  4. I'm looking for a new pair of skates and have an annoying situation. It's literally a 5 hour drive to the nearest hockey shop and so the usual, just go to your LHS is difficult. I grew up wearing CCM Tacks nearly exclusively and had great success with them. My most recent pair of 452s were probably purchased in about 2000. They lasted through 4 years of ACHA club hockey up to my current 6 hours a week of adult hockey. Last year I had to come to grips with the fact that they were falling apart and needed to be retired. I got a pair of CCM RBZ 80's. The fit seems pretty good, but naturally they are much stiffer. I typically tie my skates tight with wax laces and when doing that I would get incredible lace bite. I tried not lacing the top eyelet and the lace bite went away but I started getting bruising on the front on my ankles as that became the new point that bore the pressure when I flex forward. If I use non-wax laces the lace bite is bearable, but I also get slight heel slip enough that eventually I develop irritation and issues on my heel, particular after a tournament weekend or something like that. So I'm looking for a new skate that fits like old Tacks and is not really stiff. Based on my research, it looks like a Reebok or Bauer Nexus might be a good choice. I believe I have a slightly wide foot, probably verified by the fact that the Tacks are a pretty good fit and when I last tried on Bauers 20 years ago standard width was too narrow. Can anyone share any advice or personal anecdotes regarding softer flex and fit like old Tacks? Of note, budget is not really an issue, though I tend to get slightly cheaper skates as I never really felt there was too much need or value for me beyond an intermediate level skate. Durability is of importance to me as I'd like to delay buying new skates as long as possible. I'm 5'10" 155 lbs and am a pretty agressive and reasonably advanced skater. Thanks.
  5. Hey guys, so I'm new here and I apologize if there is already a forum post about a similar issue but I couldn't really find one on this particular issue. So I recently (3 weeks ago) bought myself a pair of CCM U+ 10s on clearance for a really good price and so far I love the boot fit and everything about the whole package except for some reason my left runner seems to just scrape across the ice when I come to a stop. I've had them sharpened at my local LHS 3 times and the last time I had them cross grind them to put a new hollow on the runner. The right one comes out perfect every time but I can't get the left one where I like it. Now, I realize some of this is due to my left foot being my "weak" foot but it's so pronounced I think something has to be wrong with the Runner itself. I've tightened the screws and put Loc-Tite on them, as well. If anyone has any insight or ideas on what to do that would be great, otherwise I guess I'll just try a new runner. Thanks!

    New Skate Help!

    Hey guys, I'm finally breaking down and have to replace my Mission Proto VSI with a Hi Lo set up. I'm looking at getting either the CCM Tacks 5r52, the Bauer X70, or the Mission Inhaler AC3. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards trying the Tacks but it has the straight 80mm chassis, and I'm not sure if I would adjust after using Hi Lo's for so long. Thanks

