CCM Ultra Tacks Shoulder Pads Review

CCM-TACKS-PROTECTIVE

The new CCM Ultra Tacks shoulder pads provide a lightweight comfort and protection like no other. With the D3O Smart Foam Technology and innovative design, CCM was able to increase the area of the body covered by the Tacks shoulder pad while still managing to maintain a low profile. The Tacks pad is designed to provide the most coverage and protection possible.

The body area of the pad is made up of Tacks foam armor. Tacks foam armor is highly flexible, comfortable and extremely breathable. It grants players freedom of motion and helps to keep them cool during the course of the game.

CCM Ultra Tacks Protective: Hockey Gloves Review

The new CCM Ultra Tacks glove, in my own opinion represents a major improvement from CCM over its predecessor, the CL500. Not that the CL500 was a bad glove, but as soon as you slip the Ultra Tacks glove on your hand, its quality is evident. It is extremely comfortable right off the wall and feels broken in enough for immediate use.

That alone sold me, as I predict it will sell a lot of other players. Gloves are bought first and foremost off of feel–if it’s not comfortable or just doesn’t feel right, most players won’t care about the technology inside or even give it a second look. They will go try on the next glove.

His intelligence of the game, passion for teaching, and enthusiasm in helping youth hockey players hone their skills is well documented in his numerous blog posts and instructional videos and columns.

Coach Chic taught many former and current NHL players and hundreds of top collegiate athletes. A New England native, Coach Chic now resides in the Sunshine State, and we were recently able to chat with him about hockey and coaching.
