Lowest Price Guarantee
The CCM RBZ 80 Grip Hockey Stick is the first model in the RBZ stick line that utilizes the all new SpeedBlade 2 with Freak Channels. This is a huge feature to have at this price point due to the amount of lively pop this blade has to offer. CCM teamed up with the leading golf club manufacturer TaylorMade to develop this technologically advanced blade.
The original RBZ made massive waves in the hockey industry with the first foam-less and hollow blade, called the SpeedBlade. CCM took this great piece of work and improved on it for the new line of RBZ sticks and this RBZ 80 is the first model to showcase it. The SpeedBlade 2 is also foam-less and hollow but the internal "speed channels" were re-engineered to be "Freak Channels". The Freak Channels have a 20% increase in C.O.R. (Coefficient of Restitution) compared to the original RBZ. More simply put, the new blade is 20% more effective at transferring energy from the blade to the puck than before, creating even more pop and power for the player.

Comments: I bought this beauty and I've been using it for about three months now. I call it my Sniper Rifle. I never really had a good slap shot before this stick, now I'm shooting lazer's from the point. It's super light, I am definately dribbling the puck allot faster. Great BANG for the buck. Ill be upgrading to the Stage 2 as soon as I can

Comments: You won't find a better stick at this price point. I came to this stick after using the Easton V5E. I became frustrated that Easton doesn't offer an option between the V5E and top of the line models which run over two bills, so I gave this a shot. Although both the V5E and RBZ 80 weigh approximately the same, the RBZ 80 has much better balance/is not blade heavy. The result is noticeable and makes it feel like a much higher end stick. The flex points feel like that of a tradition/mid kick stick. The flex feels a little softer than Easton (I use 100 in both). Overall, this is my first CCM stick after using Easton for many years and I am pleasantly surprised with the performance and will likely purchase another one.

Comments: The RBZ 80 stick is phemonenal! I can really fell the the pop on my shot and it is very comfortable in my hands. I was a bit skeptical at first since I never used
ccm stick, but it is now the best stick that I have used. I reccomend this stick to anyone looking for a stick that provides a balance between power and accuracy.
P.s. The variable kick point is a great feature
