The CCM RBZ Superfast Stick

CCM RBZ Superfast Stick

You may have noticed during the most recent NHL Playoffs that some players in the league were using a new CCM stick that really stuck out. Yes, the red one that players such as Gabriel Landeskog of the Avalanche were using. It is the CCM RBZ Superfast and it is the newest top-of-the-line stick in the RBZ family from CCM.

The E28 Curve Has Ruined Me Forever

Easton E28 Curve

When I was a kid in the 1980’s, phones were not a designer object, nor were they something you actually brought with you places. You just didn’t have that option. I still laugh to myself when I remember a conversation I had here in the office with a younger employee who asked me “so how did you talk to girls back then?” I had to explain to him that – gasp! – we actually had to walk up to them and speak.

CCM Tacks History

Back in the early days of competitive hockey there was a Canadian boot maker named George Tackaberry. In 1937, CCM purchased the patent for George’s widely used “Tackaberry” skate. What started off as a single pair of skates built for a friend had become a legend. From that moment on, Tacks skates were not only the face of CCM, but they were one of the most popular skates in all of hockey. CCM eventually replaced the Tacks with the Vector line, the U+ line, and then the RBZ line that we have today.  Now, people are finally going to get the chance to skate on CCM Tacks again…as well as shoot with a Tacks stick.

True A6.0 Stick

One of the most exciting new pieces of gear to come into our warehouse in the past couple months is the True Hockey A6.0 Stick. Although the brand might be a bit unfamiliar to you, True has used their patented Axenic Technology to produce over 2 million hockey sticks for other manufacturers and over 1 billion (yeah, that’s right, billion) golf club shafts, so it is safe to say that they are pros with composite materials. These guys really know what they are doing, which becomes quite clear once you get the A6.0 in your hands for the first time.

On the outside, the True A6.0 is a beautiful stick. A slick black and grey design is paired perfectly with blue accents to show a bit of flash in a tasteful manner. When I finally got it into my hands the first thing I noticed was the incredible light weight and surprisingly solid construction.
