Nearly 8 months ago, CCM and TaylorMade combined forces to create a stick with technologies like no other. The RBZ quickly grew in popularity with many NHLers using this high-end stick.
Like all great ideas or inventions, they are later enhanced. With TaylorMade’s recently launched RBZ Stage 2 Driver, hockey players can now revel in the RBZ Stage 2 Grip Stick by CCM.
Sporting a similar look to the original RBZ, the Stage 2 features a sharper, more innovative look with a dark upper half to contrast the white bottom half, while a black strip finds itself on the top of the blade and lower portion of the shaft. The altered color scheme was well thought out by the design team at CCM---leaving the lower half white makes the stick difficult for a goalie to distinguish from the white ice and boards, while adding black on the top of the lower shaft and blade makes the stick more visible in your peripherals while stick-handling.
The shaft of the Stage 2 is complete with Power Swing Technology providing a finer weight and flex distribution to give you more torque on your follow-through and a quicker release. The constant stiffness of the shaft gives you a customized kick point for optimal loading.
In the world of golf, TaylorMade introduced the Coefficient of Restitution. 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. Eliminating energy loss, maximizing puck speed, and truly places the RBZ Stage 2 in a world of its own for the second time.
Again, drawing from the proprietary RocketBallz golf technology, the Stage 2 has upgraded to 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 then the original RBZ helping to maximize puck speed. These channels transfer energy more efficiently and help increase the velocity of your shot while maintaining control and durability.
