The next generation of the legendary Tacks name is here and better than ever, and with it comes a beefed up line of CCM’s most durable sticks to date. With RBZ offering a custom kick and Ribcor offering a quick release low kick, CCM caters to the snipers with a mid-kick point in the Ultra Tacks lineup. The Tacks 6052 was designed to provide unmatched accuracy and precision in a high performance lightweight stick.
CCM found success with Attackframe technology, which was featured in the original Tacks stick, only to one up it with a much lighter version of the same tech now dubbed Ultra Attackframe. Engineers designed their blade to have a structure with a strong outer frame and two stiffer bridges that run heel to toe. The stiff reinforcements that run across the blade help to increase bending stiffness and torsional rigidity which prevents any twisting of the blade and keeps you square to your target while delivering consistent and accurate shots. By reducing the weight of the blade you get a better overall balanced feel which in turn promotes a higher performing stick and more accurate shots. Another benefit of having this stiffer blade is the durability factor as well as reliability. With the Ultra Attackframe technology, pro testimonials state that their sticks are lasting longer while providing that same feel they had the first day they received their stick, giving them the consistency needed to perform.
This composite shaft is made with carbon fiber and fiber glass and uses a traditional geometry with square-corners which has strategically placed tactile texture and a grip finish. There is a very slight gradual taper because of the mid kick flex profile to a nice transition where the blade and the shaft meet. On the inside of the matte finished blade, is the Ultra Attackframe tech mentioned above with a lightweight quality foam core between the frame and bridges. CCM is also offering a pro flex in the 6052 in a 95 flex option which is an additional 3 inches longer than the other senior sticks, designed for the bigger and stronger players looking for a stiffer and taller stick.
CCM strived for a durable stick that would provide legendary accuracy and performance. If you are a player looking to elevate your game with precision, accuracy, and consistency (all qualities of a sniper), then check out CCM’s 6052 hockey stick made to light the lamp.
