With the 2019 Warrior Alpha sticks available for purchase, Pure Hockey is giving you all the information you’ll need to decide which model is best for you. Warrior fans will love the advances made in the new Alpha line, with a variety of new technologies and performance benefits to help bring their skills to the next level.
The new Alpha line consists of low-kick point sticks, best suited for players who most often take quick-motion shots, shoot close to the net, and need a quick release over pure power. If you’re unsure which kick point fits your game best, or you’re looking for an accurate assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey store.
Warrior Alpha DX Stick
The new Warrior Alpha DX hockey stick is a true top-of-the-line model built for performance. Constructed with Warrior’s Dynamic Strike technology, this stick is built to offer excellent control and response for stickhandling, passing, and shooting. To further enhance these performance benefits, Warrior implements their best technologies in the Alpha DX.
One such feature is the Sabre Taper, used to complement the low-kick point. This technology is Warrior’s exclusive taper design, combining the low-kick response with a stable and powerful release. This easy-to-load construction allows you to take fast and accurate shots from anywhere in the offensive zone.
Warrior also includes some key technologies for the construction of the blade and shaft. The Alpha DX features the Fuelcore Blade, offering a lightweight polymer core surrounded by composite layering for a stronger design, enhanced puck feel, and more pop when shooting. For the shaft, Warrior uses Minimus Carbon 1400 material and their True 1 Phantom Feel. The Minimus Carbon 1400 has a lightweight flat weave carbon design for a dynamic and responsive feel, and the True 1 Phantom construction offers players a true one-piece stick for enhanced balance and more control.
Also included is Warrior’s Ergo shaft shape, a contoured design that fits comfortably and securely in your hands, and the Apex Grip Texture which provides a textured zone coupled with a tacky soft grip finish that locks easily into your hands for maximum control.
The Alpha DX is a lightweight and dynamic option, ideal for players who skate four to five-plus times per week and need a high-performing stick. But any player, regardless of level or frequency of play, can benefit from purchasing this top-end model.
Warrior Alpha DX Pro Stick
This year’s Warrior Alpha DX Pro hockey stick includes many of the same features and technologies as the Alpha DX, making this option a terrific value for the players who are looking for a high-end stick at a lower price point.
The Alpha DX Pro features the Sabre Taper for a quick and powerful release; the Fuelcore blade for enhanced puck feel and more shot pop; the True 1 Phantom Feel for lightweight control and response; and the Ergo shaft shape so the shaft fits comfortably in your hands.
For the shaft, Warrior includes Minimus Carbon 1000 material. While this carbon weave design is lower quality than the Minimus Carbon 1400, it still provides a lightweight feel and solid strength for players who may not need the lightest and most dynamic shaft, but still want the high-quality feel to help enhance their game.
The DX Pro also includes Warrior’s Apex Grip, providing a tacky soft feel in your hands for improved control.
Warrior Alpha DX3 Stick
The new Warrior Alpha DX3 hockey stick is built for the performance player who skates two to three-plus times per week, but still offers some of Warrior’s top technologies, making it a great value.
Like the DX Pro, the Alpha DX3 includes the Sabre Taper for a dynamic flex zone; True 1 Phantom Feel for an excellent one-piece construction; the Fuelcore Blade for enhanced puck control and responsiveness; and the Ergo shaft shape for a comfortable and secure feel. With these high-end technologies, Warrior shows their commitment to offer every player impressive features to help their on-ice skills.
The Alpha DX3 stick includes Minimus Carbon 800 material for the shaft construction. This flat carbon weave design isn’t as lightweight or high-strength as the Minimus Carbon 1400 or 1000, but still provides performance-level skaters a good overall feel for stickhandling, passing, and shooting.
Warrior also features the Apex Grip on the DX3, providing players the type of surface they’re looking for to control the stick during play.
Warrior Alpha DX4 Stick
The Warrior Alpha DX4, like the DX3, features some top technologies at a great value, making this model an excellent choice for the weekly player whose game calls for a low-kick point stick.
Included in the DX4 is Warrior’s Sabre Taper, True 1 Phantom Feel, Fuelcore Blade, Ergo shaft shape, and the Apex Grip. These high-end features help to enhance the low-kick construction, and offer excellent performance benefits for this price point.
Warrior differentiates the Alpha DX from the higher-end models by using a lower-grade flat weave carbon for the shaft construction. The Minimus Carbon 400, a quality material in its own right, has a little less balance and will give this stick a little more weight than the Alpha DX, DX Pro, and DX3. Still a dynamic material, the Minimus Carbon 400 offers a good feel that casual players will appreciate when they hit the ice.
Warrior Alpha DX5 Stick
The Warrior Alpha DX5 stick rounds out the 2019 line, providing a great option for the occasional or new-to-hockey player.
This model includes some technologies found in the Alpha DX, like the Sabre Taper, True 1 Phantom Feel, and Ergo shaft shape. With these features built into a low-end stick, the Alpha DX5 offers beginners and recreational players a solid construction, a good overall feel, and even some performance benefits when shooting and handling the puck. The DX5 also features the Apex Grip to enhance your control.
While Warrior has built the Alpha DX5 for players who are just starting out or who skate infrequently, the beginner or occasional player shouldn’t feel limited to this model or price point. If you’re a casual player who wants to experience top-of-the-line benefits to help take your game to the next level, you can certainly consider upgrading to the Alpha DX or DX Pro. But if you’re looking for a hockey stick at a lower price that still provides some quality features, the Alpha DX5 is a great choice.
The 2019 Alpha stick line includes high-quality models for every level of player. So if you want a high-end stick for ultimate performance, or an affordable option that will help you develop your skills, Warrior has you covered.
