f you are one of the many out there that loved the RBZ™, then you're going to love this next stick even more. We're talking about the RBZ™ Stage 2 stick from CCM, also powered by TaylorMade®.

CCM Hockey and TaylorMade® Golf have partnered, once again, on enhancing the technologies that made the original RBZ™ stick so great. The RBZ™ Stage 2 stick features what CCM likes to refer to as Power Swing Technology. This has a direct correlation to what golfers refer to as swing speed and basically means optimal weight distribution in order to give you a balanced stick with a smooth and fast swing motion. Just like the original RBZ™, the Stage 2 has a constant flex profile in the shaft which gives you a Custom Kick Point that is determined by the placement of your lower hand. Typically, the kick point of a stick is predetermined by its construction for a specific type of release. The RBZ™ Stage 2, however, adapts to your playing style.

For the construction of the shaft, CCM uses an aerial grade carbon which is a contributing factor in the relatively light weight of this stick. The senior shaft uses a Traditional geometry with square-corners, while the intermediate, junior and youth uses a Contoured geometry with rounded corners for better fit and feel for smaller hands. The RBZ™ Stage 2 comes with the grip finish plus is also available in non-grip for the senior models only.

There's really no visible taper to the RBZ™ Stage 2 because of the constant flex profile, just a nice transition of where the blade and shaft meet.

The blade is where the most significant advancements occur on this stick. If you thought the puck came off your RBZ™ with high velocity, you'll probably freak out at how much faster it will be with the RBZ™ Stage 2. What makes it Freakishly Fast? Speedblade 2 has Freak Channels. Instead of using foam in the core, finely tuned channels circulate through the blade in such a way that the coefficient of restitution or C.O.R. is increased by 20% in comparison to the already fast speed channels design of the RBZ™. Basically, this is a trampoline effect of the amount of energy return at the point of impact which results in a shot with increased velocity. These are some of the same principles that power the TaylorMade® Rocketballz™, which is why you'll find the "Powered by TaylorMade®" graphic proudly displayed on the stick.

Don't settle for fast when you can be Freakishly Fast with the RBZ™ Stage 2 stick from CCM.

The above.
