Diablo SE Stick
DetailsNew for 2012 – Diablo SE. This special edition of the premier Diablo stick barks louder and bites harder than any big dog yet. Does 108.8 ring a bell? In addition to the sweet science that is Dagger Taper Technology and a host of other proprietary technologies, the Diablo SE is available in two new unique color ways for spring: all-white with Crushed Velvet Grip and the black & yellow Matte Clear Grip.
Crushed Velvet Finish
This finish lowers the degree of hand grip from Soft Grip, but also allows for a separate hand feel on the shaft. Crushed Velvet is perfect for the player who would like a feel between Clear and Soft Grip with just enough tension and a nice soft finish up and down the shaft.
Carbon Elite Construction
Warrior's proprietary elite construction package is the ultimate combination of light weight and and power. High-modulus, low-weight aerospace-grade laminate provides strength under extreme flex, and most efficient energy transfer.
New shaft design using multilateral and omnidirectional fiber placement to reinforce the shaft internally and protect it from cracking or fatigue. Continuous fibers create a network of carbon strands that help resist slash or puck impact.
Nipple Grip Finish
Improved grip nipples are firmer for increased tactile grip on the hands. Less hand slip provides better stick-handling control and improved power transfer into the stick on large load shots. Raised nipples also avoid shaft torque, improving shot accuracy and consistency.
Dagger Taper Flex
Dagger Taper Technology keeps the hand area stiffer and allows the stick to flex lower in the shaft and blade area as well as in the upper handle. This loads and releases the shaft and blade together for more flex and better pop on slap shots, snap shots, and wrist shots.
Fused One-Piece Construction
Molded stick in two separate processes where shaft and blade are fused by heat and pressure in lower area of stick. This connection process leads to consistent flex and increased torsional strength.
Clear Grip Finish
Clear Grip is exactly that, a clear finish that doesn't get between you and your shaft. Allowing the most slip and slide for your money, this is for the dangler who wants lightning-fast hand movement on the stick.
Aggressive dagger taper line view accentuates the flex characteristics of the stick geometry. Dagger taper allows the hosel and blade area to increase flex and remain stable versus more traditional square or oval geometries in this region. Taper area and thin blade also give a visual impression of the puck being larger.
Using a double-density internal polymer core, D-Lite Technology allows for a very stable heel and base area which transitions to a very light and springy mid-toe area. The center of gravity of the blade is also moved closer to the heel area, which makes the blade feel lighter but does not affect stability at impact. Taper hosel area is hollow, allowing for more weight savings. Additional aramid internal blade cap helps impact durability and prolongs blade life. Reinforced contract strip increases impact.
