While it is shaped similarly to the Covert's Dagger Taper, the Sabre taper provides better stability for the blade while also giving it a bit more shot power too.
The new True 1 Phantom Feel construction process enabled the QX stick to feel lighter than the QRL while weighing the same (410 grams). This happens because the updated process allowed Warrior to raise the balance point, making it even more playable. The Minimus 100 carbon fiber is aerospace grade material that is exclusively found in this top of the line QX. Especially compared to the previous generations of Warrior sticks, Minimus 1000 is significantly lighter, stronger and more responsive.
