Warrior Alpha AK27 Collection – Limited Release – Line Details

AK27GOLD

By DT – Warrior Hockey Marketing

We’re at it again. With the success of our Covert Throwback line last fall, we set out to capture another iconic Warrior stick graphic and put a modern twist on it for fall 2017.

One could argue that, aside from the original Dolomite, there isn’t a more recognizable or iconic Warrior graphic than the gold and black AK27 from 2007. Crisp. Clean. Bright. And Different. In other words, everything Warrior Hockey is.

Even though the original AK was a two-piece design, we’ve updated the graphic to incorporate the elements of the Alpha line and brought the AK27 up today’s technology on the Alpha QX platform.

Here are the details and where you can find the Alpha AK27 sticks, starting October 28th in limited release.

  1. “The AK27 SL features the same technology package as our Alpha QX Pro stick from this year, but is 40 grams lighter”

    The QX pro has the exact same technology as the top line QX, so if it’s the same weight as the top line QX, isn’t it a QX with the ak27 graphics on, but for 100cad$ less?

    I’ll be buying two ha!

    1. QX Pro is not the same as the QX. Technology carries through but the materials are not the same (see Minimus Carbon 1000 –> 800). The AK27 SL is not the same weight as the QX. As is stated in the blog, it’s a QX Pro that has been lightened (SL = Super Light).

    2. Ok here’s a weird question for you warrior. Any idea when these us retailers are going to get their shipments? I called my local proshop and they have no idea LOL. I have the original AK27 stick and want the remake for my arsenal as well. Thanks

      1. ok thanks I was checking as of today…. neither of the retailers local to me have them available for sale. Hockey House in Hatfield PA and Ice Works Pro Shop in Aston. just wanted to check with Warrior I’m looking forward to those sticks

  2. “The AK27 SL features the same technology package as our Alpha QX Pro stick from this year, but is 40 grams lighter”

    Apart from the graphics, whats the difference between this stick and the normal QX?

  3. This simply has to be a rebadged Pro, which isn’t a bad thing. The 40 grams is probably the result of the SL being a 60″ rather than a 63″ stick like the Pro. Now the question is if it is the same except for the 3″ is it just a Pro cut off or was it engineered to be a 60″ stick since an X Flex stick at 63 will play stiffer if cut 3″ no matter what marketing departments say.

      1. Interesting PODCAST – thanks! There are many NHL guys playing the Alpha now. Quick adoption and some I noticed changed brands to use it. My son loves the graphics on the SL. He currently uses the QR1 and has used the DT/QR line for 5 years. How is the blade on the SL versus the QR? Is it livelier, more damped or about the same? Just from catching passes perspective, hot blades are less forgiving. He did not like the CCM Speedburner for example. I think he’ll otherwise do OK with the change to the higher kick point if he got it. He’s currently in an intermediate.

      2. The blade on the AK27SL is the same as the QX line of stick. It plays slightly stiffer than the QRL line.

      3. Is the blade and/or the feel of the blade on the QX line the same as the QRL line or is it different and how so. Is it hotter/less forgiving? There’s not too many comments on the QX floating around yet so I’m sorry for the questions.

  4. Where would be the best place to look if I want to buy this Alpha AK27 stick.
    I have been looking around and have had no luck finding even one Alpha ak27 (black and gold) stick. Are they already out of stock?
