because someone who paid for a WARRIOR wants to get a WARRIOR, if they wanted a CCM stick, they would have bought one.

Especially since a Dolomite will run you more then a Vapor XX.

Kind of like going out and buying a Ferrari and finding out it's really a Ford painted to look like a Ferrari.

Horrible comparison! A ford would be like one of those kohos with a plastic blade they sell at sports authority.

...but what if it doesn't perform for you? What if you like Dolomites, and not Royales, Vectors, XVs, etc.. What if you've tried all those sticks and prefer the Dolo. Then when you buy your Dolo, and don't like it only to find out its actually a XV or Royale and you've wasted your money?

I've been using a Dolomite tapered shaft paired with a Warrior blade and it's the best combo I've every used.

Not really a Warrior issue but since they bought out Innovative...

What's the opinion of the WinnWell g500 stick? Supposedly it's an Inno stick, either an 1100 or Novius.

Check mod squad hockey .com out, I think I read there not very durable sticks, but there definately made by Inno, which makes them one of the best you can buy.

Yeah they're Inno sticks--1100, Novius, some Vapors too. You really would need to go to the shop itself to look at the stickers inside the shaft. I called Perani's up on it before and decided not to buy also because of the fact that the curves are semi-grab bag.

I looked at a few. They had a sticker inside that said P10. That's all, nothing that just said "Hi, I'm an Inno Novius." Not sure what I'm looking for in there.

The sticker I saw was just inside the top, you'll see it if you pull the plug out of the end. Dunno what else is supposed to be in there.

Considering they are all made by the same company in the same plant using the same materials they are basically the same stick minus the blade pattern. Its been known for a few years that Inno was making other companies sticks for them. When it comes down to it dolomite/1100/XX are all the same stick with a different name and pattern on them. Thats its. There is difference in the materials used or they way they are made.

Not really. My XX and Warrior feel completely different.

Sticks while being made in the same plant are made to the requested specs.

P10 means its a Gagne curve if I remember correctly. He uses Bauer, right? Pretty sure he uses a Vapor XX or Vapor XXX. Either way, you might not get that stick, but no doubt your getting his curve.

The blade is completely different. I believe the shaft is very similar if not the same but the blade is quite different.

Shaft feels different - shape and size. The Vapor has more of that convex shape (hope that the right term) to it.

Honestly haven't seen a dolomite, because my LHSs don't carry warrior. Which is another one of my points about if I buy a dolomite, I want a dolomite. Simply because I don't have access to one, I have plenty of access to vapors so if I ever decide to buy a warrior I want a warrior not a vapor.

I believe you should get what you pay for. My Vapor XX isn't a bad stick. It just doesn't feel as solid as my Warrior does. To it's credit, I think it's balanced slightly better.

P106 = Gange Curve.
I have been using this stick since I started to play hokcey at a competitive level...great curve, perfect for the sweetest saucer pass.

The Warrior -Starsky is a crazy stick. Comparable to the inno 1100. it is light and has a solid feel. and its aallll red like Starskys cuda.

Anyone know if warrior will be coming out with the AK27 for retail? I know that Kovalev kaberle and Chara use it forsure. have yet to see it in stores.....let me know

The AK27 has been retail for almost a year now.

Oh, and Starskie drove a Ford Gran Torino. Pretty good pic here.
