While long-time hockey fans are excited to see the name “Tacks” back on hockey skates, CCM has also introduced the Tacks name into the stick market. The philosophy behind the Tacks Sticks is very similar to that of the Tacks Skates, explosive power. All models in the CCM Tacks Stick Line (which includes the Tacks, 5052, 3052 and the 1052) are constructed with a traditional mid-kick point. This specific flex profile is a pro-favorite and it’s geared for the player who aggressively leans into and loads up on big shots. Mid-kick sticks are capable of storing and releasing more energy than low-kick sticks, which is why they’re recommend for heavy shooters.
