The 2022 Warrior Covert sticks are now available at Pure Hockey, and we have all the information you’ll need to decide which model is best for you. This year’s line of Covert QR5 hockey sticks boast a number of new features that will appeal to fans of Warrior sticks and previous Covert models, including improved versions of Warrior’s Fuelcore blade, available on the higher-end QR5 Pro and QR5 20 sticks.
The new Covert QR5 line consists of low-kick point sticks, best suited for players who frequently take quick-motion shots, shoot close to the net, and prefer 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, check out our guide on How to Buy a Hockey Stick or visit your local Pure Hockey store.
Warrior Covert QR5 Pro Hockey Stick
The new Warrior Covert QR5 Pro hockey stick is a true top-of-the-line model built for performance. Warrior’s Edge Taper design complements the low-kick point, and the Covert QR5 Pro offers excellent control and response for stickhandling, passing, and shooting. This taper design is exclusive to Warrior and drives flex energy through the hosel for an ideal combination of shot power and quick release.
The shaft also features Warrior’s Slide Grip, providing a textured zone for optimal grip and control, while the taper design ensures the stick fits comfortably and securely in hand.
The Covert QR5 Pro stick features the all new Fuelcore Ultra Blade, with a lightweight polymer core surrounded by Minimus Carbon 25 weave for enhanced durability, puck feel, and more pop when shooting. For the shaft, Warrior uses Minimus Carbon UD material. This makes the QR5 Pro stick shaft lighter and tougher than ever. The UD fiber creates a more efficient, lightweight stick with a highly responsive feel.
The Warrior Covert QR5 Pro is a lightweight and dynamic option, ideal for players who skate at least four or five 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 Covert QR5 20 Hockey Stick
The Warrior Covert QR5 20 hockey stick includes many of the same features as the Covert QR5 Pro, making this option a terrific value for the players looking for a high-end stick at a lower price point.
The QR5 20 stick features Warrior’s Edge Taper, a contoured design that optimizes the transfer of energy through the hosel for improved power and release. The Edge Taper along with Warrior’s Tacky Grip shaft surface will lock your hands in place for optimum grip, comfort, and control.
The Covert QR5 20 features the all-new Fuelcore Pro Blade, offering a lightweight polymer core surrounded by Minimus Carbon 6 weave for added durability and a finer feel. For the shaft, Warrior includes Minimus Carbon UD material. This is the top-end material also found in the QR5 Pro stick, making for a lighter and more durable shaft.
The Covert QR5 20 hockey stick is lightweight and responsive, ideal for players who skate three to four times per week and need a performance-level stick but at a lower price point.
Warrior Covert QR5 30 Hockey Stick
The Covert QR5 30 stick is built for the performance player who skates a couple times per week, but still wants some of the features of the higher-end Warrior hockey sticks.
Like the QR5 Pro, the Covert QR5 30 includes Warrior’s Edge Taper for a dynamic flex zone that drives energy through the hosel to optimize power and release. The Fuelcore Blade provides enhanced puck control and responsiveness, while the Minimus Carbon UD allows for a lighter and more durable stick.
Warrior also features the Slide Grip on the QR5 30 stick shaft, providing textured zones only where you need them to provide optimum grip and control and allow you to slide your hand for poke checks, faceoffs, and puck battles.
The Covert QR5 30 is a lightweight and responsive stick, ideal for players who skate a couple times per week and need a hockey stick with some high-end technologies at a great value.
Warrior Covert QR5 40 Hockey Stick
The Warrior Covert QR5 40, like the QR5 30, features some top-end features at a great value, making this model an excellent choice for the weekly player whose game calls for a low-kick point hockey stick.
The QR5 40 stick includes Warrior’s Edge Taper, Fuelcore Blade, Minimus Carbon UD fiber, and the Tacky Grip. These high-end features help to enhance the low-kick construction, and offer excellent performance benefits for this price point.
The Covert QR5 40 differs from the higher-end models by using a lower-grade carbon for the shaft construction. The R.L.C. 122 is a standard grade construction that helps with durability and the balance of the stick. While not as responsive as the higher-end QR5 sticks, the QR5 40 has a weight and feel that casual players will appreciate.
Warrior Covert QR5 50 Hockey Stick
The Warrior Covert QR5 50 stick rounds out the 2022 line, providing a great option for the occasional or new-to-hockey player.
The Covert QR5 50 includes some features found in the Covert QR5 Pro, like the Edge Taper and Minimus Carbon UD. This model features R.L.C. 111 construction. With these features built into a low-end stick, the Covert QR5 50 offers beginners and recreational players a solid hockey stick with good feel, and even some performance benefits when shooting and handling the puck. The QR5 50 also features the Tacky Grip to enhance your control.
While Warrior has built the Covert QR5 50 hockey stick 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 any of the higher-end models. But if you’re looking for a hockey stick at a lower price that still provides some quality features, the Covert QR5T is a great choice.
