?

I'll be skeptical until I hear mass market feedback and/or use it myself. I believe the most important parts to puck feel are going to be the foam core, carbon blade weave, construction and finally resins in that order (nothing really to back that, just imo). The One.9 will not have the Power Core II that the One95 had but shares the same 3K carbon weave. Not sure if that will make it a clone in terms of feel so we will have to see. For now, I'm taking that as effective marketing of a pricepoint product.

I love to tell you, but brand new flagship sticks are ridiculously priced nowadays. Companies are pricing people out of using them, technology be damned.

yea, i'm also worried the 'soft' blade feel may have had something to do with the lack of the new (as per article) 'pure shot blade profile, ie thicker throat' which takes away defelection, that is in the newer sticks like the totalone.

also i wonder if the fact that the one95 wasn't a 'true' one peice versus the new 'true' onepiece totalone/one100/one.9

if i can find the same feel as the one95 i'll gladly pay top dollar for it.

The One95 was my favourite stick ever made, unfortunately I don't believe I'll be able to get the One.9, hopefully for those who do purchase it, that's better than the One95.

I've owned both a one95 and a totalone, and I find them to be very similar. The TO is the closest you'll find imo, doubt a price point stick will be more similar

Maybe it's just me but if I were naming a product line, I would make it easily searchable. Things like X:60 and X7.0 and one.9 aren't very easy to find on a search engine. Warrior does a much better job, IMO. Widow, Diablo, Dynasty, Dolomite, Kronik, very easy to search.

I couldn't agree more. Easton is also bad, but Bauer is that absolute worst. Some items are 100% unsearchable.

The problem that some people feel Warrior had was that their naming conventions were confusing to people. Is a Bentley (nice car bro) stick better than a Vandal? What about Anthem? Esquire? They all have nice paintjobs... people looking at it blankly have no idea until the physically check all of the prices. Everyone else has the traditional numerical naming conventions. 100 > 80 > 60 etc.etc.

Heck Warrior's new DT1 - 5 line is numerical, but reversed. The DT1 > 2 > 3 etc.

Yeah I don't like the new names.

I kind of hate how companies now put out so many of the same "line" of sticks. You've got the $225 stick, the $175 stick, the $125 stick, the $90 stick, the $70 stick, the $50 stick...give it a rest. They all kind of suck under the $125 mark. Is there really that big a difference between the Bauer X2.0 and the One30?

I like it when a company focuses their efforts. Do the $225 high end stick with all the bells and whistles, a good $150-ish stick with no frills but good performance, and then you can do your starter stick in that $50-100 range. Warrior used to do that, don't any more. Easton used to do that as well.

I know, I know, that's not where the money is. But when you have seventy different products all purporting to do the same thing at every price point imaginable, it's more marketing driven than product driven. It just bugs me.

for me the blade feel is much different. the one95 has a soft blade feel whereas the t1 has a hard/defelctive blade feel. ie, i found the one95 blade sucked in the puck while stick handling whereas the t1 almost deflects/ricochets the puck away.

how do they compare blade feel wise?

The 100 was a bit firmer, but in a good way. Held the puck well, but allowed for a firmer shot. At least that's what I found.

Big thing for me is I cut my sticks pretty short, and the 100 seemed to keep its shot a lot better than the 95.

One95 is the best stick ever. The best for everyone would be if Bauer just began to make them again.

I hate Warrior for naming their stick Dynasty. I tried buying it on eBay and every result came up with:

The Bauer rep relayed that the One.9 isn't a straight re-make of the One95 but it's as close as it will come. It has a slightly thicker thicker throat.

The One100 was a replacement for the One85, not the One95. That was the TotalOnes job. Don't know how a price point stick One100 felt better than a top of the line One95. They still held back on it.

The One95 was in my opinion the best stick ever. Also liked the TotalOne but not as much. Too bad that the new One.9 will probably cost so much that I cannot afford it in couple years...

The One100 was not a price-point stick IMO. It was an outstanding stick that was priced just under the Totalone. It was pretty much the next step down from the TO.

Also Bauer isn't selling a grip version of the One.9. That will be Europe-only.

And the only part of the line in which the one100 was a successor to the one95 was the skates. Its the exact same skate, just a bit lighter. I prefer the one100 skates to the totalOnes, anyways. The moisture wicking ankle pad just wore off after a month anyways.
