Last year, an old CCM legend relaunched with a point to make… and it made it loud and clear. The Tacks stick was a huge hit on all levels -- from the NHL to house leagues. So, not content sitting back with the success, CCM is launching their Ultra Tacks hockey stick for the 2015-16 season.
If you’ve been living under a rock for over a year, you may not know about the original CCM Tacks stick from 2014, so here’s a quick refresher. The Tacks line was built to fill a gap in the CCM line-up. They had no mid kick-point stick and their NHL players were clamoring for one. Generally speaking, when NHL players start asking for something, it’s not long before the retail market is asking for it too -- and this case was no exception. CCM introduced the Tacks stick as their mid kick-point model, designed with a stiff blade for players seeking accuracy and the smooth, effortless release of a mid kick-point stick.
Now with the Ultra Tacks stick release, CCM doesn’t seem to be trying to fix what’s not broken, but they certainly seem intent on improving things. With the Ultra Tacks, CCM makes an upgrade to one major feature and introduces another.
