The Bauer Supreme S190 Composite goal stick is designed for butterfly/blocking style goalies who tend to keep their hands tight to the body when making saves. Its patented ergonomic paddle/shoulder geometry "pushes" the paddle away from the body slightly so that it can seal closer to the pads and body when making a save.
The paddle and blade are made with a carbon glass weave reinforced outer wrap to give the stick a unique combination of performance, durability and shock dampening capabilities. This composite composition also works with the stick's air bladder core to reduce weight and stick vibrations. Low density foam surrounds the core of the blade and lowers the weight while providing honest puck feel. The stiffness of the blade makes it easier to move the puck to teammates or clear the puck off the boards or glass.
The Supreme S190 also comes equipped with GRIPTAC technology - a tactile area at the shoulder of the stick that provides for better grip.
