Releasing along with the rest of the revamped Nexus line is the new Nexus Performance Junior hockey stick series from Bauer. These sticks come in an elite look similar to that on the adult side, as well as particular colourways depending on the flex point to help track developing players’ progress. The Junior series is equipped with many high-performance features for future hockey stars, including a mid kick flex point, a 15K carbon fibre blade and shaft, and EZ-Flex technology. While the Vapor Junior series was tailored specifically for recreational play, this stick series focuses on performance-level play.
Stick Flex Profile
The Nexus Performance stick line follows the main focus of the Nexus line with a mid kick flex profile and EZ-Flex technology, making it easier and more efficient for younger players to flex their stick and load power into their shots. Mid kick is perfect for players who are just figuring out the type of hockey stick that works for them.
Shaft Construction & Stiffness
Bauer’s new Junior series of sticks are equipped with EZ-Flex for an easier load and release, with a strategically placed mid kick point. The shaft and blade are made of 15K carbon fibre in particular, which is used at higher price points as well due to its overall strength, light weight, and performance.
The blade is also made of 15K carbon for a truly balanced feel, and it is additionally equipped with Cellcore blade technology. Cellcore is a traditional and rigid blade core known for its ease of use.
Depending on the flex of the stick, the Junior series comes in three different colours: blue for flex 40, green for flex 30, and yellow for flex 20. The different colours help kids stay engaged with their stick and the game, and it can also be another way to track their progress as they move up in level.
The Nexus Performance series uses a soft gloss grip to make it easier for small hands to keep hold of the stick.
Blade Patterns, Flex & Stick Length
The Bauer Nexus Performance Junior Hockey Stick at Flex 40 comes in the following blade patterns: P28 and P92.
P92 is the best blade pattern for all-around play, with a mid-curve style. It is great at handling the puck in small spaces, including face-offs. It is the standard “beginner blade” and doesn’t specialize in a lot.
P28 is a more aggressive stick pattern, often used by elite players and favoured by younger generations. Young players will find it much easier to raise the puck on the forehand with this pattern. This blade also specializes in quick shots at higher levels, but it can be a bit difficult to control.
