hahaha. it came the other day. i was playing with a langenbrunner ak27 and this is the kubina ak27. i HATE it. the blade is HUGE. the curve is a heel curve which i dont really like, and theres no flex. i feel like i was hitting the puck with a brick at the bottom of the shaft. im really bummed.

They're calling it the Warrior 'AK' no 27.

I got to take a look at it at my LHS and I was very disappointed. The graphics aren't as sharp as the shaft, the grip isn't the same, and it wasn't well balanced at all. I wouldn't touch this stick at $150.

Thing to keep in mind, how does it compare to other sticks in that price range?

Warrior did change the grip to what they're calling "crushed velvet grip". They are touting it as durable and a solid performer.

bringing back this thread

the AK27 OPS have been hitting the stores in my area.
I couldn't resist, picked one up yesterday. I went with a Kovalchuk pattern in the 85 flex. soon as I it got it in my hands, it felt perfect to me.
can't wait to try it out. playing 2 games next week

oh and its not AK27 anymore...only AK

Everyone please be aware that the pro-stock AK27 is no where near the AK that has been hitting stores.

Pro-stock AK27s are repainted dolomites that pros have been using. Retail AK sticks are lower quality sticks that are price points. A pro would not be using that.

From what I have read, the AK OPS is built to the original Dolomite specs. If true, hard to call it a price point stick.

It's not even close to an original dolo. It fells closer to the Royale than Dolomite but it has the AK27 "velvet" grip on it. Remember, basically the only thing that has changed on the Dolomite(Starskie) is the foam in the blade and graphics.

The AK27 OPS being used in the pros is almost always a Dolomite, I say "almost" but I've never seen one that wasn't a Dolo.

RH pro stock AK27s are tough to find. LH can be had all day.

I'll keep an eye out.

this website doesnt quite have what i'm looking for, but it is still pretty cool. thanks alot.

EDIT: i take that back. after browsing the site, i decided to just give them a call and they had in stock EXACTLY what i was looking for. guy i talked to on the phone was totally cool. the stick wasnt on the webstore yet, he took pictures of it and emailed them to personally. guy really went to bat for me. wish this site nothing but the best.
