  1. New for 2017, the Super Tacks is CCM's top-end girdle. Here's it out of the box: The shell is removable, with leg zippers and +1 adjustment. It has three points in which it attaches to the girdle. There is a second loop under the belt in which the shell strap hooks into. Adjustable spine pad, with D3O. Now, here's the girdle without the shell. Open front crotch. However, there is a step-in part in the seat of the girdle. Opening it up, you can see it. The tailbone pad is built in, similar to 9k. There are 4 adjustment tabs in the girdle. Two of them extend all the way up to the kidney pad and bring the back of the thigh pad up... And the other two bring the front of the thigh pad up. Hip pads are similar to 9k. There's a lot to like here. Having the open crotch is good, and there's no shortness of protection as well. However, two things could be potentially nagging - the step-in part is one. It doesn't really seem to be necessary - the points it's attaching to is the groin pad area and the tailbone pad. The second one is the lack of stretch material in the top of the girdle. The only part where there's any sort of stretch is a 1.5" piece where the velcro tab is that mates to the belly pad. I'm hoping to skate in them shortly. Any questions or additional pictures needed, please ask. Thanks goes to CCM for sending me this set. I've been a girdle wearer for almost 20 years so it's a category that always intrigues me.

    CCM P88 curve

    While looking at the Super Tacks As1 for pre order on some sites they show a P88 Ovechkin curve as an option. Does anyone know if this will this be a new crazy curve, or just their retail P80 (Bauer P88 clone)/P40 replacement? Noticed it though there seems to be no additional details that I have found.

    CCM Supertacks Skates fit

    Hey Guys So I made a post before about a pair of 1S skates I had which I have now sold and just bought a pair of Supertacks. To give a little information before, I had a pair of One95's that I bought on consignment at Pro Skate in Edmonton, AB and really liked them, but they've become too soft and I'm a bigger guy at 5'10, 245 pounds (and trying to lose!!!) so I wasn't getting the response I wanted anymore. I bought the 1S', didn't fit well and were so stiff I got no forward flex which made skating in them extremely tiring. So I got these Supertacks on Saturday in Salt Lake City while I'm living in Idaho Falls, Idaho (pathetic I need to drive 3 hours just to try on skates). I wasn't planning on buying but they had 200$ off and CCM has a 30 day warranty if I don't like them, I can return them so I figured why not. After my first skate last night I have to say, that was the least painful first skate I've ever experienced! Very comfortable for a first skate... Better than after owning the 1S' for 2-3 months! Only thing that was weird for me were the edges on the skates. On my older Bauers, it felt like I was skating on rails as in I had no issue going straight or doing sharp turns as long as I dug my feet into the ice with the downside of less edge control. Last night was my first night and I had a game (probably not the best time to test them out). These Supertacks seem to be the opposite way. When I'm skating straight, I feel like my steel is digging into the ice like a stop which is slowing me down from accelerating. I also felt like I couldn't turn as sharply from when I took a turn with the puck and it ended up in a bad turnover. Also last night I seemed to be taking a large number of passes to my skates (the hockey in Idaho Falls isn't very good) and had no chance of controlling it to my stick. I also was skating backwards and as I was accepting a pass and transitioning to go forwards I stumbled pretty hard and lost control. I also went to the locker room after and noticed that the skates could have been tighter by pushing my fingers into where the eyelets are. My #1 priority is comfort (I'm not going to the show and just want to have fun) which these were great for, but the feeling of the edges scraping all the time is bugging me. I would retighten the skates every now and then and it would fix them now and then. I also have those damn CCM laces which were loosening my skates left and right because I forgot to buy wax laces for them (ordered a pair on amazon which will get here Wednesday). Could this come from the laces not being tight enough? Are there any factors to make your skates have more like my Bauers in how they ride? Do people even enjoy having their skates scrape like that and want that intentionally or is this something everyone avoids? Any tips would be appreciated and I'm sorry if I didn't explain this well because I found it tough to explain.

