I've been using my custom Widow for about 3 weeks now and initial impressions : EXCELLENT puck feel, a bit more of a responsive and 'crisp' feel then the deadened wood-like feel on a One95. Weight and balance are non issues, love the shaft dimensions. Really have to adjust for slappers though, the ultra-low kickpoint will do that to you.
I've heard that some people have had some issues with the blade cracking on the heel, but these are the same people who have had repeated issues with other sticks so at the moment, nothing seems amiss with the Widow's durability. Nothing stands out either.
Warrior's old Toews curve in 2011 is the same as their old Draper and current Kopitar; Bauer's P92, Easton Hall and CCM Ovechkin/RNH
Bauer's current Toews is essentially a shorter P92 with a rounded square toe and slightly more toe curve on it.
