For 2011 CCM has divided their “crazy” stick line to 2 completely different models. I’m sure many of you were familiar with the Crazy Light stick. Due to popular demand CCM has brought this model back, as well as introduce the Crazy Strong Stick. The Crazy Strong has more husky structure, built with grinders in mind. If you’re not looking for the lightest stick, but a stick with solid performance and great durability, the Crazy Strong may be for you.
The main reason the U+ CS stick is “Strong” is because of its unique carbon fiber construction. CCM added extra layers of impact resistant carbon fibers to the entire CS shaft. These fibers offer solid performance while adding impact resistance. The CS weighs about 448 grams, which is only 31 grams heavier than the Crazy Light.
The blade on the U+ Crazy Strong Stick offers accuracy and a large sweet spot. The blade features a dual-bridge construction to enhance the sweet spot from the heel to the toe. The CS blade core includes dual density foams for an amazing puck feel.
The other models in the “Crazy” stick line are the Crazy Light, and the limited edition Crazy Ovie. The Crazy light is the lightest stick on the market at about 417 grams. It features the same dual bridge blade construction as the Crazy Strong.
The U+ CL matted version is covered in a less pronounced sandpaper texture compared to previous Crazy Light models. The Crazy Ovie features the exact same construction as the Crazy Light Grip stick but is equipped with Ovechkin’s unique toe curve.
