CCM RBZ 260 Senior Hockey Stick
CCM’s RBZ stick lines have established an almost cult like following. Featuring the undisputed hottest blade on the market, RBZ has won the loyalty of speed freaks everywhere. CCM, along with help from TaylorMade® Golf, continue the RBZ legacy with the RBZ 260.
The RBZ™ 260 stick features what CCM likes to refer to as a Very Low Swing Weight. This has a direct correlation to what golfers refer to as swing speed and basically means optimal weight distribution in order to give you a balanced stick with a smooth and fast swing motion. Just like its predecessors, the RBZ 260 has a constant flex profile in the shaft which gives you a Custom Kick Point that is determined by the placement of your lower hand. Typically, the kick point of a stick is predetermined by its construction for a specific type of release. The RBZ™ 260, however, adapts to your playing style.
For the construction of the shaft, CCM uses a secret proprietary composite blend which is a contributing factor in the relatively light weight of the 260. There’s really no visible taper to the shaft because of the constant flex profile, just a nice transition of where the blade and shaft meet. The RBZ™ 260 comes with a grip raised textured finish for the ultimate in feel and control.
The RBZ is still the only composite stick line on the market that uses no internal foam or other dampeners. The 260 instead features CCM’s SpeedBlade 2 with Freak Channels. This is the same blade once found on the top of the line RBZ Stage 2 stick, now available at an amazing price point! Instead of using foam in the core, finely tuned channels circulate through the blade in such a way that the coefficient of restitution or C.O.R. is increased by 20% when compared to previous models. Basically, this is a trampoline effect of the amount of energy return at the point of impact which results in a shot with increased velocity.
With so many high end features crammed into it, the RBZ 260 comes highly recommend to anyone looking for maximum velocity and value.
