• New Easton Stealth CX Hockey Stick Review

    The latest stick release from Easton Hockey is one that has been highly anticipated by me personally. When I found out they would be bringing back the Stealth name, I knew that they had to have a pretty special hockey stick on the way. It wouldn’t make sense to risk the loyal following the line has had by releasing a stick that wouldn’t live up to the name.

    I was, for a long time, one of those loyal followers -- at least since Easton introduced their elliptical taper sticks with the S-17. I can still remember how much different, and better, the release felt on that stick the first time I used it. From there I continued on to the S19, RS and finally the RSII. So as you can guess, I was pretty excited to get the new Easton Stealth CX hockey stick in my hands.

    Easton is debuting some pretty serious technology in the CX. This isn’t one of those models where a company simply tweaks the previous version a little; there is new technology in every part of this stick. Their goal was to create a hockey stick that would be a top-level performance stick with great durability and have a lightweight but still solid feel.

    The Stealth CX marks the first time Easton has released a true-one piece stick with an elliptical taper. This was accomplished using a new design to roll the layers of carbon fiber into the taper, creating a seamless construction. What is the significance of this? Read on to find out…

  • True XCORE 9 Hockey Stick Review

    The debut of True Hockey as a brand can be viewed as nothing short of a huge win. We were equally as impressed, as most customers were, by the performance and quality of their hockey sticks. So when True told us they’d be launching a new model for 2015, we were pretty excited to say the least. We were even more excited a few months ago when a blank stick simply marked “True Prototype” showed up at the office. Read More

  • CCM Ribcor 40K Stick Features and Review

    Yep, you read that correctly. The Ribcor 40K is now a part of the CCM brand. Why did they make this change? Well, Reebok and CCM officials realized that even though they had a significant number of Pro, Major and Junior players using their sticks it was divided between the two brands so their usage stats appeared lower than their competitors. By consolidating their stick lines under the CCM brand their usage stats appear more in line with those of their competitors. Read More
