Warrior Johnson ?

Picked it up yesterday, i needed anew stick, my vapour x something feels abit chunky and way to whippy for me. The guy told me the johnson was very durable, its really light too... have any of you used it?

Thoughts? Thanks !

I have one. Mine is actuallly quite whippy (85 flex + wooden end plug), so I can't comment there, but like most Warrior sticks, it can take a pretty good beating. You probably got a pretty good deal on it too, I would think, as they're on closeout since they released the Swizzle (Johnson with a new paintjob), so that's a bonus.

Get "The Stroker" gloves and you will get a boat load of respect.

I've been using mine for 2 seasons and it's still going strong. As a previous poster said, it can take a beating! Great stick for the price, especially now.

The Johnson is the best stick I've ever had.

When my AK-27 broke I switched to a one piece Swizzle until I could get a new AK. I have a new AK and I'm still using the Swizzle. I really like it. It's light enough and has so far been pretty durable.

it's heavier than my S17 but it's also a lot cheaper!
I got mine on clearance for $50 from HockeyWorld.
used it for an entire practice last night and potted a lot of goals. went about 60% in shootout drills, even won a round!

That's cool... are they similar? The Warrior website said something about 21% increase in velocity or something?

Is it mid flex or low-mid flex?
