The Reebok 25k Grip Hockey Sticks are the first model in the new Reebok stick line to feature the RibCore Pre-Loaded Fiber Technology. This pre-loaded hockey stick boasts an incredibly quick shot release due fiber arrangement in the lower portion of the shaft. Reebok used even more top notch features such as the new SSX blade and Tri Matrix Construction that make this stick very hard to beat at this price point.
The RibCore Pre-Loaded Fiber Technology is a big innovation to hit the hockey stick market. Shooting consists of loading fibers into tension and causing them to store energy, only to release the tension that results in the power and force felt by the puck. When you pre-load the fibers, you're leapfrogging the first step and getting direct power that takes much less time to achieve. So with the new RibCor design, players will feel their shot is released quicker and faster than ever before.
Reebok is able to offer an incredibly accurate shot on top of the new found quick shot release with the introduction of the SSX blade. This new blade progressively gets stiffer from heel to toe so that it does not open up on big shots and stays square to the target for pin point accuracy. Furthermore, Reebok used aerial-grade carbon fiber with fiberglass reinforcements to give the 25k a weight savings of 15 grams and a balance point improvement of 7 cm compared to it's predecessor, the Reebok 18k.

Comments: Snapped in half during warmups, after being used in only 1 stick & shoot session. It was covered under the 60 day warranty, but after over a month of waiting, I have yet to receive a replacement stick from Reebok.

Comments: this stick is awesome! I got it for my high school tryouts (even though i got like 10 shots) the stick performs excellent. It looks like a top of the line stick too. The
grip is hardly even noticeable with the raised dots on the back hand and doesn't hold you up when making moves. The puck feel is great too and its a balanced stick. And i love the stiffened blade since i've always had problems with my blade deflecting in the past on slapshots, but now it's not a problem anymore. The shots feel good too with the low stick, i can get them off quickly, and feel the pop as i shoot. So far a great stick and i am probably gonna buy another one!

Comments: Fantastic stick. The puck just explodes off the blade, excellent for snappers and wrist shots. Also a very powerful and accurate slap shot. Highly recommend this. The grip is also amazing.

Comments: This is the best stick I have ever used. My shots are way more accurate and the puck just absolutely POP's off the blade. I can't even imagine what the top of the line RIBCOR is like.
