Well that’s bland

Proves goalies are an after-thought. It is the “goalie equivalent” of the Bauer Agent player stick coming out soon which going to be like another sync, a limited edition sort of thing kind of like the old ADVs. Its literally a hyperlite with a slightly changed graphic. Big detail though is that it is lighter than the hyperlite

ADVs mean parents pay more. Like me...

I will say that the agent stick is pretty slick and ridiculously light. We may or may not have reviewed received a display last week along with some Proto-v sticks.

MSRP for a JR agent was $350 when we looked it up.

Parents will pay that. Easy...

When the Nexus ADV release happened in 2020 (the first Bauer with the hole in the blade). The pro shop sold out in hours. They had a big box in the store with the ADV logo on it with a 'don't open until...' date on the side. Every kid in the rink was drooling wondering what the stick would look like inside the display case. Then the release date came. Mayhem! ADVs were about $75-$100 more than the top Bauer models sold. Kids didn't care what pattern they could buy as long as it had that hole in the blade.

Bauer Nexus ADV Hockey Stick – Pro Hockey Life

Bauer will easily sell that goalie stick with some ADV type AGENT gimmick. But goalies are far fewer in every rink than skaters. 99% of the people in the rink think goalies still use wood sticks and pads are leather.

A lot of the guys I play with still use wooden, or at least foam core, sticks. They think composites are either like they once were, or they're apathetic, or they think they're too expensive (fair).

With regards to the slingshot stick, one of the guys I play with can actually take advantage of it and swears by it. His shot is absolutely wicked on the release.
