2X Pro

Recommended Posts

With the pro guys starting to get it, we’re getting some glimpses as the 2X line...

This won’t be to retail for about 10 months?

I'm hoping that the pads Vasy's wearing have a color zone not being used. I understand Bauer's going for minimal these days, but those four little stripes are not enough color.

I really like the look of the 2X chest

The forearms look super beefy

And the heart guard looks like it could stop a missile!

I talked with a Bauer rep about a week ago. He said that the pads were vasys custom graphic. Looking at the chesty it might be true but the guy was a player skate rep so no clue if he knew what the graphic would look like.

I don't know man. The way the Bauer logo is placed on the face of the pad makes it seem like it was specifically designed that way to showcase the name.

Most of the custom Bauer pads look to have the name on the outer roll and not in the same angle as the graphic.

Like I said he was a player skate rep so he knows a bit but not too much. The more I look at the pads and chesty the more it points to then being the stock graphic

@Jacob Musselman @Awgoalie164 I think that's a stock graphic. Check out how the pebbling lines up with the graphic. Why would they go out of their way to add texturing for a one off digital graphic?

I could see be a "glow" or gradient effect surrounding the four spikes that fades into white where the Bauer logo is. It would kind of echo the 2s stock graphic. I can't tell if it's a shadow but it definitely looks off-white around the edge of the spikes towards the Bauer wordmark which reminds of how they slightly tint the colorzone when you order an all white OD1n pad.

I have a feeling there are unused color zones on Vasi’s pads. I’d imagine a fully customized one could look sorta like this?

Yeah I'm thinking that area between the spikes has a gradient zone that's not being used parallel to the inner spikes feding inward toward the logo. That would make it look like the 2s graphic except in an 'A' shape instead of a 'V' and with the gradient on the inside instead of the outside.

That might even be a solid zone, but Bauer loves gradients to show off the digital printing.

It looks like there’s some new texturing on the inner part of the front of the pad. The stick also says vapor on it and has the same graphic like the pads so I think it is a 2X stick

Here’s the 2X Pro stick 

F937446C-37A9-4B63-AF26-753C1FBB2C1C.jpeg

Thats Reimer right? Ik he had used the reactor skinned as a 1x last year, so that might just be the graphic.

Also, since its called the 2xPRO, im assuming their will be a Senior Pro 2x, like the 2s, right?

Really like his graphics on these. 

1. I dont get how he played 60 games without switching into a new set, but guys like Cory Schnieder said he gets new gloves every 10 games, give or take, and gets new leg pads every 6 weeks, give or take

2. Is that a 2 piece?

Yes, there’s no way of knowing what that stick is based on these images

Yeah for sure. I saw on the side of the shaft writing that looked like it said ¨PRO¨ if you look close, but its blurry i cant tell completley

All depends on how the goalie likes their equipment. Bobs gets a new gear like monthly I’ve heard 

Bauer has also put lots of energy into durability. Heard Hank used less gear last year too

Yes, but each company uses different materials 

So each material and each brand will break down at a slightly different rate 

then each goalie has a different threshold that tells them it’s time to get new gear 

so each brand and each goalie will change and dictate how long equipment lasts

yeah it is complete preference, like goalies like Murray prefer a stiffer glove. last season in game 6 of the conference final he was playing with a brand new mitt. idk how, but he won the cup so ig it works for him

Looks like we were right that Vasy has an unused color zone on his pad. Markstom’s sneak peek (assuming it’s a stock graphics) shows the same spears as Vasy’s set, but with a stylized gradient surrounding the Bauer logo.
