Think you know Reactor sticks? Think again. For 2016 the entire Reactor line of sticks has been revamped to offer goalies with even more options while choosing their companion of choice. The composite construction of the previous Reactor line has been replaced with a more traditional and reliable foam core construction that goalies of all skill levels will love.
The paddle of the Reactor 9000 is constructed of a high density urethane core combined with 10 carbon strips running the length of the paddle to add stiffness and reduce breakage. This layup is manufactured in a traditional, symmetrical paddle geometry for goalies who prefer a classic feel and performance.
It wouldn’t be a Bauer stick without the latest and greatest technology. In the 9000, the designers have included a Carbon Triaxial Braid carbon weave to reinforce the blade, again adding stiffness and reducing breakage in the high impact areas. An additional reinforced shooter strip along the length of the blade prevents blade flex, allowing for more consistent deflections and puck handling.
The shaft is constructed of an aspen core, reinforced with carbons strips for both reinforcement and improving shaft stiffness.
Note that the New Reactor line of sticks has changed its paddle measurement system. A Reactor 9000 paddle length of 25” will equate to a Supreme paddle measurement of 26.5”.
