Warrior Covert QR5T Intermediate Hockey Stick
New to Warrior’s 2022 lineup is the Covert QR5 Team hockey stick, which offers optimal durability and performance at a more affordable price point.
Stick Flex Profile
The Covert line is classified as a low to ultra-low kick point hockey stick, amplified by the QREdge taper near the hosel. The hexagonal shape is meant to enhance power and quick release, qualities that are essential to empower a low kick point. The hexagonal shape also includes more sides on the shaft, making that taper much more durable.
Shaft Construction & Stiffness
Warrior is well-known in the hockey and lacrosse worlds for constantly reworking their carbon construction and materials, and this stick’s shaft demonstrates their advancements in that area. Minimus Carbon UD is of Warrior’s own design and uses an incredibly light carbon fibre weave that was also found in the Alpha LX. The Revolutionary Lightweight Construction 188, or RLC 188, ensures the lightest carbon fibre and thermoplastic-toughened epoxy resin have been used in the sticks’ shaft to keep it light and ready to perform.
The QR5 Team stick is equipped with Warrior’s FuelCore blade, which involves composite layering and lightweight polymer for a truly durable blade. The use of FuelCore also increases pop on the puck when shooting or picking up a pass.
The QR5 Team stick takes a more retro approach in its design, opting for a white upper shaft coupled with a black lower shaft and blade. It also incorporates orange and blue accents, as well as the Covert, Warrior, and QR5 logos across the shaft.
Warrior implemented a soft tacky grip for a better and more solid hold on the stick. This is a popular grip style that will also help enhance your overall puck control.
