Help one Ice Hockey Stick?
The Vapor 40 is a derivative of the Mac Daddy. Innovative, the company Warrior acquired to get into the hockey biz, used to make sticks for NikeBauer. Innovative was behind the Vapor XX, NBH's original monocomp model and modified that design to make it the Mac Daddy for Warrior. NBH, in turn, took the Innovative design and parlayed into the Vapor XXX Lite and later, the Vapor XXXX. History aside, those two models vary from the Dolomite in that they are true one piece designs while the Dolomite is a bonded one piece. The difference is that the Mac Daddy and Vapor XXXX co-mold shaft and blade - much like the original Easton Stealth - while the Dolomite bonds shaft and blade after the pieces are manufactured separately, using a permanent, two part epoxy (like the Synergy). As for which I'd recommend, I think the Dolomite is the best performance:durability value, while the Vapor XXXX is the purer shooting stick. The Mac Daddy doesn't get consideration because it has not evolved as much as the Bauer since they were the same stick 4 years ago. Lastly, given your size, you may want to consider an intermediate size in whichever model you choose. If you really want to use a senior size stick, then go with the softest available flex - 77 in the Vapor 40. Good luck.
From what I have seen I would get the Bauer (I use Easton myself) How much are you contributing to the cost or are mum and/or dad getting you this as a christmas present? Either way, although I am not jealous, when I was your age I thought spending $30 on a Koho Revolution stick in a Mario Lemieux pattern was overkill.
im no longer precisely particular of a huge difference, some ice hockey sticks may be used in street hockey. i imagine human beings have a tendency now to not use their ice hockey stick on the line so as that it would not get recked. in case you had a composite stick you possibly would not want to apply it to the line, so as that it would not get recked. you may likely ask someone at a hockey or events save.
