Customer Questions & Answers for
CCM RBZ OPS Grip Composite Stick

Strap a rocket to the puck with the CCM RBZ powered by TaylorMade. CCM teamed up with world-renowned golf club manufacturer TaylorMade to bring their cutting-edge technology to the sport of hockey. Drawing from the proprietary RocketBallz golf technology, CCM has eliminated foam from the core of the blade and replaced it with SpeedBlade Technology. Foam absorbs velocity from your shot; SpeedBlade Technology replaces foam with four internal speed channels. These channels transfer energy more efficiently and help to increase the velocity of your shot while maintaining control and durability.In the world of golf, TaylorMade Golf also introduced the Coefficient of Restitution. Also known as the trampoline effect, the principles of the C.O.R. have been used in TaylorMade drivers for quite some time. In laymans terms, this translates to a blade that releases stored energy upon impact, resulting in harder passes and heavier shots. Eliminating energy loss maximizes puck speed and truly places the RBZ in a class of its own. Advancements in shaft design have resulted in what is known as Power Swing Technology. This provides a finer weight and flex distribution, giving you more torque on your follow-through and a quicker release. The constant stiffness of the shaft gives you a customized kick point for optimal loading.The RBZ was designed for the player who wants to fire an accurate shot that will blow a hole in the back of the net.Dont just shoot the puck. Drive it.

I've been using the CCM Recchi/Tavares pattern as my mainstay for years and after a lot of comparisons the Easton Heatley curve is the closest match in any other brand that I have been able to find so far.

I have a number of sticks in each pattern and they are very, very similar. I have recently switched over to using the Easton sticks more often and the two patterns play almost identical for me.

I have an Easton Mako Heatley curve and a Reebok 11k Dastyuk curve and find the CCM tavares curve to be the most comparable of the CCM curves. In fact I just ordered the CCM RBZ with a tavares curve.

No. Warrior translates as Lie 5 = true 6.

CCM is a true lie 5.

A "lie" is measured much like the angles on a protractor. Even though blade patters differ, the Lie remains constant across brands.

Real tough call on any sticks durability, but The RBZ is a dependable higher end stick that can withstand the abuse and dish it out. As most know, sticks can last 30 days or 3 years.

The Nugent-Hopkins is a deeper mid heel curve, Backstrom is a more shallow toe curve. They are similar but not extremely close.
