The Tacks line features CCM’s mid-kick sticks, ideal for players who take a variety of shots from everywhere in the offensive zone and value versatility. CCM redefines the traditional mid-kick design with their Max Loading technology, optimizing the position of the softer flex zone which allows for a longer loading period to store more energy, while the stiff taper zone maximizes stability and response. This results in maximum shot power and accuracy no matter what type of shot you take.
For the shaft construction, the AS-V features Carbon Matrix Technology combined with Sigmatex Spread Tow. This cutting-edge design and weaving process significantly reduces weight without sacrificing the durability of the stick. With this technology, CCM can produce a stick that has great feel and consistency when shooting, passing, and stickhandling.
Also, on the shaft you will find CCM’s square T-Shape geometry. This proven design will provide players with a traditional feel for great grip and control. In the blade, the Tacks AS-V includes the ACUFEEL blade with peel ply. This blade is made with the right blend of stiffness and feel for better shot accuracy.
At the bottom of the shaft, CCM is using Skeleton+ Technology found in the taper area which provides better reliability so you can always rely on your stick in key parts of the game. This technology, which is passed down from the AS-V Pro stick, creates a balanced stick with greater stability and control when leaning into a shot and will help you generate more power and accuracy.
