New to 2020, the CCM Super Tacks AS3 Pro stick has an optimized super tacks construction with CCM’s new Nanolite carbon layering. This new mid-kick stick will give players an increased level of power and stability. Sitting at 380g, it makes it one of the lightest mid-kick sticks in the industry.
New to 2020, the Ribcor Trigger 5 Pro is designed for the ultimate quick-release shot. It features a low kick-point, e-geometry shaft and CCM’s new Nanolite carbon layering technology. At 365g, this is the lightest, quickest and most durable stick yet.
The Ribcor Trigger 5 Pro is one of the most popular sticks in the NHL for a reason. The innovative shaft and blade design make it one of the most unique sticks on the market today. It is perfect for any experienced player looking for a competitive advantage.
Building off the legacy of the versatile Bauer Nexus stick line comes the new Bauer Nexus Geo. The biggest change from previous iterations is the new ER SPINETECH, a 5-sided shaft geometry that allows for less carbon fiber layers in the key loading area of the stick. This will benefit the stick in numerous ways. The 5-sided shape provides a unique feel which helps to contour to the players hands for maximized feel and control. It also creates a faster energy transfer to the blade. Combine that with the optimized mid-kick flex profile that allows you to lean into your shots easier, and you have a stick that allows for powerful and quick shots alike. The new OmniCore blade technology that adds stability in the blade to reduce blade fatigue. This will keep it durable for longer without sacrificing the faster release
The new CCM RibCor Trigger 4 Pro is the latest version of CCM’s low-kick, quick release sticks. While the look remains familiar and the general mechanics, a stiff flex point at the middle of the shaft with the bottom third of the shaft gradually decreasing in stiffness, haven’t changed, the most unique feature of the new stick the the taper geometry
The all-new Asymmetric Taper at the bottom third of the shaft features a concave sidewall on the inner face of the stick with the outer face featuring a convex shape. The concave shape works hand in hand with the softer flex to improve release speed. The rounded convex shape on the outer face works to minimize the amount of rotational torque during shooting, helping improve accuracy, feel, and control
The new Agility Blade features a thinner profile, and a stiffer blade toe, allowing for more linear flex which helps with shot release speed, but maintains a sturdy, controlled feel during shooting and stickhandling.
With the addition of the senior 70 flex option, this is the most versatile offering of CCM’s #1 retail stick line. Come to the Stick Cellar and check out the CCM RibCor Trigger 4 Pro
With the latest iteration of CCM’s most versatile performance stick, they didn’t set out to reinvent the wheel. Rather, they made improvements to the shaft and blade, while staying true to what made the FT1 so popular.
The first improvement was to the shaft. The new R-Shape Geometry features rounder corners, concave sides, and a streamlined shape throughout, resulting in a more comfortable fit within the natural shape of players’ hands. This design provides players with a more controlled feel while stickhandling and shooting.
The new JF-80 blade features a proprietary dampened core delivering a lightweight and controlled feel. This core assists in puck control while stickhandling, shooting, and receiving passes. The new blade also features a reinforced heel and to for increased durability.

When looking at the new Bauer Vapor FlyLite hockey stick, the feature that jumps out most is the new XE Elliptical Taper.
Based off the infamous Easton Elliptical taper, this new taper is narrower and oval shaped. This unique shape helps stabilize the lower portion of the stick and blade helping to improve accuracy and control during shooting.
The rounded corners will also improve strength at the lowest portion of the stick and lower the overall weight of the stick.

While the current generation of composite hockey sticks perform at a level previously unheard of, it’s been a while since we’ve seen anything totally unique. Then along comes TOVI Hockey. These aren’t just different, they’re radically different. And it all starts with the DiamondAire Blade
The DiamondAire BLADE has an intricate, carbon fiber compression molding process never before used in hockey sticks, which creates a multi-directional fiber orientation in the blade. Our carbon fiber material has passed 1,000,000 cycle tests – meaning that it will never lose its “pop” like other composite sticks. This unique technology, coupled with the added strength of a patented cross beam construction, has eliminated the need for a blade core and allows TOVI Hockey to perforate the blade for better aerodynamics and puck feel. This outside-the-box approach to blade design and construction increases players’ swing speed, enhances durability, and yields the most amazing “feel” and puck control ever seen in the game of hockey.
The TOVI Mirage is the flagship model and features the shaft shape and low kick point of the popular Bauer Vapor series. It is available in 65, 75, and 85 flex and in the popular 92, 88, and 28 curve patterns

There is no more important time of year for a hockey player than tournament time! Tournament time is the culmination of the season. It also tends to be the time of the year when your stick has seen better days after numerous slappers, blocks and slashes. Fear not, this is a great time to consider a new stick and we have a few recommendations to narrow down the choices.
Bauer Nexus 2N Pro– This premium, pro level stick is the latest version of the Bauer Nexus line. Nexus stands out as the first of the “Hybrid Flex” sticks featuring a mid-kick point and Sweet Spot Technology for a natural flex. This is Bauer’s most versatile, elite stick.
Warrior QX Pro– A staff favorite for overall performance-to-value in a pro stick. This is the same stick used by junior hockey and college hockey teams. They are exceptionally lightweight and durable, and are offered in an extra tall. The QX line offers a “natural flex” coupled with the Saber Taper and Minimus Carbon 800 for a versatile, high performance experience. Compare this stick to sticks that cost $80-$100 more and you’ll have a new favorite too!
Warrior QRE Pro– Another staff favorite for overall performance-to-value in a pro stick. This is the same stick used by junior hockey and college hockey teams. They are exceptionally lightweight and durable, and are offered in an “extra tall.” The QR line offers a low kick point, the most popular kick point in hockey, coupled with the unique Edge Taper and Minimus Carbon 1000 for a high performance, quick release stick.

CCM SuperTacks AS1– The new SuperTacks AS1 pushes the boundaries of performance and will become the new standard for Mid-Kick point sticks. The stiffness profile has been revisited to maximize loading while providing great stability and control. Not only can players benefit from a great, powerful stick, the feel has been substantially improved. The new X-Flow technology allows for a 10g weight reduction while improving compaction for better durability.
CCM Tacks 9080– Another stick that rates highly in the performance-to-value ratio. Featuring the same mid-kick, maximum loading taper and intermediate geometry as the AS1 in a more affordable stick. At nearly 1/2 the price of an elite stick, this is one of the best deals around.
