The RBZ 60 uses an extra stiff blade construction with foam core and a single bridge to give you the power you need behind your shot. This should help the shooter to keep the face of their blade closed while in their shooting motion. The shaft has a grip finish for more control and accuracy and is made to extend, internally, into the heel of the blade where they are fused together. CCM refers to this as their "Spear Construction". Overall, you may not be getting the top end material that is currently in the RBZ, but you are getting additional power and accuracy out of your shot, and you are getting the sleek, pro level look of an RBZ.
