Spend the bulk of your $$ on skates. If your feet hurt then learning to play will suck. the rest of the equipment you can find for less than three hundred. Its a ton of fun but the hours do suck. LOL...Right now I play in a 3 v 3 plus goalies floor hockey league on Wednesdays. I never played ice hockey before but hope to get into a mens league in the future. I just don't have the time nor money to buy all of the equipment and learn the game on ice.
Yes the APX line not VPX (duh). Sounds like fun. Ovi was in Exeter NH last summer where Bauer's new HQ is. I didn't see him though.the APX shoots hard! I filmed a testimonial for some Bauer folks this summer shooting with it, but it never made it into any of their promotional stuff afaik.
i was just saying the same thing low end this year next year spend some more cash on a pro level stick.I've been using Bauer vapors the past few years but recently picked up a warrior mojo to try out. I like the feel of it except that it's unbalanced, ie heavier at the blade, which most lower end composites are. Other than that I like it. I might try one of their higher end sticks if I catch one of the 11 models on clearance.
