Don't settle for fast when you can be Freakishly Fast with the RBZ™ Stage 2 stick from CCM.This is a product of a CCM Hockey and TaylorMade® Golf partnership that has flourished at the pro level! They have enhanced the technology 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.
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.
