With a similar look to the RBZ 80, the RBZ 80 Limited Edition Composite Stick features a polished, contemporary design with a dark upper half to contrast the white bottom half. This is accented by a color-contoured line pattern that spans the length of the shaft. The design team at CCM came up with this design to give the advantage to the shooter. By leaving the lower half white, the stick’s blade is more difficult for a goalie to distinguish from the white ice and boards; conversely, the darker upper half camouflages nicely in your dark-colored peripherals. It’s worth noting that this limited edition stick features an accent blue color scheme in contrast to the accent red color scheme of the RBZ 80. It really looks nice!
The RBZ 80 LE features Power Swing Technology which grants a very low swing weight and better distribution to give the player more torque on the follow-through and a quicker release. The stick’s custom kick point reacts based on the position of the player's bottom hand so it is perfect for any type of shot.
In the world of golf, TaylorMade introduced the Coefficient of Restitution (C.O.R.). Also known as the trampoline effect, the principles of the C.O.R. have been used in TaylorMade drivers for quite some time. In hockey terms, this translates to a blade that releases stored energy upon impact, resulting in harder passes and heavier shots. By eliminating energy loss and maximizing puck speed, the RBZ 80 LE counts itself among the elite sticks on the market.
Drawing from the proprietary RocketBallz golf technology, the RBZ 80 LE sports the SpeedBlade 2 Hockey Technology. This takes out the traditional foam, which absorbs velocity from your shot, and replaces it with SpeedBlade 2 Technology. This technology features FREAK CHANNELS that provide 20% more C.O.R than the original RBZ, maximizing puck speed. These channels will transfer energy more efficiently and help increase the velocity of your shot while maintaining control and durability.
The combination of CCM and TaylorMade technologies—not to mention a unique color scheme—put the RBZ 80 LE stick’s style and performance in a class of its own.
