When purchasing a new hockey stick, there are many factors to consider to ensure you get the best model for your level and style of play. To start, it is important to focus on kick-point. This will help take your shot, and overall on-ice performance, to the next level. If you’re unsure which kick-point suits you best, or you’re looking for an accurate assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey.

Bauer enhances the Proto-R stick by taking what makes the Nexus line so successful and adding some incredible features and technologies for one of the lightest mid-kick sticks ever brought to market. The Proto-R is comprised of a mid-kick point, built for players who like to shoot from anywhere, giving them ultimate versatility. 

The Proto-R stick features a dark, sleek design with holographic logos, a standard taper and a construction that is replicated after the trusted Nexus 2N pro stick, which is very popular among NHL players. 

In the shaft, working hand in hand is the Asymmetrical Textreme and Advanced Carbon Layering 2.0. Textreme is Bauer’s top of the line carbon fiber and ACL 2.0 processes that carbon fiber into thinner layers laid out in multiple directions to reduce weight. In addition, Bauer added an extra carbon layer in the shaft to address some durability issues.

Passed down from the AG5NT stick is the use of the element Boron. What makes boron so unique for a hockey stick is that it has two times the compression strength and two times the stiffness compared to the best carbon fiber in the world. In addition, Bauer has the exclusive partnership to be able to take boron, which comes in a powder form, and create it into a fiber, so you can actually utilize it in a hockey stick.

Bauer strategically placed this material on the back part of the shaft to reduce the weight without doing anything to the durability of the product. You're going to be able to lean into this stick with those shots, and that compression strength is going to allow you to load those shots and release it faster than ever before. The added stiffness in the stick does not refer to the flex, it means that a stronger material is being used.

The newest technology found in the Proto-R is the X-Stiff blade. It features dual bridges fused into a stiff foam increasing recoil, stability and pop.  Also found in the blade is Textreme and ACL 2.0, giving you the same benefits as the shaft; lighter weight carbon fiber and more consistent strength. This blade paired with a mid-kick gives you extra snap on your shots from anywhere on the ice. 

The Bauer Proto-R stick combines some of their most trusted features with new high-end technologies to offer an elite level stick for players who skate 4+ times per week and loved the Nexus but is looking for something lighter, and more versatile with unmatched feel.
