CCM engineers have brought the new Ribcor Reckoner to the next level by optimizing the construction of both shaft and blade. The new PopMatrix technology maximizes output by keeping the performance fibers in constant tension while being protected by an outer layer around the shaft. The optimized blade stiffness profile provides even greater feel, more efficient energy transfer and explosive release than before. Blade: New and optimized stiffness profile that goes from softer in the heel to extra stiff at the toe for a great feel and a quick release. Shaft: Technora reinforced with Aramid fibers provide incredible durability and great performance . High-loading Ratio: Power taper ratio of 3:1 – More vertical stiffness means that less energy is wasted down into the ice and more energy is transferred all the way through the blade. Warranty: OPS Sticks and Composite Shafts (Player and Goalie) are warranted against manufacturing defects for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of sale to the consumer when used as intended under normal use and without alterations.
