Bauer X40 Stickum

I just broke my supreme one95 and I was thinking about getting a replacement stick that was cheaper and I saw that the X40 was around 100 bucks. If anyone has used one their input would be greatly appreciated because I wouldnt want to buy a stick and hate it. Any help appreciated thanks.

It has a different kickpoint than the One95. I have used both and prefer the One95. The Vapor 40 doesn't have as good a puck "feel" to me.

Sorry to bump up this thread, but, do you like the stick?

Been looking for another stick, and don't feel like spending over 150$.

I'm curious for a review as well... I don't like the X:20, seems sorta clunky. I do like the feel of the X:40 in the store though.

I have one and I like it. I'm not the greatest, just a stick and puck/pick-up guy a couple times a month. It's the most expensive stick I've bought/used so I can't compare it to the good stuff, but it does it's job. I can get good velocity on wristers and snappers. Seems durable so far, just a little chip on the blade where it got knicked by a skate.

Pros:
-Quite light at its price point as well as balanced, not too blade-heavy
-If you get the right flex, this thing can do great things for your shot, preferable wristers and snappers due to low kickpoint
-Stick'Um
-Good blade for catching passes
-Overall one of the best retail priced sticks in the $100 price range

Cons:
-Mediocre puck feel
