New for back-to-hockey 2018 is the CCM Tacks 9080 Intermediate Grip Hockey Stick. With Brent Burns as the poster-boy for the new Tacks line, the 9080 pushes the boundaries of performance and will become the new standard for mid-kick point sticks. As a bonus, the 9080 comes in at a sub-$200 price-point, which is awesome for a player looking for an affordable higher-end stick! Stick specs:
Optimized mid-kick point: soft mid-section allowing for a longer loading period
X-Flow Technology shaft: higher-quality shaft that is consistent. You will get better durability and a reduction in weight!
ACU2 blade: light blade, while maintaining its stiffness (for a more accurate shot)
C6 Weave on blade/shaft: great all-around stiffness and strength (for added durability)
Stiff taper that maximizes stability during shooting and passing
XX-stiff blade reinforced at the heel and toe (for accuracy and durability)
