CCM hockey sticks have gone through a serious revamping over the past couple of catalog years, and they are hitting full-steam with the brand new CCM Ribcor Reckoner hockey stick. The Ribcor Reckoner hockey stick will be the next volume in the Ribcor saga, and its not just your traditional upgrades that are coming from CCM.
CCM stuck to the same core concepts that have traditionally worked for the Ribcor line: provide optimized puck feel and build a stick that can give the shooter the quickest release. The new Ribcor Reckoner will feature a concaved hosel section that will replace the previous multiple-rib design. This new contoured shaft design from CCM is called their PopMatrix Technology and it will be featured on the Ribcor 48K stick as well. The idea behind this design is the same as when the Ribcor had ribs, the fibers remain in tension to provide the shooter with a quick energy transfer when shooting. CCMs Technora shaft material is used to reinforce these ribs, giving you the durability you need to get into the corners and dig. Flex point will not change with this upgrade. You are still getting that low kick point that has always worked for the Ribcor line.
Turning to the blade, the Ribcor Reckoner will feature CCMs all new Ascent Blade. This blade will function and look similar to its predecessor, the SXX2, but will have key upgrades. For starters, the blade is lighter. More importantly, CCM has revised the blade design to give it a softer heel. As you travel down the blade, it becomes stiffer and stiffer until it culminates in an extra stiff blade toe. The soft heel is meant to work with you when dishing out and receiving passes, and the extra stiff toe is ideal for ripping quick shots off the toe and dangling past defensemen.
