New for 2019 from Warrior is the Ritual V1 line. The V1 line is the successor to the popular CR line, and in it, we see some new technology and materials to boost performance. This year Warrior will be expanding to four different price points, the V1 Pro+, the V1 Pro, the V1 Sr+, and the V1 Sr. Below I will go over the features of the sticks, as well as provide some insight to which model will be the best for you.
Below will be a little guideline to help you choose the best-suited stick for you.
Ritual V1 Pro+
If money is not an issue, then I would definitely go with the V1 Pro+, being it’s the highest price point for the Ritual sticks it will have the best performance. The stick will provide you with truly elite performance. The stick will be one of the stiffest on the market rivalling pro sticks from other top brands. The build of the stick is extremely solid with the use of Minimus Carbon G 1200 and 14k Carbon Weave throughout the stick. If you are looking for a top of the line performance stick, look no further than the Ritual V1 Pro+.
Ritual V1 Pro
A slight step down in price is the Ritual V1 Pro. If you’re someone who is not exactly looking to break the bank, while still picking up an elite stick this may be the perfect stick for you. The stick has many of the same features as the V1 Pro+ such as VibexLite, TwinSpar Technology, ImpactFiber Layer, HiFused Construction and SlideGrip Technology. What's missing is the 14K Carbon weave as well as the use of Minimus Carbon G 1200 instead, Minimus Carbon 1000 is used which was seen in the Ritual CR1 in the previous Ritual line. The V1 Pro is a phenomenal stick for being a second price point if your budget is a little shy for the V1 Pro+.
Ritual V1 SR+
At the next price point is the Ritual V1 SR+, this stick is a great option for those who don't want to drop the money on a pro level stick but would like an upgrade from the entry level stick. The V1 SR+ retains the same pro features seen in the V1 Pro. Although the V1 SR+ uses Minimus Carbon 800 instead of 1000 causing it to come in at a higher weight.
Ritual V1 SR
The V1 SR is the entry-level model stick for the Ritual line. Again, the stick has a lot of the pro features seen in the other sticks in this line, although we see Minimus Carbon 600 used again to make the stick slightly heavier as well missing on this stick is the SlideGrip Technology. This stick is a good option for those who don't want to break the bank while purchasing their stick.
