Upcoming hockey stick review: the Vapor X:20 Stick’um composite

After enjoying the use of an Easton Synergy EQ50 for a few weeks, it’s on to another one-piece composite hockey stick to review, and this time I’m going to shift brands, and shift gears to a more affordable option, Bauer’s Vapor X:20 Stick’Um. It costs roughly 1/3rd as much as the high-end EQ50 (at HockeyMonkey, the Bauer Vapor X:20 Stick’um S10 Sr. Composite Hockey Stick is $64.99, compared to $209.99 for the Easton Synergy EQ50 Grip Sr. Hockey Stick), but offers a number of features that I hope will provide many of the same benefits.

Will the Vapor X:20 provide that “bang for the buck” that may be more appropriate for the casual, rec-league hockey player? Stay tuned for my review once I’ve had the chance to try it in game action a few times…

Easton Synergy EQ50 contest celebrates Zdeno Chara’s Hardest Shot record

To celebrate Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara’s record-breaking win in the Hardest Shot event during the NHL’s All-Star Skills Competition, Easton Hockey has announced that they’re opening a contest in which you can win the same kind of stick which Chara used to defeat Shea Weber’s challenge. It’s a phenomenal stick, as I detailed in my recent review of the Easton Synergy EQ50.

What Easton is looking for is your own homemade “power shot” video, and you’ve got two weeks from today (February 2, 2011) to submit one. Looking for a little inspiration? Check out the video of the final round:

For more, head over to Easton Hockey’s Facebook Page, where you can get all the details and post your video. The winner will be selected by which entry receives the most “Likes” on the Facebook page.

Good luck, and if you need to get yourself one in order to maximize your own shot power, you can buy the Easton Synergy EQ50 Grip Sr. Hockey Stick over at HockeyMonkey.com.
