The Warrior Covert DT4 Grip Composite Stick has implemented a stiffer and more responsible blade than you may be used to using. The Soft-Core X Blade, also used in Warrior's MoJo and Vandal sticks, resists torque and allows for improved feel. The improvement comes in the UniSpar Reinforcement, which makes the stick durable and able to take more punishment from shots or slashes.The Dagger Taper Technology maintains the durable feel throughout the shaft, but allows for a stronger flex at the lower shaft and blade area, allowing for an extremely low kick point. The puck will also seem larger to the puck carrier with the design of the taper area and the thin blade, allowing for improved puck sight.The True 1 Construction allows the Covert DT4 to remain lightweight, as both the blade and shaft are manufactured together. This cuts out the step of molding the two parts together, keeping the same weight throughout the entire stick.