    CCM Tacks 7092

    Recent Stick History: STX Surgeon RX2.1, Warrior QR Pro, Easton Mako shaft with Warrior blades 6'2, 215 lbs Position/ style- Winger/ JVR- I like to stand in front of the goalie, create a problem for the opposing D men, and try to deflect shots and knock home rebounds. I can fire some wristers too, when opportunity presents. Definitely not a dangler, not a great skater, but I am strong enough and have an athletic background. Sometimes I put my whole body into my shots, which slows my release. Other times, I like to shoot without any load, which makes for a weaker shot but a quicker/ more masked release. CCM Tacks 7092 P30 75 Flex Grip After having been through about 10 blade patterns (Easton Igninla retail, P88 Kane, P28 Yakupov, P92 Backstrom, PM9 Stamkos, Base BC71 Malkin Pro, Sheiffele pro stock shaved down at the toe), in the last couple of years, I saw the IceWarehouse CCM P30 blade video. I had to question if I was dreaming, as I often thought that a P88/P28 hybrid would be perfect for me (which it turns out to be). I had heard great things about the Tacks sticks- specifically the Ultra tacks, and then saw that the 2.0 line was going back to some Ultra Tacks features (like the soft handle), so I gave the stick a try. Blade/Feel: Incredible. I have never enjoyed a stick with terrific puck feel (I heard that certain sticks had good feel, just never tried them), as I have never splurged on a top-of-the-line stick (either go one down from top, or 2 piece). This blade is crisp. I do not like a dampened feel, and I have never felt pingy. This blade is also very stiff, which I like, as I am 6'2, 215 lbs and work out alot. So, when I feel that I have flexed the blade, and then the puck does funny things, I am not happy. This blade is always reliable. When a pass hits the blade, it makes a "crack" sound as when a wooden bat hits a baseball, and the feedback in the hands is perfect as well. I know the puck has arrived, but there is no vibration, and it just gives a nice feel into my hands. I think that the blade is last year's top of the line Super Tacks or Ultra Tacks blade. I would love to try the 2.0 blade, as I can only imagine it must be better (or perhaps not, and I am just speculating), 10/10 Shaft: I had not used a mid kick, so this was a bit of an adjustment at first. (Now, I struggle with using my QRL pro stock low kick.) The mid kick, coupled with the soft handle and stiff hosel, does not seem to make me lose any speed of release on wrist shots. Everything is much more accurate though, since I feel I can control the blade a little better, when the stick is flexing in my hands, instead of way down at the blade. This is more a Cosmic/ relationship with low kick and mid kick issue, than a Cosmic relationship with this 7092 Tacks stick in particular. As I never used a mid kick before, I did not really know what to expect. Everything seems good now that I have adjusted. Just a note, that I added an internmediate STX Surgeon RX2 end plug, to give me a more natural finger wrap on my top hand. When I have an STX Surgeon RX2 or this extension as the end plug, then I pretty much catch every routine pass. With a traditional T shaft geometry in my top hand, catching easy passes can quickly become a trainwreck. 9/10 Flex: When this stick was fresh out of the box, the flex seemed perfect. However, once I "broke the stick in," (fired a ton of shots, and compromised the integrity of the fibers- standard for any stick that I get my hands on), and have since used it in a couple of competitive games, it is now too whippy. My fault. I heard that it was a stiff stick, so I went admittedly low on flex. I should go either 85 or 95, and will likely buy both in the near future, and figure out which one suits me best. No rating really necessary- the stick flexes where it is supposed to flex, it rips shots, and it does what it is supposed to to. For casual outings, I think the 75 ought to continue to work for me. For more intense games, I think I need 85/95 flex. Weight: I think the weight is around 450-460, pretty ok'ish for this price point. Very well balanced, so it is hard to tell the difference between this and my pro stock QRL, if I have my eyes closed. 9.25/10 Shooting: It is hard to separate the P30 blade pattern from anything having to do with shooting. In order to do so, I would need a bunch of sticks with the P30, so I can rate the different sticks. I think that Tthe blade pattern (P30) makes my shots spot on. I literally scored about 15-20 goals in pickup a couple of nights ago (it was 2 hours, and we had 2 subs, and for whatever reason, the other team's speed, that had subs, was mirroring our team speed). So, just having time to get to where I wanted to shoot, pick a spot, and then get the puck past goalies from spots in close enough (15-25 feet) that they had no chance to react, says something for the accuracy features, as well as the power and quick release that this stick offers. A couple of nights later, in a competitive game, I do not even think I got any shots on net, because I was leaning on the stick so hard (to prevent stick lifts) that I was noodling it and could not control passes or get my shots off. This was when I realized that I need a higher flex. Again, not the fault of the stick, just my own failure to know ahead of time, how this stick would react to the full force of my weight on it. 9.5/10 Durability: After 1 skate, I noticed some little dents in my first stick's blade. I contacted CCM Warranty, they sent me a 2nd stick, and said "keep the first stick." (Thank you again, CCM) No dents in either stick since then, and both are going strong. 9.25/10 Verdict: This is a great all around stick. I have really no feedback for how to improve. My main intention of writing this review, is to provide CCM people reading this form, feedback on how the P30 is working with this stick. Love the blade pattern, the stiffness of the blade itself, and the soft upper handle and mid kick, and how everything ties together. All of these are new features for me, and they seem to be working harmoniously. The only issue that I am having is dialing in my flex, but anyone who knows me (Farmer's walks with 100 pound dumbells in each hand, leg press with 7-45 pound plates on each side, lat pulldowns with the entire rack, pushups with a Swiss ball under my hands, and another under my feet, etc.), and sees the 75 flex always responds the same way, "Are you serious? You need 90-100 flexx!" What I have learned, is that in low intensity games (where I am shooting with lazy mechanics, and not leaning hard on my stick), this flex is indeed pretty much perfect. However, in higher intensity games, this stick is noodling under the force on my leaning into it on stickhandling and shooting. Regardless, this stick is pretty much perfect, with the slight modification that I make, to accommodate my my lack of hands: the Surgeon RX2 end plug). Most guys like the T shaft geometry though, so this is more of an issue of mine, than an issue with the stick.

