Tacks 9080 Stick

The new Tacks 9080 pushes the boundaries of performance and will become the new standard for Mid-Kick point sticks. The stiffness profile has been optimized for a longer loading period, while also providing great stability and control. Not only can players benefit from a great loading stick, it also feels better than ever. The new X-Flow technology allows for a 10g weight reduction while improving compaction for better durability.

Specs

  • Kick Point
    Optimized Mid Kick Point for a for a longer loading period which increases the energy stored, while the stiff taper maximizes stability.
  • Shaft Technology
    X-Flow Technology: An optimized molding technology which allows for better compaction of the fibers: increased durability and lighter weight.
  • Blade
    The ACU2 Blade is a unique layup which allows us to have a light blade while maintaining its stiffness for a more accurate shot.
  • Material
    C6 Weave on the blade and on shaft provides great all around stiffness and strength for added durability on the shaft and blade.
  • Intermediate Geometry
    Designed with the help of Elite women’s hockey players and a cross-section of youth players, rounded corners and concave sides for better control and comfort .

Flex Chart

With all the different sticks available on the market, it can be hard to choose the right one. Not only are there many models, but curves and flexes can also be a challenge. Picking the right flex is a crucial step. If a player picks a stick that is too soft or too stiff they will not be able to load the stick efficiently. This chart was developed to help guide players, by using two simple criteria, weight and height.
