Are you sure you want the franchise? I have both and I really prefer the AK27s, maybe you should think it over.

Who gives a crap if it is popular. If you like the equipment, then buy it.

I have the Warrior Hustler pants and they are excellent. They offer a lot of protection. They aren't the lightest pants though. They also run big.

How big are you talking? I'm in the market for new pants.

Actually I've changed my mind about Franchise, I ordered the pants but no gloves.

Last season I used the 10k glove, but the palms got really bad after just one season.
Don't know what glove to buy, the Eagle's look interesting.

The protective is a little overpriced, though I love my hustler shin guards. I think the gloves are fine where they are though. Especially now that they've added knit to the high wear areas.

If you're not looking in that price range for a glove I totally understand but if you're looking at PPFs, especially post-vaughn, they're the cat's pajamas.

Sent them back right away.

Warrior Franchise gloves has to be one of the industries finest line of gloves.

I've owned everything from Eastons to Eagles glove wise, and I love the Franchise model.

As for Warrior sticks, I am almost forced to buy them because they are the only manufactures which provide a very low lie (4 Lie), and I love the Vanek/Weight curve. As for durability i've never had a problem with the dolomite spyne model. Very durable and very nice stick.
However, i've been through 4 Warrior MacDaddy's (no longer in production) in less then a year. NEVER EVER buy a MacDaddy.



With all this being said I'm wondering if anyone knows if any other stick manufactures produce a stick with a lie less than 5? Thanks !

Are you sure those Warriors are actually a 4 lie? A lot of the 4's I've seen were actually 5's...their lies aren't "correct" per se...

But you should check out the Dolomite DD, it should be more durable and similar performance, maybe a little heavier. A two-piece would be the same as the one-piece, and last longer.

Couldn't tell you if it was exactly a 4 lie. However, the lie is noticably lower than any other patterns i've tried which have a 5 lie. I was able to determine this by the location of wear on my blade. Any stick i've used with a 5 lie or higher there was much more wear towards the heel of my blade.. With my Vanek 4 Lie the wear is directly in the middle making my blades last MUCH longer. (the reason I go with Warrior now)

Ahh, I loved my two-piece Easton Synthesis when I owned one years ago. I have looked to go with a 2-piece again a few times, but I can never find the blade pattern I want .

I'll definetly look into the Dolo DD when I'm in need of another stick. Might be awhile though haha. (Picked up 2 spynes for a price of 1)

Yep, here's the one piece and here's the blade...should be really close to the Synthesis in terms of performance, same as the MacDaddy but a little heavier and more durable near the blade.