  8. Ok so heres the deal, I bought a pair of CCM U+ 12s about a year and when i got them I never had a chance to bake them because I ordered them by mail from hockeymonkey. When I got the skates I was on my home from school to play in the Return of the Robin tournament. I never thought It would be a big deal to just skate with them without baking them because I did it with one pair of my CCM U+ 08s and and many previous skates ordered online. I've noticed though that my feet feel offset in my skates like one foot it toward the inside of the skate and the other is toward the outside. I can still skate perfectly on them but, would baking them fix the position and feel of the boot so that it feel like im centered on the blade or atleast they feel even? P.S. I have checked the E-holder and it appears to be on strait and square. and just a side topic any one else with CCM U+ skates feel that the boots look really narrow when you lace your skates just curious.
  9. Hey Guys, So I am a college student in Minnesota and I play on the club team. I have been using the CCM Super Tacks 992 Size 7D skates for about a few months now and so far its been okay. This winter break I played pond hockey with friends for about 5 hours a day and after yesterdays skate the bony bump (lateral malleolus) on the lateral side of my ankle is in pain. The pain comes from pressure for sure. Now I realize that my skates are pretty old but I bough them new from Play it again sports. Do you guys think that I should invest to buy a new pair of skates in the level I am playing at? I skate probably everyday and would be appreciative of any advice. Also I think the guy from PIAS sized me wrong since I know that I have really wide feet and he gave me the 7D which is narrow. -Hunter
  10. Does anyone know how the sizing on these jerseys runs? LINK REMOVED I have a couple of XL CCM jerseys from when I was a kid, and they are pretty tight on me when I wear my shoulders and elbows. I am not sure if they have shrunk or what. I have another XL jersey that I got about 20 years ago that fits pretty well. And my XL team jersey that I just got (made in Thailand by someone that has nothing to do with NHL jerseys) is perfect, but I am told that these jerseys run large (so it is really like an XXL). So, does anyone know what the 52 and 54 stand for, in XL and XXL, for these Quebec Nordiques jerseys? I figure it is obviously inches, right?, but from where to where? At 6'2, 215 lbs, I know I am XL or XXL. I figure I can use my team jersey as my guide, and then match it up with whatever these numbers mean, to figure my jersey size.
  11. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/175-2014-reebokccm-catalogue/ Skates - We won't be covering the Tacks skate line until the lockdown has been removed. In the catalogue, that has a hockey tape theme, the skate is "covered" by tape. I will reinsert those pages in March, but I imagine Reebok/CCM will provide new pages. RBZ skate line is unchanged. The Reebok line has been updated - with a black theme, to go with the RIbcor theme. The quarter package of the skate has been updated with ribs for additional flex; down spec'd versions of the quarter package extend down to the 26k. You're still getting the Pump, liner and felt tongue from the 20k, however, the SB 4.0 holder which debuted on the RBZ skate is on the Ribcor - but with a black version of the SB steel. The SB Black will also be on the 30k skate as well. Sticks - both lines unchanged. One thing to note is a new CCM pattern; Galchenyuk, which is a Reebok Phaneuf/Drury/Parise clone. Helmets - CCM finally gets a new helmet after many years, and it's pretty apparent as to why it took some time - they had been working with the University of Ottawa (same department who validated Blackstone's FBV) and others on this helmet. Addressing both linear and rotational impacts, the Resistance offers protection in two ways; their REMa System (don't mind the catalogue, REMa stands for Rotational Energy Management) are 4 bladders which are liquid (oil) filled. The premise behind it is that as it the head rotates with the helmet, the bladders helps to slow it down, reducing the impact. On the linear side of things, there are pods - a combination of EPP/U-Foam and plastic shock absorbers which compress/disperse at point of impact. It's tool-less, with the adjustment on the back of the helmet. The Resistance will MSRP at $229.99. The Resistance 300 have the REMa bladders, but no pods. $159.99 MSRP. The Resistance facemask is a 580-style mask that's stainless steel with flat wires - and the clips where the screws attach actually have foam around it, which absorb shock. It only comes in silver, however the 300 mask is regular steel and comes in all colors. Gloves - this time around, Reebok gets the update; starting with the 30k, which is their anatomical fit, and is what they are calling a two-piece glove; the hand goes into one segment of the glove and then the rest of the glove wraps around it. The backroll is a combination of EVA (U-foam) and standard HD foam - the EVA is vented for air flow. Also to note, the cuff is bindingless. CCM gloves are unchanged. Pants - Reebok is unchanged. New pants for CCM - named RBZ. It still has U-Foam in the thigh and hip, but also gains the +1 length adjustment that debuted on the Reebok pants. Protective - Reebok is unchanged. The RBZ name carries over to an updated CCM line - things of note are the shoulder pads, which no longer have the floating sternum pad like on the CL - it now is integrated into the rest of the chest. The elbow pads seem to come down longer than last year's CL, and are vented in the bicep and forearm areas.

    Helmet Fit Help

    I have a CCM V08 combo and a Bauer IMS 9.0 combo, both in large. Both were ordered online as the proshop at the rink I go to hasn't had any helmets that were in the right size the last few times I've gone in- they cater almost entirely to children when it comes to helmets it seems. There are no other retail stores in my area so I'm stuck with guesswork. Both helmets have fit issues and I'm trying to figure out what I should do as I still have time to return/exchange either of them. The V08 fits well ear to ear but I've got a finger sized amount of space at my forehead with the helmet on the smallest setting. The cage needed to be spread a little because it was causing headaches it was so tight at my temples. Now that the cage fits better it's comfortable but the gap in length worries me. Also the chin cup is pretty weird on the cage- I think the cage may be a bit too big. Would dropping down to a medium make the helmet too snug width wise if it fits very close in a large? The IMS 9.0 fits front to back but leaves quite a bit of wiggle side to side. I can wear my glasses with this but that doesn't even help hold the helmet in place. The cage size is perfect. Would dropping this one down to a medium help the width issue I'm having? I actually ordered a medium but the company messed up so this would be an easy exchange. Would either one of them be acceptable in their current state and I'm just overthinking the issue? I know there's going to be a little bit of movement- I just want it to be as good a fit as I can get...preferably without spending the price of a helmet in return shipping to figure it out. Both helmets passed the head shake test for small movements but the IMS 9.0 moved a lot side to side when I applied any decent amount of pressure. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm not looking to be brand specific either so if you have another idea let me know. I haven't played in over 10 years and this is the last piece of equipment I need- I was really hoping to make it out Monday night for p/u and a skills clinic but I don't want to put myself at risk. I've had concussions in the past and I know a properly fitting helmet is the best defense in making sure I don't have another one.
  13. These are NWT, original CCM Mighty Ducks of Anaheim lowers. Both are size XL and neither has thigh boards. Both have belts, Mighty Ducks, and NHL logos. The main difference between the two is that one has zippers and one does not, and you can see that the belts and padding on the back of each shell is slightly different. $150 + shipping each or $250 for both. Best offers welcome! BOTH SOLD

