Purchasing the right hockey stick can help bring your game to the next level. When choosing your new stick, it is important to place an initial focus on kick point. Finding the kick point that matches your style of play will help enhance your shooting and have a positive impact on your on-ice performance. If you’re unsure which kick point is best for you, or you’re looking for an accurate assessment, visit your local Elevate Sporting store.
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-VI features Advanced Carbon Matrix combined with Sigmatex Spread Tow. This performance carbon layering technology 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.
In the shaft you will find CCM’s square Traditional, “T-Shape”, geometry. This proven design will provide players with a traditional feel for great grip and control. In the blade, the Tacks AS-VI includes the ACUFEEL Soft Blade with peel ply. This blade was perfected to achieve the right blend of stiffness and feel to deliver accuracy and control.
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-VI 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.
If you’re looking for a high performing stick with great feel, but don’t want to pay at the top price point, take a look at the Tacks AS-VI. This stick is lightweight with some great technology that focuses on maximizing power and accuracy in every shot.
