- Ergo shaft shape for better puck handling
- Apex Grip for increased control
When purchasing a new hockey stick, there are many features to consider that will have an impact on your game, but kick point should be your first focus when making your choice. If you’re unsure which kick point is best for your shot, visit your local Pure Hockey for an accurate assessment. The 2019 Alpha line is comprised of low-kick point sticks, ideal for players who most often take quick-motion shots, shoot close to the net, and need a quick release over pure power.
To enhance the low-kick point, Warrior includes their Sabre Taper in the DX5 stick. This trusted, top-end feature is found throughout the 2019 Alpha stick line, and offers a combination of low-kick response with a stable and powerful release, resulting in an easy-to-load design that produces quick and accurate shots.
For the construction of the Alpha DX5, Warrior includes their True 1 Phantom Feel technology. This feature provides players with a light and strong one-piece stick, offering good balance and control during play. Warrior also uses Minimus Carbon to further strengthen the shaft and enhance the feel of the stick. While Warrior reserves their higher-grade Minimus Carbon material for the upper-price point sticks, this feature still provides the right feel for casual or new-to-hockey players.
The Alpha DX5 also includes an Ergo shaft shape, providing a contoured design so the stick fits comfortably and securely in your hands for enhanced puck handling; and the Apex Grip for a tacky soft feel that helps you to lock in for improved control.
While the Warrior Alpha DX5 hockey stick is built for players who skate around once per month, these skaters should definitely consider moving up to a higher-end stick if they want to experience the excellent performance benefits that come with a top-of-the-line Warrior stick. But for those occasional or new-to-hockey players who are looking for a quality stick at a great value, the DX5 proves to be a great option.