  15. On Wednesday August 20, 2014, We hosted a moderated chat with Ollie Camet from Reebok/CCM OllieCCM Good afternoon everyone. I'm here to answer any questions you have about CCM and Reebok hockey sticks. Our Stick Director couldn't make it today but I managed the stick category before so hopefully I can answer all your questions. Stewie How do the shafts differ from senior to intermediate on the two CCM stick lines? OllieCCM The SR geometry is a tradiotional "T" while the INT geometry is closer to a "C"...so more contoured. JR Boucicaut Ollie - would you like to give a quick recap of both lines and how they differ from each other? OllieCCM Sure. The Tacks has a mid kick point and the AttackFrame blade designed for accuracy. The RBZ line has a custom kick point and Speed Pocket blade technology for a harder shot. Stewie will you be offering the two intermediate flexes on both lines again (60 and 65) that we see on your other lines? OllieCCM Yes. Players are much better educated on which flex is right for them so it makes sense for us to offer multiple flexes. In the past we only offered a 65 flex. It made it hard for a JR player to jump from a 50 to a 65 so we felt a 60 was needed. OllieCCM The right flex is key to performance. Many players believe a higher flex will mean a harder shot when often the opposite is true. If you can't load a stick properly because it's too stiff, you won't transfer enough energy to the puck. JR Boucicaut Will there be clear options on the Tacks sticks as there is on the Superfast? OllieCCM Tacks is only offered in Grip. Stewie do the 60 and 65 flexes differ in length? i want to say they did by an inch or two but don't remember nor know if that carries on OllieCCM Yes. The 65 flex is 1 inch longer. JR Boucicaut We've been noticing a lot of Reebok/CCM stick usage in the NHL as the season ended. It looks like there was some very good adoption of the Tacks line. Do you have any numbers you can share with us? OllieCCM Reebok-CCM was the #1 supplier of sticks in the NHL at the end of the 2013-14 season. We had well over 200 players on our sticks. JR Boucicaut This question is asked a lot; What do you do at Reebok/CCM, how did you get started, and if you can offer advice to someone looking to get into the business, what would it be? OllieCCM I started here 8 years ago. A teammate of mine was working here and he referred me for a product manager position in Lacrosse. Moved to the hockey side shortly after that. Best way to work for a hockey manufacturer is to work in the industry. Either for a league or in a store and make contacts. We're always looking. Gummer12 Do you encompass the goal stick line as well? For those of us goalies who may also have any questions. OllieCCM You can give it a shot. Gummer12 Is the CCM C400 goal stick any different than the old CCM H10, or which stick is currently closest? OllieCCM Those goalie sticks were before my time. The C400 has a foam core paddle with fiberglass...if that helps. It also has a multi-laminate handle Gummer12 For the paddle measurements, do you know which edge that measurement is taken on? Some are measured on the top side, and others measured on the bottom/heel side. OllieCCM 99% sure length is measured from the heel but I'm confirming. OllieCCM Confirmed...measured from the heel. Chippa13 The Lecavalier P17 isn't available per the latest catalog, any chance it will be revived for future offerings or is it gone? OllieCCM We're trying to streamline our curve offering by offering the most popular ones. No plans to bring back Lecavalier for now. Some other patterns are pretty close. Gummer12 What do you see as the biggest hurdle to getting prices down to a more affordable level in order to help grow the game? OllieCCM Good question Gummer12. When you think about it we offer products at many different price points for all levels of hockey. In the past the selection was more limited. Yes sticks can now be more than $250 but we also offer some starting $50 for OPS. It comes down to the consumer deciding where he wants to spend his money. Stewie i think we are seeing better features on a lot of the mid price point sticks now, someone mentioned in the forums being impressed with the second tier tacks stick, what features trickle down to that stick, and what is the weight difference approx OllieCCM Across the Tacks line you'll have the same blade technology (AttackFrame). It's essentially a technology that reduces torsion to keep the blade stiff during release. OllieCCM The Tacks is 430 grams, the 5052 is 450 grams, the 3052 is 510 grams and the 1052 is 570 grams. kerr Would the CCM Tacks 5052 stick play similar to pro stock stick with a FC construction? OllieCCM Yes Kerr. Stewie Are all levels of the Tacks offered in intermediate? OllieCCM Yes, Although the 1052 only comes in 65. kerr With certain MSH members complaining about the lack of heel curves, will a pro Crosby pattern be offered to appease them? OllieCCM The Galchenyuk pattern on CCM is a heel. JSK81 How about the crazy light line, is there gonna be another model after the CL500, and 400, 300 etc? OllieCCM There are no plans to move forward with a new CL line of player sticks. IW Team - Chase Ollie - How's the C.O.R. in the AttackFrame compare to the SpeedPocket. I understand RBZ = HIGH COR, but does the AttackFrame strategically have a low COR? OllieCCM The C.O.R is highest on the RBZ for more power. The C.O.R on the Tacks is also high but it's really build for maximum accuracy. OllieCCM Any last questions? JR Boucicaut I think we're good here. I appreciate you coming out and filling in for Ryan! OllieCCM Thanks for joining us for this live chat. We'll try to do more of these throughout the year. JR Boucicaut We will have plenty to talk about in the future. Absolutely!
  16. We will be hosting a chat with Ryan on Wed 8/20 from 2-4pm ET. He oversees the stick department at Reebok/CCM and will be able to answer any and all questions you may have about the new lines. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/chat/ is the link to our Chat Room.

