Most sticks tend to flex just below the bottom hand (mid kick) or near the blade (low kick). To my knowledge only the Nexus and Vapor flex between the hands (high kick). I loved the Vapor and just got a Nexus.

With the Warrior, I'm curious to see how a stick that is fairly stiff overall but in a whipper flex performs.
Good to see this feedback. I was considering a Nexus soon. I'm similar to your build (5'10", 205-210) and also don't drop my hands much at all when I shoot.
