The RIBCOR series of sticks puts carbon fibers in tension for an explosive release every time you unload. The RIBCOR 28K, which weighs in at 515 grams (senior), features easy-to-load technology that provides you with a professional stiffness profile that mirrors the top-of-the-line RIBCOR shaft. The 3:1 power taper provides you with more vertical stiffness, which allows for less energy wasted down through the ice. Basically, every ounce of strength you put into your shot will go into the loading of the stick.
The SXX Blade is stiff in the heel to extra stiff in the toe, helping to keep the blade square to the target. This helps you have an improved puck feel and keeps the blade honest on every shot.
The tacky texture of the grip material gives you a better feel hand-to-stick, providing you with the comfort to go for the stretch poke checks or make some moves with the puck you may not have tried before.
