I wonder if this is the BGP2B  construction that's popped up a few times that is apparently stupid light?

Hopefully it's not another Neuroshield type of thing most of us have no use for

They spent 3 years developing a stick that they are only going to produce 3000 of worldwide? That seems wasteful.. Plus, if you buy it and like it you cant buy a second one? The price on this thing will likely be stupid too, $350-$400 I am guessing.

Its a stick, so odds it wont be.

Just talked to one of the reps I know, he cant confirm price but he suggested between 350-400$. He did say that it was crazy light though, 355g


Always looking for Bauer NXG or MX3 gloves!

BGP2B is still considered as a 1x lite stick ... probably a new taper some kind of an elliptical taper (just saying ;) )

I will stick to the $150 range sticks on PSH or here, they get the job done.

If Bauer's claim of 3 years of development is to believed then it's not likely to be the elliptical taper because the Easton purchase was sometime in early 2016 and I don't think you just change your taper on a stick that's been in development for a year at that point.

Would be pretty neat if it was the elliptical taper though.

This could be Bauer's OD1N project's stick. We've already seen the shins, elbows, and skates so what would have stopped Bauer from trying to make a stick as light as possible.

if I had to hazard a pretty good guess, I'd say it's a repainted 1x lite with a 379.99 cdn price tag. But who knows, just spit balling 🙄

Its not an LE stick, it seems to be a new technology.

(Tin foil hat on)

 

Easton had a sub 400 gram stick 10+ years ago

 

Bauer buys Easton and their technology

 

Bauer produces the "newest, latest, greatest, lightest, most expensivest  stick ever..."
