New for the 2018 season is CCM’s latest iteration of the Tacks stick line, the Super Tacks AS1 Intermediate Hockey Stick! Boasting features such as X-Flow Technology and the Sigmatex build construction, the Super Tacks AS1 Stick pushes the boundaries of maximum performance!
Starting off with the construction, the Super Tacks AS1 Hockey Stick features CCM’s popular Sigmatex material! This high-tension weaving process allows the AS1 Hockey Stick to remain very lightweight, while also providing a strong and durable feel.
Paired with the Sigmatex Technology is the X-Flow Technology within the shaft. This improved molding process provides higher quality and consistency throughout the shaft! Excess resin and voids are removed within the shaft, improving stick durability as well as reducing the overall weight of the stick.
The shaft of the Super Tacks AS1 Hockey Stick has been redesigned to feel more comfortable in the hands as well. Designed with the help of elite women’s hockey players and youth players, the Super Tacks AS1 Hockey Stick features rounded corners and concave sidewalls, which provides superior control and comfort during stickhandling and shooting!
The Super Tacks AS1 Hockey Stick features a new maximum loading mid-kick point! The lower half of the stick has a stiff flex, and the mid-section has a softer flex, followed by an extra-stiff blade. This combination allows for a longer loading period, thus increasing the amount of energy stored, helping generate maximum power! The stiff taper, followed by the extra-stiff blade, helps improve stability and control on big slap shots and snapshots.
