  1. I will update this thread as time goes along. Once again thank you to ThinkingJack and Warrior for making me a #WarriorVIP and hooking me up with this stick. I am extremely grateful and appreciate it. I've had a few people ask me about this stick so far and I feel it would be better for me to just make a quick write up about it rather than have to say the same thing over and over again. I have used the stick about 5 times so far on the ice (my league is unfortunately taking a 2 week break or else that number would be higher) and have used it on my outdoor shooting pad. Since I haven't used it enough to talk about the durability of the stick this will not be a full blown review but rather more of an initial impressions and initial performance review and because of that I will not add scores to anything but Warrior Covert QRL 100 Flex W03 Backstrom Stick History: Sherwood 9950 Wood Coffey, Bauer Supreme (Sport Chek SMU) Kane, Sherwood T70 Stastny, Winwell GX8, Easton RS Parise, Warrior AK27 , Warrior DT1LT Pavelski, Warrior DT1ST Grandlund, Verbero PM44, Sherwood Rekker EK60 PP26, Warrior Covert QRL W03 Stick Info: Height: uncut Weight: 409 Grams Grip: Yes Shaft: Gloss Length: 60 inches Usage: 5 Skates Grip: I am not a huge fan of grip sticks and most of the time prefer the non-grip and matte versions to them. With this stick I didn't have a choice in grip vs non-grip and had to go with the grip stick. I was really hoping the grip was going to be similar to my Warrior AK27 and be the velvet style, but it is more of a tacky style of grip. It does have CorTex Grip which is raised edges along the sides of the shaft which I really like. The bottom of the stick has the matte finish closer to the blade and I know I would enjoy using that style of shaft more so than this gripped version... with that said the grip certainly doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the stick and I enjoy the grip used here more than the one on CCM and Bauer sticks that I have tried before. Aesthetics: Warrior has talent when it comes to design good looking sticks that are instantly noticeable and ones you can follow the lines of lineage (Bauer Supreme does a good job at this too). I have a soft spot for orange (one reason I really liked the Sherwood EK60 design) and baby blue and Warrior does an awesome job in using those colours as accents to the black base of this stick. I really like how the bottom of the shaft is orange near the blade and I like how they use the colours to form a background of the word marks (notice how QRL and Warrior are in black with the colours surrounding them instead of just using the colours on the black stick base). I also love exposed carbon fibre weave that is on the blade and up the hosel, I personally wish this traveled all the way up the entire stick since I love that look so much. I understand why they didn't as it would make the black word marks too busy with exposed carbon fibre and the intricate designs around them. This stick looks great from any angle and is immediately noticeable that it is a Warrior Covert. Blade/Curve: Just like the grip I did not have many choices when deciding on the curve options. I choose the W03 since it was the only one available in the shaft flex I wanted. I normally prefer heel curves like the W05 Grandlund as they fit my style of play and are great for passing (which I do before shooting). With that said because of my time with the Ek60 I have gotten more used to curves that are more aggressive and I am so far getting along with this stick pretty well. The first time on the ice I had some hard passes get too much air but I have since adjusted to it. The blade itself is really nice and is very stiff which is great for puck feel and play-ability. The stiffness of the blade has a pingy and lively feel and is really noticeable when receiving a hard pass and stick handling, you always know where the blade is and where the puck is on it and I believe the stiff nature of the blade provides excellent feedback. Stick Handling: With the lightweight and lively blade stick handling with this stick has been very good. Unlike some lightweight sticks in the past I never "lose" the blade of this stick and always know where it is. The stiff blade gives me confidence when handling the puck since it gives great feedback to how the puck is actually behaving on the stick itself. The excellent balance helps the stick feel like a natural extension to your hands and never feels unwieldy. Shooting: This is the shinning point of the Warrior Covert QRL. I cannot recall a time when I felt pucks fly off of my stick as hard and as consistent as they do with this stick. Using it