Reebok RibCor Senior Hockey Stick
The new Reebok Ribcor Hockey Stick is Reebok's top hockey stick model for 2013. Reebok has been among the industry leaders for several years now, developing some of the most innovative hockey stick technologies that we've seen. Their newest creation, the Ribcor is primed for quick, powerful shots. Their unique shaft design employs their ribbed design that creates a constant tension among the shaft fibers, which produces incredible potential energy that's ready to release as soon as you load up for a shot. By pre-loading the stick, Reebok has created a "power chamber" that's in a constant state of charge.
In addition to the RibCor shaft design, Reebok unveiled the new SSX Blade, which is constructed with a blade that is increasingly stiffer from heel to toe. This design helps to keep the blade face from opening up, helping you retain complete power and accuracy on your shots and passes. This is a key feature that truly enhances and complements the new Ribcor Shaft technology to help you get the most out of every shot, pass and dangle.
The new Reebok Ribcor Hockey Stick is also 10 grams lighter than the Reebok 20K Stick from the last generation of Reebok sticks. The kick point is low, which means you'll be able to get a smooth, quick release, especially on your snap shots. Everything about the new Reebok Ribcor Hockey Stick is designed with the accomplished goal of creating truly powerful precision.

September 23, 2013
I have been playing hockey for as long as I could walk. Over the fifteen years of hockey, I have had over 25 hockey sticks. I have used almost every brand possible,(Bauer, Reebok, CCM, Easton, Sherwood, Boa, Warrior, Graf, Mission, Inno, Eagle, and TPS) If there is one thing I learned over the years, it is to not judge a book by its cover. All sticks look and feel different. It just takes time to find the stick that you enjoy the most. Sometimes it will take years to find the one that gives you the perfect shot, and flex. It took me up until my freshman year of college to find the absolute perfect stick. Before then I have enjoyed a few sticks, but did not really over please me. Until about two weeks ago, I was using the Totalone NXG, the lightest stick on the market. Maybe a little too light in my opinion. I heard about the new Reebok stick, called the Ribcor. Only owning two or three Reebok sticks in the past, I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this stick. Every stick I buy, I do my best to get a good feel for the stick without taking it out on the ice. I will test the flex of the stick, curve and how well I can stick handle with the desired stick. The new Ribcor was something that peaked my interest after I looked at it this first time. The ribs at the bottom of the shaft, were something never seen on a stick before. “Optical loading zone,” is what is written on the lower end of the shaft. The loading zone is supposed to give the stick a pre-loaded shot. Making the person using the stick get a harder shot without having to put a hardcore flex on the stick. I knew all of this information prior to purchasing the stick. Compared to my old stick,Totalone NXG, the Ribcor was considerably heavy. Although one of the lighter sticks, I was able to notice the difference. The Ribcor compared to the NXG has minor differences in my opinion. For example the NXG is lighter, I feel the blade of the stick is not as stiff as the Ribcor. Puck control with the Ribcor I thought is a little easier to control, because the stick is a little heavier, it’s easier to notice the blade is on the ice. Shooting the puck, without a doubt, the Ribcor beats the NXG by far. The “optical loading zone” may sound a little cheesy, however, I found the ribs to work great. I noticed the flexibility within the ribs of the stick while taking quick release shots. These two sticks compared, I believe the Ribcor has the NXG beat without any issues. The Easton Mako stick was a stick I always wanted. The stick just really stuck out to me. After buying the stick, I was greatly disappointed. There was nothing that I enjoyed about the stick whatsoever. The stick was way too flexible, it was so whippy that I could not produce a hard enough shot that I liked. The Ribcor also provides a nice feature with the ribs. It does not twist the blade when taking hard slap shots. Although the twist is very minimal on other sticks, it is enough to weaken the blade quicker. The Ribcor makes the blade not twist at all, making the blade even more stiff. The RBZ Stage 2, is a stick that I fell in love with right away. It had almost everything going for it. It was a light stick, and had a very nice grip on it. The blade on this stick was honeycombed, meaning, after taking many shots, hitting the same spot the blade will not weaken. In Fact the constant shooting will absorb the pressure from the puck throughout the entire blade, not one spot. This will make the blades stiffness and effectiveness last longer. Another amazing feature of the RBZ is the flex point. The entire shaft is the kick-point. Wherever the users bottom hand is, that is where the stick will flex. Which is something new that I have never experienced before. The only problem with that is, it can break easier. Because the stick is not as stiff as a regular composite stick. The Ribcor compared to the RBZ was a tough competition. They are both fantastic sticks. However, My RBZ broke after 40 days of owning it. Snapped in half from blocking a shot. The reason I believe from the all around flexibility of the shaft. Although the Ribcor does not have the flex like the RBZ, the loading zone definitely makes up for it. My shot I believe is 25-30 percent harder and also more accurate. I have used over 25 sticks in my lifetime. Some that I absolutely loved, and others I did not enjoy one part of. It does not matter what company you are a huge fan of, you should give each brand a try. It may turn out that a company you did not think would be good, turns out to have one of the best sticks. Overall, the Ribcor has everything I can ask for in a stick. The perfect stiffness of the blade. The texture of the shaft is something different, and new. The patented ribs on the shaft, giving the user a harder and more accurate shot. The Ribs also produce more stiffness to the blade, by making the blade not flex. The only issue I have with this stick, is the fact that there is only one color at the moment. The stick is only produced in black. I hope Reebok will produce more Ribcor sticks with a variety of colors involved. I highly recommend any hockey player to try this stick. Although it is rather expensive, it will not disappoint. Give the Reebok Ribcor a try, and enjoy the new designs that Reebok has to offer. Keep playing hockey and experiment with the new equipment that is coming out.
