The 2022 Warrior Covert QR5 Pro Hockey stick has arrived and is the newest installment of Warrior’s top of the line Covert model. This addition to the line continues to build off the previous QRE 10 stick from 2020 and offers some key upgrades.
- Edge Taper for explosive release
- Minimus Carbon UD for a lighter and more durable stick
- R.L.C. 188 a revolutionary lightweight construction
- Fuelcore Ultra for increased durability and feel.
- Slide Grip for optimum grip and control
When purchasing a new hockey stick, it is important to place a focus on kick point. Finding the right kick point - where the stick flexes most when shooting - will help take your shot to the next level. If you’re unsure which kick point is best for your game, visit your local Elevate Sporting for an accurate assessment. The Warrior Covert line offers a low kick point for a quick release, enhanced by some of Warrior’s top technologies.
Passed down from the top-of-the-line Covert QRE 10, is the Edge Taper. The low kick point on this unique shaft construction with angular edge construction drives the flex energy through the hosel allowing for maximum power and release. The geometry of this stick improves response, is more stable, and plays with more strength. The QR5 Pro geometric design is attractive and will help players load up for hard shots with almost no effort while preventing the blade face from opening up.
Continuing to improve on the previous generation’s technology, Warrior constructed the Covert QR5 Pro with Minimus UD Carbon fiber. Built with high strength, lightweight unidirectional carbon construction, the QR5 Pro’s shaft is lighter and more durable than before.
New for the 2022 Covert QR5 Pro stick is RLC 188, a revolutionary Lightweight Construction. This is Warrior’s highest-grade construction and uses the most advanced material selection and processing technologies to produce an extremely lightweight and durable stick. RLC 188 combines the latest in modern carbon composites technology using lower weight fibers and thermoplastic toughened epoxy resin to provide optimal performance and balance.
In the blade, Warrior uses their all new redesigned FuleCore Ultra construction. This technology reduces the breakdown of materials in the blade and increases the durability and feel. The lightweight polymer blade optimizes puck feel and provides pop for shooting. Warrior also included Minimus Carbon 25 weave around the core, making the blade lighter and more durable.
For the shaft, Warrior is using a slide grip that has texturized zones only where you need them. Removing texture from areas you don’t need it makes it easier slide your hand for poke checks, face offs and puck battles.
The Covert QR5 Pro continues the evolution of the top-of-the-line Warrior low kick stick. The QR5 Pro combines technologies that provide unmatched load and release, while giving players optimal feel and durability.
