My custom 3 pack of R/V1 Pro+ sticks showed up today and all I can say is WOW! The Holy Smoke clear coat on the paddle and shaft look fantastic and a great alternative to just leaving the paddle black or going with paint if you want to save a few grams but have your stick stand out from the crowd a bit. The balance feels fantastic and the stick is noticeably lighter than my CR/1, just as promised. Mine are 27.5" and weighed in at 667g (almost perfect for ol' @bunnyman666). When picking them up I got to compare them side by side with the new CCM EF4 and Bauer 2S Pro. They're right there with the EF4 for weight and of course are slightly behind the 2S Pro. Next time I work at the LHS I'll try to take in my scale and get some actual side by side numbers. My next ice time is 10 days off, so I'll update with impressions after I get them out on the ice and follow up with a full review some time in May/June.
Edit: Big props to @Kirk3190 and the team at Warrior. The promised turn around time was 6 to 8 weeks and these showed up 4 days before the earliest possible day I had marked on my calendar. If the pads show up similarly early I'll get the rare privilege of breaking them in between sessions of competitive play. Fingers crossed!

I picked this stick up the other week at Scotiabank Arena's shop where they sell used gear by the Leafs. They sell everything from skates, helmets, sticks, gloves, pads, etc. It's not often I see a stick like this in such great shape and for only $200 CAD. A stick for Andersen is about triple that cost and to be honest, I probably would not use one of his sticks for my hockey. This was one of two sticks left by Curtis. The other one was all taped up and I preferred this one so I could see if there was any damage.
Anyway, I've never had a high end stick like this before. My most expensive goalie stick probably only cost me about $120 CAD so this is a nice upgrade from my current Bauer S27. The 1S is just so incredibly light. It almost feels like I'm using a player stick it's that light. It is going to be really hard going back to a low end stick again.