    Hip protection issues

    I used to be a lot bigger, but over the years lost a bunch of weight. Last year I needed new pants just because of sizing, and went with Tacks 4052 pants as they seemed quite protective for mid-level pants. Unfortunately after an accidental slew foot in January where I landed on my boney right hip. It seems that and bump or fall re-aggravates the discomfort. I've tried adding padding and a new padded jock, but the issue always comes back. At this point are more protective pants my only solution or any other suggestions? (I know not fall, but it''s rare that I do though sometimes two guys collide into you and...). ANY advice is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hey everyone, I've done a good deal of research on some new skates but I'd love some personal opinions. I'm feeling pretty brand loyal to CCM right now. Coming from some CCM u+ crazylights, and I did like them. Unfortunately the holder on one skate just exploded when hit by a shot. The steel is really low on both skates as is, and all in all it just feels like it's time for new skates rather than paying the cost to fix these up. As it stands, I'm loving the idea of newer Tacks skates. I prefer a stiff boot and that's pretty much exactly why I'm interested in the Tacks. I'm turned off of the Tacks skates because of the prices. I could drop $900 or $700 or whatever on supertacks or ultratacks, but I don't realllllly want to. I can get the CCM Tacks (I guess that would be last years?) for around $370 shipped which feels like a decent option. The Ribcor 48k is reasonably priced and might work for me. I used some RBKs for roller hockey waaaay back in the day. They had the lace lock and pump and I honestly was a fan of both (though IIRC the boot was a bit painful, but I'm not gonna compare roller to ice). I haven't considered the Jetspeed much but I'm assuming it would be similar to my crazylights, which I liked, to a certain extent. For what it's worth I'm a size 7 skate, 8.5 US mens shoe. My feet have a pretty serious arch to them, and are not exactly wide. Pro stock and ebay have been...lacking. As has clearance. Either a super common or super uncommon size, I guess I know i have other skate options than CCM but I'm going to drive myself crazy considering them all. Greatly appreciate any input. I need to get back on the ice asap!
  7. Hello everyone, I've encountered a problem. I've had CCM Tacks Vector Pro (The 5092 with a different liner, laces that break instantly, and the SpeedBlade Black steel) skates since around late August. I was in an 8.5 shoe (Asics, if that matters), and the skates are a 7.5. I got them baked the day of purchase, and have since had them rebaked about two weeks ago. However, even with 30 or so uses since buying, two bakings, and pulling the laces tight, they feel too wide, and generally don't feel right. What's the problem? Did I get the wrong fit? (Tacks / Supremes as opposed to Jetspeed / Vapor.) Too stiff? Too soft? My feet have since grown, and I know that a skate is supposed to be one and a half sizes down, as opposed to what it is now. I've got school tryouts this weekend, so there may not be time to get a new skate and adjust to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks. About me: -5'4''. 120 lbs -10.5 shoe (Asics) Skate history: CCM Tacks Vector Pro (5092) 7.5D Bauer Supreme 160 LE 6.5EE Easton Stealth S15 5.5R Bauer Vapor X50 5.0D CCM U+01 (I don't know what size these were, I had them my first season of hockey and lost them within a month) Again, thanks.
  8. Hi. I've noticed that on some CCM Tacks skates the word "ATTACKFRAME" is printed in all white letters, whereas on others the "ATTACK" is printed in yellow. Can anybody tell me what the difference between these skates is? Thanks in advance.
  9. 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.

    Ccm Ribcor 40k or Tacks

    Need a new stick and was thinking about getting one of these sticks but am undecided. I play center which should I get? I take mainly snap and wristers.

    "Mid kick-point" sticks

    Considering purchasing a mid kick-point stick and wanted feedback on some of the high-end options: (i.e. Bauer Supreme, CCM Tacks, Warrior Dynasty, and Easton Synergy HTX). I have used the TotalOne and the NXG, being a huge fan on the NXG. I am really interested in the Warrior Dynasty Ax1 ST. Anyone have any experience with the Dynasty aX ST or the CCM tacks sticks??
  12. Hello All, I am currently looking into getting some new skates and won't be able to get to the LHS to see for myself. Does anyone know how the depth of the new Tacks line compares to the Bauer Supreme One.7's? Also, does anyone know if the new supreme line has the same depth as the old line (Supreme one.7 depth vs. Supreme 170)?? I have a pair of the One.7's size 6.5 EE and love them except that they aren't quite deep enough for my foot as I fail the pencil test so I can't really tie the laces as tight as I normally would like. I was thinking of getting some RBZ 80's but have heard bad things about the RBZ line build quality/durability and the heel pocket on them seems like it may be too wide. I used to have a pair of Bauer Nexus 800's and the depth on those was great but the heal pocket was too narrow for my foot as my inside ankle's would sometimes rub up against the eyelets making them extremely uncomfortable. In summary, if I could find a skate that has the depth of the Nexus line and the heel pocket width of the Supreme line it would be perfect for my foot. With the above in mind, it seems the Tacks skate line might be perfect for me except I'm not sure how deep they are. As a side note, I'm considering the 4052 or 5052 Tacks as I don't have the $$ for the top of the line models. Any input would be much appreciated, thanks!
