Best Warrior Stick?

Between the Dolemite, Kronik, Shogun, Mac Daddy im having a hard time deciding which to buy. Money isnt the issue just want to get a first hand account from some of the users.

I'd just get the Dolomite tapered shaft+blade. For all intents and purposes, it should perform like the Dolomite one piece stick but you'd be free to try different curves. And if the blade broke, it wouldn't be a big deal to just get a new one.

The Shogun is the price point stick, so I wouldn't expect it to be in the same performance level as the others.

It's between the Mac Daddy and the Dolomite. The Mac Daddy is a true one piece stick, while the Dolomite is a fused one piece.

I've used (still do) a few Dolomites always loved em. They held up great and perform just as well. Still use a Dolo 2 blade now.

I was looking at some of the curves and the Draper and Smyth curve look like my kind of curves. I would get the Shogun for pure aesthetic reasons its still almost a $200 stick $174 here at United Cycle in Edmonton.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for graphics too. I currently have four pro stock Mission Fuel shafts and a Mission Fuel OPS sitting on my couch. If they weren't red and black, I probably wouldn't have them

The Shogun is Red & Black and has Japanese writing. Im actually leaning towards the Dolemite $210 the Draper pattern looks nice. I previously used a Warrior Royale with the Smyth pattern one of the best sticks I have ever used but its also the only stick that has broken on me like actually snapping at the shaft.

The Kronik is the best stick, correct me if I am wrong. Looks money, I am thinking about getting one over the summer.

I have the Shogun, 100 Flex, with the Weight curve. One thing I will say about the stick is the durability is great! It's a very tough stick. As for feel though, it is a bit poor. I like the weight curve since I'm a pass first person(I barely ever shoot....like ever...) and that draper curve scared the hell outta me, haha. I got a good deal on it though which is why I didn't bother to upgrade to something like the Kronik since usually the price points are a $50 difference. Anyway, I hope this helps.

If you asked Warrior, they would say the Kronik. If you asked real users, they would most likely say the Dolomite. Maybe Mac Daddy. I've got a Dolomite.

I would stay away from the Kronik, I got 3 of them pretty cheap and I snapped all 3 of them pretty quick. I play defense so i probably take more slapshots than most people, but I would say out of those 3 sticks I probably only got 8 games in. Which is pretty pathetic if you ask me. I currently have a nike/bauer vapor xxx and that thing has lasted me 40 something games already. I don't have any experience with the other warrior sticks but I would avoid kronik.

Good to know, I was looking Dolomite or Mac Daddy or Kronik...now I'll look for the 2 former.

Used both the dolomite and kronik. The kronik is blade heavy because of the "channels" and they are just a marketing scheme.

The dolo on the other hand is the best stick I have ever used. I have gone through only two which is pretty good for me. I love the performance and the balance.

haven't tried out the mac daddy which is the only other one in teh dolo's league

But I personally would go Dolo all the way.

I loved the performance of the Dolomite. Sadly, it only lasted me 4 games. It broke in half as I was attempting to poke check and hit the skate of a player I didn't see coming. It was surprising how easily it broke considering it didn't take much force.

I like the one that didn't pilfer from Innovative.

But honestly, Dolomites and the AK-27 are great sticks.

No, any standard blade will fit.

I have a Dolomite two piece and this is my third warrior stick after I broke the Mac Daddy on the blade(Was able to flip the stick though), broke a dolomite shaft after about 8 months and I bought a Pro-Stock Dolo Shaft and that one I just love. The feel of the sticks are just amazing.

Warrior Is All Looks

Warrior sucks.They just use good graphics and marketing schemes.The AK-27 is good,but all the others suck.Try going with Nike Bauer XXX-Lite,Easton s11 or S17, and A Mission Fuel(not the TI-PRO).

Their AK-27 and Dolomite are actually excellent sticks. Especially the Dolomite which is actually a solid design from Innovative (the company Warrior bought) repainted as a Warrior.

And lol @ recommending the S17. Now that is an Easton blunder. The Synergy SE's are still solid though.
