Before hitting the ice, the first thing I noticed about Warrior's new Alpha QX stick was how balanced and light (410 grams) the stick feels in your hands.
I was able to get my hands on the QX early and give it a go. On the ice, I was really impressed with how quick the puck comes off the blade with little effort. It has a slightly higher kick point compared to the QRL which I was previously using but it defiantly does not affect how quickly you can get a shot off. The QX gave me a quick release with shots in tight and lot's of pop when leaning into a slap shot.
