Warrior Pro Stock Shafts

Hockeymonkey currently has a great deal on warrior pro stock dolomite and ak-27 shafts. I'm on the cusp of ordering a pair of dolomites, and was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with any of these, and if there are any serious draw backs to ordering a pro stock shaft besides the variations in flex and weight.

No warranty.

They are about half the price though. TBLfan can give better insight on the actual shafts themselves. I know he ordered some. I was ready to, but after shipping and handling they were less than 20 bucks cheaper then the retail version.

I use a dolomite, pretty good stick. I'm a defenseman, and I find my slapshots are alot harder with it. the Starskie is good as well.

It was around 20 bucks. It put the price of one shaft just below $80. I've seen the retail versions go around $95ish.

I believe it's free shipping with orders over $149.

Starskies are repainted Dolomites. My second Starskie was labeled Dolomite on the inside of the shaft.

My buddy got one, 320 flex, feels like about a 75 flex. From what I gather, add about 5 flex to the Hockey Monkey chart. I'm considering ordering one and a couple pro stock blades (retail Dolos go around here for $120 USD).

is there any risk of varying lengths amongst pro stock shafts?

Lol too funny, I just came to the site to ask this same question Thinking of ordering a Dolomite myself, but was wondering how the pro stock differed from regular.

Since I live close enough I went out and bought one a couple of weeks ago and even though I've only used it twice I really like it. I got a 260 flex and I'm not quite sure exactly the stiffness but I think it feels like about a 100 flex to me. They had a 280 flex and it felt even stiffer.

280 on the warrior scale should actually feel a little less stiff than the 260. They estimate the 260 at about a 95 and the 280 at about a 90.

Would anyone happen to know if there is a right handed warrior pro stock pattern that is similar to a retail sakic.

The "polar fibre" is an uncoated shaft, incase anyone was curious. Apparently it feels rough and a lot like hockey tape.

I called up and they are all the most recent model, with the teal lettering instead of the hideous orange.

And since it is hockey monkey, you can expect to be royally screwed on shipping.

I'm still deciding between a Dolomite, XXX-Lite, v.10 catapult (which I hear are flimsy as hell), and stealth CNT for a new stick.

the polar fibre feels like a very fine sand paper. So all three are colored the way the old nipple grip was with the blue lettering?

The lady on the phone said they are all the most recent year of the Dolomite. Which does mean the blue lettering, however I hear the nipple grip has the teal coloring in a lot more places than the non grip.

It's a sleek looking stick, that's for sure. But I really wish I could take a few shots with one before I decide on it. *big sigh*

Fyi

The Polarfibere is a type of grip Innovative used. It's more like a texture grip but it does resemble sandpaper to a certain extent. Decent option for those who like a grip but don't care for the tacky feel of clear grip coating.

Sounds like it will chew up the gloves something awful.

Actually, not really. It's not coarse enough to do any real damage.

They called me this morning to inform me that my 80 flex PF is out of stock. So I asked for anything lower than 85 and she said they had a 70 flex nipple grip, rofl. I took it. So now I got a 70 flex and 95 flex nipple grip on the way.

I'll find out which I like more, price was a bargain either way.

But for anyone who might be interested in the 70 flex pro nipple grip, maybe give them a call. Doesn't show on the website but apparently had one for me.
