Rated 5 out of 5 by Our7thHeaven RBZ Stage 2 stick is a winner
My son plays "Squirt" level hockey and recently was not happy (small blade, narrow shaft and slippery shaft with his Bauer TotalOne NXG stick. I bought him the CCM RBZ 40 last year and it was a improvement. I picked him up this RBZ 80 Stage 2 stick and he is blown away. They improved the stick color so that when it falls on the ice, you can easily see the stick now because of a black stripe added to the top of the shaft (old version gets lost on the white ice). Secondly, they did something with the weight distribution of the shaft so it appears the stick is lighter because the volume of the weight is closer to the handle creating a feel that the stick is much lighter than it really is. Lastly, the shot performance of the stage 2 version is very noticeable. Shots are probably 20-30% harder with the FREAK channel technology. I know it sounds like I work for CCM, but the truth is this stick is just that good and I am a typical hockey dad looking out for the best for my son at a price I can afford. Well done CCM!!
