The Bauer Nexus 2N Pro Intermediate Hockey Stick builds off of the very popular 1N, with upgrades to the performance, weight, and graphic to create the best Nexus stick to date. The 2N will combine Bauer's new DuraFlex system with there Control Shaft Geometry to provide the same grip and control with added strength and durability. This works with an easy load taper design to provide a smoother, and easier to load stick that provides better consistency with each shot.
Bauer will continue to use there TeXtreme construction that is 20% lighter than conventional carbon. This allows the Nexus 2N Pro to be such a lightweight stick without cutting any corners when it comes to durability and performance.
The biggest upgrade to the Nexus 2N Pro comes in the blade department. Bauer is bringing the ACL (Advanced Carbon Layering) blade technology found in the 1X Lite to the 2N Pro. This uses a thinner and stronger internal carbon that increases the strength, balance, and release time without compromising strength.
The Nexus 2N Pro features R-LITE Technology in the blade of the stick. This construction provides added stiffness and weight reduction from the previous Nexus 1N model. The durability of the stick still remains rigid as Bauer has precisely placed thin layers of carbon in high use areas of the blade.
Even with all these upgrades the 2N Pro still comes in at 10 grams lighter than the previous model. With it all wrapped up in a new sleek graphic featuring the Nexus blue we've come accustomed to.
Hockey Player Stick Sizing & Information Guide
Selecting the right stick for you.
When it comes to sizing a Hockey Stick, the length tends to be a preference. Sticks come in Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Youth lengths with corresponding flex options. You will need to consider your weight and height or the person you are buying for in order to choose the correct size. Intermediate, Junior, and Youth hockey sticks will have smaller shaft dimensions, making them easier for young players to hold and control.
A stick can always be cut down in length, and will usually be cut down for kids. However, selecting a hockey stock too long in length or the wrong flex can hinder performance. For kids, junior, intermediate and senior all come in roughly standards length. In some cases, each Junior flex will be a different length of stick. Look at each and compare the height of the player you are buying for.
Flex can be tricky to pick as every hockey player is different and has their own preference. You can think of flex numbers as pounds of force. Having too stiff or too whippy a stick can hinder performance in their own ways.
Personalizing your stick length.
As mentioned before, length is very much personal preference. To determine a benchmark height, stand with your shoes off and the stick against your body with the toe on the ground. As a general rule of thumb we recommend sticks to come up to between your mouth and nose. For kids, or players who are still growing, the maximum height we recommend is eye level.
Mark the shaft of the stick where the height is desired and cut it down to length. Make sure to re-insert the plug from the top to prevent an open composite end at the top of your stick.
When cutting a stick down, keep in mind that the shorter you cut a stick, the stiffer it becomes. As a general rule, a stick increases 3% in stiffness for every inch cut off. If you are unsure how much you want to cut off, take the least amount first so that you can always cut more if necessary. Cutting the stick multiple times will not affect the sticks construction.
Information to Consider
Players want to be able to fully flex the stick. If a stick is too soft, the resulting shot will be inaccurate and weak. If a stick is too stiff, there will be no power behind the shot. Think of the flex number as pounds of force. This is the number of pounds that need to be put into the stick to fully flex it.
In most cases, sticks are offered in multiple blade curve pattern options. Please refer to our blade pattern charts for more information regarding the patterns available.
Kick Point Options
A Mid-kick stick will have a stiffer taper so that it flexes more in the middle of the shaft. These sticks have a longer loading time but offer a more powerful shot, perfect for players taking a lot of slap shots.
A Low-kick stick will have a stiffer middle of the shaft and softer taper so that it flexes at the bottom of the shaft closer to the blade. These sticks will have a much quicker release perfect for quick snap shots and writs shots.
