BROKEN BAUER STICK, 2010s
This composite Bauer stick met the wrong side of something — perhaps a puck or a player or even another stick. Composite sticks became popular in the 1990s and are made by layering sheets of carbon fiber on top of each other which makes for a very light, but very strong stick. If you look closely at the broken end, you can see the layers under the painted finish.