reminds me of the first time I used my DT1LT, except these feel even harder. With minimal effort my shots come off my stick hard with a satisfying and strong kick. I truly feel this stick is making me a better hockey player as I no longer have to worry about the mechanics of my shot to ensure I really release a rocket. I spent time on my shooting board with this and my beloved EK60 and I could really notice the difference in average shots where it felt like the Warrior Covert QRL really did most of the work for me. Out of 10 shots I felt that 9 of them left me completely satisfied without the feeling that I could get more on them, but with my EK60 only a couple out of 10 I was completely satisfied on how the puck came off the blade and ended up. To me the Warrior feels like it never leaves anything on the table and doesn't require you to make a perfect shot, it just kicks hard and launches the puck in a very satisfying manner. Slapshots feel almost dangerous with this stick for how hard they were launching to the point where I wasn't comfortable in taking them on my shooting board to ensure an errant puck off a post wouldn't damage any fences or property. Passing: I am not sure if it was the kick of the stick or the curve which was giving me some issues the 1st time I was on the ice, but a lot of my stretch passes ended up far too high for my target. I have since adjusted my passing a bit and haven't really had any issues since. While the blade isn't my idea curve for saucer passes and passing in general I am not having a difficult time passing over players sticks or cross-ice. Backhand passes will need work because of the aggressive curve but that is something I will just practice and get used to. Durability: So far everything is holding up great and the stick still feels brand new. But with its limited usage I cannot fully comment on this category yet. Feel: I mentioned the excellent and stiff blade earlier already. The balance of the stick is fantastic and it does a good job of being lightweight but still being noticeable. I never feel like the stick doesn't have a blade and always feel in total control of the stick. The lack of weight also helps with making the stick extremely mobile in terms of movement, you never feel bogged down when moving your hands or attempting to move the stick (something I feel time to time when using much heavier goalie sticks). While this stick is slightly heavier than the Sherwood EK60 I really don't notice the difference between the 2 in terms of weight. Closing: If the durability in terms of blade stiffness and shooting kick hold up this will easily be my favourite stick I have ever used. I am unbelievably happy with is so far and am really grateful Warrior and ThinkingJack having given me the opportunity to use it because I really can't get enough of it so far. The Warrior Covert QRL as it stands is the best stick I have used in terms of performance and balance, shots kick off the blade harder than anything I've used and the stiff blade is wonderful for puck control and feel. I absolutely love the carbon wrap visible in the blade. Stick comes in at a respectable 409 grams. Not the lightest stick I have used but it feels wonderfully balanced and I never notice the extra grams compared to the lighter ones. I am a big fan of the graphic package as well.
  2. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/152-2013-warrior-hockey-catalogue/ Sticks - New for 2013 is the updated Dynasty line – continuing with the AxySym technology. The Dynasty AX1 has been upgraded in several areas; the biggest changes are on the bottom half of the stick. Starting from the fuse point (HiFused), the lower part of the shaft has been reinforced to prevent twisting, and the blade is the same as what was debuted on the Covert DT1. The matte clear shaft has their Velvet finish, and the SlickGrip (which has a textured feel on one side of the shaft) is the Grip version. AX2 shares the same blade however doesn’t have the shaft reinforcement and the fuse point is lower. While the AxySym tech goes down to the lowest model, from the AX3 and down, other than weight, you’ll lose one of the spars in the blade. Covert line carries over for 2013. The goal sticks carry over for 2013, however, there is a new Swagger stick – which is the TF2. Biggest difference between them is that the regular Swagger has a reinforced heel and comes in more colorways. Helmets – unchanged Protective – This is where Warrior went out and made things a little more simple in terms of lines; there will only be one line of protective going forward. Going with their cap technology, which consists of multiple layers of materials to