One of the key features is Sabre Taper II which is our exclusive taper design. It is torsionally stronger, combining low kick response with a powerful and accurate release. This easy to load design provides a quick release and pinpoint control on shots. New for 2021 is R.L.C. 133. Revolutionary Lightweight Construction 133 is a high-grade carbon construction that features the latest lightweight fiber technology and epoxy resin formulation to provide the ultimate in strength and playability. The Alpha LXT has MINIMUS CARBON UD. The Alpha LXT shaft is lighter and tougher than ever. Using unidirectional carbon fiber creates the most efficient lightweight and durable hockey stick. A key to the performance of the LXT is the blade. A lightweight polymer blade core that enhances puck feel and makes shots pop. Minimus Carbon 6 composite layering around the core is redesigned to be stronger and tougher. FuelCore reduces breakdown of materials in the blade and increases the durability. A staple for the Alpha line is the Ergo Shaft Shape. The ergonomic contour shaped shaft fits comfortably and securely in your hands enhancing touch and feel for better deking, dragging, and shooting.
