Warrior’s Alpha QX5 hockey stick is for the casual player looking for an affordable option that still contains some solid, high-level technologies in a low-kick model.
- Quick Strike technology for an accurate release
- Sabre Taper for a stable blade
- True 1 Phantom Feel for improved balance
- Ergo shaft shape for an enhanced feel
- Pro grip for optimum hand control
- Minimus Carbon for a solid construction
While the QX5 is Warrior’s least expensive model in the Alpha line, it still proves to contain some top features in its overall construction, staying true to Warrior’s commitment to a unique design and excellent performance features. The QX5 uses Warrior’s Quick Strike technology, a new, expanded low kick-point that provides effortless loading for a more accurate and powerful release. When combined with the Sabre taper, which creates a torsionally stiff extended mid-low arc, you will experience a more stable blade and enhanced accuracy while improving your shot.
The QX5 also features the True 1 Phantom Feel, a true one-piece stick design, so that you can experience improved balance throughout the stick while working on your game. The one-piece construction is a staple in top models across the market, so even if you’re a casual player, you can experience the balance and feel of a supremely constructed stick.
The benefits of solid construction continue with the Ergo shaft shape and Pro grip technology. This unique, ergonomic contour shaped shaft fits comfortably in your hand, which is complemented by the tacky soft feel of the Pro grip. These technologies combine to enhance puck control and overall feel, giving you confidence to make those tape to tape passes and to work on your stickhandling.
The Alpha QX5 uses Minimus Carbon, a flat carbon-composite weave design, for the overall construction of the stick. This stick uses a lower grade material compared to the other sticks in the line (the Alpha QX uses Minimus Carbon 1000, for example), but it still provides you with a balanced, durable option for this price point.
Warrior uses innovation and great technologies throughout the Alpha line, providing consistent options for any level of player. The QX5 offers a solid construction and many top features for the casual players looking to improve their skills.
