With the Warrior QRE Pro Team hockey stick, you get the best in value, durability and performance at a great price. The easy and quick load time for your shot allows you to release those nasty one timers or quick wrist or snap shots quicker. The energy transfer through the shaft is a result of Warrior's Edge Quick Release design meant to transfer your energy into the bottom of the stick as the shaft tapers towards the bottom. The Minimus carbon 800 construction is lightweight carbon composite which also adds to the durability. A Pro Cortex Grip on the shaft is a textured surface with a tactile grip that aids in feel and control. Booking in at 466 grams, this could be one of the lightest sticks at this price.