disperse impact and reduce weight, they’ve also changed the liner; they are going with Polygiene, which has been used in other sports equipment to reduce odor and moisture management. The liner’s color is yellow (that is Dynasty’s color, Covert is blue.) The elbow pads are very impressive – if you are one of those guys like me who won’t get rid of their Jofas, this surely makes it tempting to. The shin pads are a bit leaner than previous Warrior shin pads as well, and fit very well. There will be three models of protective – Dynasty AX1/AX2/AX3, and what’s even better is the price points they are placed at. Also, one of the biggest stories they want to tell this year is fit – Warrior is introducing an intermediate sizing chart – on shoulder pads, they will go Jr S/M, L/XL, Int S/M, Int L/XL, then Sr S-XL. On the shins, they will have an Int 14” and 15” which will be less bulky than their Sr counterparts (although there will be a Sr 15”) Gloves – Keeping with the line trimming, the Franchise-style gloves remain unchanged, however, the Luxe and Projekt lines have been scrapped. The Covert glove will be a mash-up of those two models; a tapered fit, with the SmartPalm+ palm that was featured on the Projekt glove, and the Bone System padding that was on the Luxe. Other new features include the vented outer, which is mesh-like to the touch. The liner will be their Chillwave, however, will have Polygiene, and is blue. Very good feel out of the box. Pants – this category has been simplified as well; only one family of pants in the Covert, which is essentially an tweaked Projekt pant - forward-canted, floating waist pad with a dual belt system (you pull down and it tightens, doesn’t go around your waist.) Chillwave/Polygiene liner. Projekt girdle and Bonafide pants carry over from 2012 to round out the line.
  3. Background: Thanks to my widow breaking I now am a proud owner of a DT1. RH W88 Zetterberg 85 flex cut down to 55-54" Recent sticks used: APX, Widow, DT1 Body Type: 5' 7" 250lbs Disclaimer: Im going to do a little copy and pasting from the widow review because there is A LOT similar here Blade: Great feel but not as good as the widow, just a tad bit less feel but still great overall. coming off of the apx especially with playing with a lighter roller puck this sticks feel is so good! I thought i had good feeling before but with this i know where the puck is on the blade. its stiffer than the widow but its not pingy or anything. and with my trusty curve i was able to put the puck where i needed it. half point off for having the clear coat on the blade though. tape has a hard time sticking to it so i hit it quick with a light coat of the krylon non skid spray and now its perfect. also another half point off because for roller i want that perfect feel. 9.0/10 Shaft/Flex: Flex feel compared to the 87 APX cut to the same length felt whippy, compared to the widow its a tad bit stiffer after cutting it down. As a big guy i needed a tiny bit of shooting to square up but after a quick skate i loved it! real low kick and it let me take shots with less effort than the apx. the apx wanted someone to really rip into it, the DT1 does not. the shaft has a bit more shoulder than the APX and a tiny bit more than the widow which i also thought would be bad but im liking that too. The shoulders fit my palms better than say the apx and i get a better grip that way also the stick doesnt roll in my hands when shooting like the apx. but its not too big like the easton RS sticks where i cant wrap my hands around it right. The flex really stiffens up when cut short too but still loads easy. 10/10 Stickhandling/receiving passes: Im not a big stick handler but i can do it a little easier thanks to the feel of the blade. My passing used to be good, legitimately good, but now they are superb! touch passes get exactly where they need to be with just the right umph. 9.5/10 Shooting: Hard, fast, and on target. I couldnt be happier. i took a couple of shots against the board and my teammates turned around to look at what just slammed against the boards to see me shooting there. thats a good sign. on one of my missed shot that hit the boards i heard the opposite goalie mumble "wow, glad that didnt hit me" as i rolled by. though the trick here is to let the stick do the work. really, just let it. when i try to power shots in i usually get a stinker and the puck just trickles forward. as for slappers this is one of the few sticks i can take a good velocity shot with, as in when i hit the glass i got that glass shattering, whip cracking sound that you hear come from NHL shots. My aim is still off but i rarely take a slapshot so im not going to worry. With one timers are nice and have a good snap. I thought the widow had a good release but this thing snaps to it. there were a couple of shots i took in traffic that i thought had no chance but i got them off and with a good velocity. 