  18. Hi, Last year, I bought a couple of CCM sticks from the local sports store. Unusually, they actually had something in, which is usually not the case. Since I live in a small town with little to none hockey interest, I almost always have to order my sticks online. To do that, I need to be able to determine the curve I have on my sticks. Below, you will see poorly taken picture of my stick. It is a CCM CrazyLight of some sort. Unfortunately, the stick just says "6", and when I google for CCM curve angle 6, I get nothing. Therefore, I ask you guys for help. It would be awesome if you could tell me what curve it is, and maybe some other brands (Reebok, Bauer, Easton, etc) that have identical or similar curves on their sticks. Please take into consideration that some curves have different names in Europe. I also have a Reebok stick, A.I.7 with a similar hook, that also is completely unbranded. Also, if any administrator finds this to be in the wrong section, please move the thread to the proper place. Huge thanks in advance.
  19. So for a while I was set on getting the CCM RBZ Stage 2 hockey stick, until I picked up the Reebok RibCor. Although these two sticks have only a weight difference of about .07 oz (according to HockeyMonkey), the RibCor felt better to me. I know there are different technologies in each, such as the custom kick point in the RBZ Stage 2, and quicker power transfer in the RibCor. What is your guys' personal opinions on these two sticks?

  21. As part of MSH's Long-Term Review session with Reebok|CCM, I'll be handling the CL 500 glove, which is new for 2014. I went with navy/sunflower as it is a colorway that we use for MSH Winterfest. It's a tapered fit, which doesn't deviate too far from the original CL (which I haven't used. I have not used a CCM glove in a very long time) however, with a flared cuff. The internals of the glove is their NHL-spec U-Foam package - no poly inserts. New flex thumb which has considerable forward flex. Stupid light - one glove I weighed at 264.5g. My preferences for gloves is that I do like a tapered fit and an extremely flexible top hand. To the flared cuff - the main piece is U-Foam; Here is my wrist in regular position - And flexed - Palm is beige nash with grip print on the fingertips. Glove does feel somewhat stiff out of the box, however I bake all of my gloves. And based on the fact that this is U-Foam, I think they will take extremely well to heat. I will be updating my LTR, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask in this thread. Thanks goes out to Johanna Miller, who handles digital/social media at Reebok|CCM for participating in our LTR program and seeding me this pair.

