Brand new for the 2019-2020 season is the Warrior Alpha DX Intermediate Hockey Stick from Warrior Hockey. This second iteration of the Alpha stick line features upgrades made to both the shaft as well as the blade making the Alpha DX Hockey Stick one of Warrior’s most advanced to date!
Not only has the technology changed within the Alpha stick line, but so has the colorway, now featuring a sleeker, predominantly grey look. The top third of the stick features the most color, a neon yellow-green color, with a small DX logo at the center. Moving down, a ghosted-out Alpha DX logo can be found on top of the carbon fiber type background of the shaft. The bottom third of the stick is a ghosted-out Warrior logo, with the back of the shaft featuring the neon yellow-green color.
Headlining the technology of the Alpha DX Hockey Stick is Warrior’s exclusive Sabre Taper Technology. This taper design, starting at the midpoint of the Warrior logo and extending to the top of the blade, combines a low kick-point with a stable and powerful release, making it a great option for players who like to take quick snapshots and heavy slapshots as well!
The Alpha DX Hockey Stick consists of Warrior’s most advanced version of their True1 Phantom feel! This true one-piece build process creates a balanced and lightweight feel, maximizing control and responsiveness during all types of in-game situations. This iteration has been improved upon, making it Warrior’s lightest and strongest true one-piece build.
The material used for the True1 construction is Warrior’s new Minimus Carbon 1400 material. This is a flat weave carbon design that is highly lightweight and durable! Furthermore, this material is more dynamic and elastic than ever before, providing players with superior feel in all aspects of a hockey game. Moving to the blade, the Alpha DX Hockey Stick uses a FuelCore Blade. This lightweight polymer blade core enhances puck feel and control, helping players get the puck of their blade as quickly as possible! Giving the blade added durability and strength is a composite layering wrapped around an inner core, helping to prevent breakdown of materials in the blade.
On the comfort aspect, the Alpha DX Hockey Stick offers an Ergo Shaft Shape. This ergonomic contour shaft shape is designed to fit more comfortably and securely into players’ hands. In turn, this design helps enhance control of the stick during stickhandling and shooting. Additionally, a textured zone coupled with a tacky soft grip, known as Apex Grip, has been added to the shaft providing ultimate control and feel.
Thanks to the Sabre Taper and improved shaft material, the Alpha DX Hockey Stick is ready to strike anytime, anywhere. Whether you are a shifty forward who takes quick snapshots or a defenseman who takes slapshots from the blue line, the Warrior Alpha DX Intermediate Ice Hockey Stick is primed and ready for any in-game situation!