10/10 Weight and balance: as light as a top tier stick can be. balance is perfect for me, even after cutting. 10/10 Durability: Whatever Warrior did to up the fortitude in these sticks worked. Only a couple games in and where my Widow and even the apx would be chipped already this stick looks like new. 10/10 Intangibles: The diamond texture (dont want to call it a grip bc its on both the grip and non grip versions) is great, you dont notice it and it doesnt restrict you at all when you need it but it definitely gave me a little more of a grip when needed it and filled my hand nicely. I didnt think i would like this but its nice. The clear coating is ok on the shaft but ton the blade im nto a fan, i wish more people had that sandpaper grip texture on the blade like bauer and easton. Like I said, nothing a quick thin coat of the krylon non-skid couldnt take care of. 8/10 Conclusion: I really didnt think it could get better than the widow but its durability made me look elsewhere. Before buying a different stick the DT1 came into the mail just before my game and i couldnt be happier. Though I rather have the better feel of the widows blade over the extra stiffness, I do realize this is for the durability of the stick overall. I much rather have a stick thats a tiny bit less sensitive than have one that breaks the 4th game in. Hands down the best stick I have ever used! 66.5/70 = 9.5/10 A real winner here guys and I honestly can't wait to see what the dt1lt/st sticks bring.
  4. 2012 Warrior DT1 Personal Specs 6'1" 220lbs RW Jr. and College Experience Timeframe: 40-50 hours Aesthetics: Warrior has toned down the overall graphics and 'flashiness' seen on many previous models. The black and white color scheme is subtle and quite conservative. 10/10 Weight/balance: The DT1, like many other sticks in this price range, is extremely light. With their 'True 1' technology they've figured out a way to create an ideal balance not found in many of the fused OPS's. Given how light the stick is, if it was blade heavy you'd know instantly. 10/10 Performance: This is where I've seen the most improvement vs the Widow. With the flex point lower on the stick my shots seems to load and release far quicker and easier than with older Warrior models. I'm finding that even with a stiff flex my snap shots are crisp and clean. Slap shots are solid as always. True to Warrior's claims, the stick flexes like a bow, at the hands and bottom. It takes a few shots/passes to get used to, but once you figure out how to take advantage of this the stick really shines. 9/10 Puck handling: If there was one complaint I have with this stick it's with the 'pop' or 'crispy' nature of the blade. At times firm passes are difficult to control because they seem to bounce off the blade. I've adjusted and have found this problem easy to overcome. The 'out of box' first time experience can be frustrating initially if you're not prepared. 7/10 Durability: Durability has been typical of a Warrior. I'm no longer worried each time a take a one-timer that my stick is going to snap. Both my Easton RS's snapped on one-timers after a few games. I've never been easy on sticks given my size and style of game, however the DT1 has stood strong. The blade hasn't split or fade, and thus far there are no cracks. In my opinion one of the most important aspects of a stick that is expected to hold up is it's ability to maintain it's proper flex. I've found over and over that my sticks that last more than three months lose their flex and become to whippy. (My friends know that too and love my hand-me-downs). Thus far I haven't felt the stick go soft. The flex has stayed consistent which is a huge plus. The paint on the graphics, like all sticks, chips and flakes after a few games, but in my opinion that is to be expected. 9/10 Conclusion: Overall I'm very excited about the DT1. Warrior is so confident we the consumers will love it they've offered the 30 day unconditional guarantee If you don't like it, you can return it. I figured that if a company is willing to invest this much into their brand something great must be going on. It was a risk I was willing to take and I've been a very happy customer. Take note of one item, the stick comes 63", one to two inches longer than most sticks. As a taller player I was happy about this, however pay attention to your preferred flex if you'll be cutting the stick down more than normal. Overall Score: 9/10