    Background: I will be giving this review from a referee's prospective. For my first 2 years of officiating, I used the same skates for adult league and refereeing (NikeBauer One70). At the beginning of the hockey season, I decided to finally buy 2 skates: one for playing (Easton Mako) and one for officiating (RBZ). I was hesitant at first but I figured since I plan on officiating for a while, I might as well make sure I have equipment dedicated to the specific craft. Before my RBZ purchase, the last pair CCMs I had were the 652 SuperTacks from my youth days. I knew I was in for something else. Officiating Specs: 5'11"...205lbs...work Youth (both travel and scholastic), JRs (all tier III), ACHA club hockey (DI - DIII) and Adult league...work all four officiating systems (usually as a linesman at the higher levels). Size: 9.5D Ice time: roughly on the ice 3-4 times/week Usage: About 7 months Fit: Ah. It took about 2 months for these skates to break in and be pain-free. The RBZs seem to take on the traditional the longer period wasn't totally surprising. During the break-in period I experienced lace bite, arch pain and tightness in the foot box area (not nearly as bad as I had with my previous pair of skates). Now that they are broken in, the RBZs are roomy and comfortable and I don't have any issues with them. The custom support insoles make significant difference in comfort and support also (I use the MED size). I do have to skip the top eyelet so that I can gain forward flex and lengthen my stride. CCM made a stiff boot and that is the only way I can truly use the RBZs to its fullest potential. 8/10 Blade/Holder: The blade/holder combo is the best I've experienced/seen on a pair of CCMs. With the Hyper-Glide runners, there isn't near as much bite as I have experienced with other skates. It took me a little bit to get use to but I've enjoyed the decreased resistance with every stride. 10/10 Weight/Protection: The RBZs are well constructed. Going the traditional theme, they aren't the lightest skates on the market. But given there depth and width, I feel they are on par with its competitors. I've been whacked with sticks and hit with pucks. The worse I had it was when a wrap-around hit the inside ankle of my right foot. Left a bruise and my ankle was somewhat swollen but I would expect the same result with any other boot. 10/10 Durability: The RBZs have held up well and given my previous experience with CCM, this comes at no surprise. I do have to point out that one of my top eyelets (that so happen to NOT use) is already coming apart. 9/10 Intangibles: I'm bullish on the looks of the RBZ. CCM modernized their look without looking gimmicky. As an official, I feel it's important for me to look professional no matter what level I am working. I've had both fellow officials and players comment on how much they like the look of the RBZs. CCM has made the necessary step(s) to having looks match performance. 10/10 Conclusion: I'm a fan again. It's as simple as that. I feel that the RBZs represent the growth in R&D by CCM and it shows in their skate. The worst part about this skate is the break-in period. It was the worst I experience in a while but well worth it in the end. I highly recommend RBZs for people looking for more volume/width. 47/50 = 9.4/10

  24. Now, another foreign skate for me... Allow me to preface - CCM skates and I have had a checkered past. I was never one of those prototypical CCM fit guys; I had tried to skate with 952s back in 1999, which did not go well, then I got a pair of Externo E:60s back in 2001, and that didn't go that well either.CCM sent me a pair of original U+ back in 2007, and that was a bit bearable, but still not right. I remember being shown the CCM CL under a table in the CCM booth in Vegas as it was still a secret back then, and thought that they were definitely on the right track, but alas, it didn't have enough volume. This boot, however, is VERY interesting. As previously mentioned - it was a complete new design from the ground up. I ended up in the same size that I was in previous CCM skates - 10.5 D. Like I said in a previous post, I know I'll always be on the short side of 296 as that number won't change. The boot continues with the black/red scheme as its predecessor, the CL, albeit with white RBZ branding on the top of the ankle. Very good weight - they are 25% lighter than CL. The lining is Clarino, however, nash on top of the tendon guard, which is something that has been on the Reebok skates. The tongue is a thin felt, however, with U-Foam on the facing as well as inside, and a lace-bite pad as well. Another new product is the SpeedBlade - once again, another new product. The holder is 4mm taller, and the balance of the holder was altered as well by shifting it back center. They didn't stop there, though. New steel - the HyperGlide is a highly-polished runner, which can only be used with this holder - so it is not compatible with E-Pro. No honing required on these - I radiused them to 11' and then sharpened and after my final pass, did not leave a burr. On initial fit, the skates felt a bit square - better than what the CL did, but still square nonetheless. That was one of the issues with the CL - you truly had to bake them to get them to fit well, and even made it a point to tell retailers that they can bake the skate multiple times, so to go ahead and bake it if someone were on the fence. These are better in that regard. The boots feel very soft out of the box, which I'll revisit in a bit. No hotspots or anything on initial laceup. I put them in the oven for 3.5 min, and then laced both of them up, and the skate instantly felt better. After the baking process, I removed them and then laced them up and kept them like that til the next day. Same as the CL did - they became considerably stiffer after the bake. One thing to note - I shredded the top eyelet during the baking process. It was weird - pulled it out and it looked like a corkscrew - didn't break, simply shredded. The final lacing pattern isn't very bad - it's a touch wide in the toe area for me. It's going to be a bit crazy for me, because I will be doing two simultaneous reviews - been so busy with the move that I haven't been on the ice in 2 months. I will be skating these next Friday however. Any questions, please post in this thread. Thanks goes out to Johanna Miller at Reebok|CCM for sending me these - much appreciated!
