Good players simply use their sticks—elite players, however, connect with their sticks.  Bauer’s Nexus 8000 Grip Composite Stick is ideal for the player looking for a balanced feel with a quick, effortless release with natural power.

Each Nexus 8000 Grip stick is constructed using TeXtreme Technology, a Bauer-exclusive, ultra-lightweight and strong carbon fiber.  Sticks are 20% lighter than conventional carbon, while the reduced weight doesn’t sacrifice strength.  With the help of Monocomp technology, the industry-leading single molding process, each product and performance consistency is ensured.  By removing excess material like overlapping layers, resin and foam waste, the balance of the stick is improved and overall weight is reduced.

Senior and Intermediate Nexus 8000 Grip sticks utilize eLASTech Technology, a proprietary resin system with carbon nanotube reinforcements, to increase durability by reducing the spread of microfractures caused by slashes and puck impacts.  This can extend a stick’s pop life to keep it feeling newer for a longer period of time.

Engineered to provide a natural release, the Nexus 8000’s TRU Mid-Kick flex profile has softer handle and hosel areas to allow for more flexion and, when combined with a stiff middle shaft section, deliver a quick, natural release with power.  And the stick’s shaft—the Nexus Power Shaft—features a square, double concave taper and is thicker in the hosel area to work in coordination with the Nexus TRU Mid-Kick.  This helps to minimize deflection during powerful shots, optimizing energy transfer and keeping the blade aligned for accuracy.  The stick’s GripTac finish will allow you to keep your hands on the Nexus 8000 at all times.

The Nexus Power Taper is a .520 taper that boosts torsional stiffness to maximize loading with less torquing and twisting for better control and precision.  This blade’s Power Sense Core is an energy-absorbent core that maximizes power and puck ‘feel’ while the lightweight Aero Foam 3 heel improves balance and core stability.  Sense technology has been added for increased puck control and shot acceleration.  A Pure Shot blade profile increases the connection point between the blade-hosel transition of the stick. This reduces the amount of blade deflection—the twisting or opening of the blade while shooting—improving blade control and delivering pinpoint shooting accuracy.

It’s all about connecting.  A hockey stick, after all, is an extension of your natural skill and power.  Bauer’s Nexus 8000 Grip Composite Stick allows you to form a connection with your stick—and you’ll reap the rewards.



Rated 5 out of 5 by from hardest clap bomb I recently purchased this stick (yesterday) and I couldn't be more pleased. I got this stick as a backup and it feels quite like my mx3. but overall i love the stick and definitely would recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closest thing to how wood stick performs A top of the line stick is expensive and can break like cheap one too. The performance of the Nexus is amazing! It flexes like a wooden stick would, is durable (mine has last 8 mos so far and my first N1000 over a year). I play B league and coach with this stick twice a week, so not overly heavy use, but hard play. The bottom of the blade wont crack and the interior blade foam holds up longer than most blades, but will eventually go soft after awhile like any other stick, Still for the money and time, have not found anything else that can out perform this Nexus line.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Parents worst nightmare My son loves this stick but he goes through them like cheap socks. We've been able to get a couple replaced within the 30 day guarantee, however, most break around the 45-60 day timeframe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy-Broke after 1 tournament! Please beware of Bauer products! Bought this stick for my son in May - after hockey season. Didn't get to use it until a recent hockey tournament – as mentioned hockey season was over when I purchased the stick and gave it to him. Stick broke after only a couple times of using it. Called Bauer and explained it was outside the 30 day return policy but it was given as a gift after hockey season and he just got to use it. They asked me to send pics. They agreed it was barely used but refuse to stand behind their product. Called local stores that carry hockey equipment and was told my first mistake was buying a Bauer stick to begin with. They break easily!!! Buyer Beware! For $259 - I would NOT recommend this stick!

Asked by: Anonymous1018
Depends on the flex but the super fast is stiffer
