The 2018 CCM Super Tacks AS1 replaces the Super Tacks 2.0 as the mid-kick option in the Tacks family. The 5th generation Tacks is the lightest stick ever released within the lineup. That's a great start, but it might also be the most durable and the most powerful Tacks stick as well. The AS1 is a true mid kick stick built for aggressive and powerful shooters like San Jose Sharks defenseman, Brent Burns.

The AS1 focuses in on two things: maximizing energy transfer and controlling the shot trajectory. We want to put as much as we can into shots, but we also want to know where the puck is going. It's a tricky formula, but CCM has produced a stick that should help you pick corners and add a few MPH to your shot.

The AS1 features an optimized flex profile with a soft segment above the mid-point of the shaft for quick release wrist shots and increased stiffness from the mid-point to blade for maximum energy loading for snapshots.

Overall, the AS1 is a mid kick point stick at heart and is built for booming slapshots and heavyweight wrist shots. Those that prefer a low kick stick would still require an adjustment period to refine their technique if they switched over to the AS1. But this optimized flex profile will be a perfect fit for the true mid kick point player.

The AS1 shaft and blade are constructed using a new molding process from CCM called X-Flow technology. The idea behind the X-Flow process is to remove excess resin and voids when layering the carbon fiber sheets. This manufacturing method allowed CCM to shave 10g off the previous design while increasing fiber compaction.

As mentioned above, the AS1 blade is constructed using the X-Flow technology for an improved strength-to-weight ratio. What makes the ACU3 blade unique is a firm stiffness throughout. The blade is very stiff from heel to toe with minimal dampening. There is a tactile surface on the blade face, but that is specifically designed for shot control.

Hockey Player Stick Sizing & Information Guide

Selecting the right stick for you.
When it comes to sizing a Hockey Stick, the length tends to be a preference. Sticks come in Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Youth lengths with corresponding flex options. You will need to consider your weight and height or the person you are buying for in order to choose the correct size. Intermediate, Junior, and Youth hockey sticks will have smaller shaft dimensions, making them easier for young players to hold and control.

A stick can always be cut down in length, and will usually be cut down for kids. However, selecting a hockey stock too long in length or the wrong flex can hinder performance. For kids, junior, intermediate and senior all come in roughly standards length. In some cases, each Junior flex will be a different length of stick. Look at each and compare the height of the player you are buying for.

Flex can be tricky to pick as every hockey player is different and has their own preference. You can think of flex numbers as pounds of force. Having too stiff or too whippy a stick can hinder performance in their own ways.

Personalizing your stick length.
As mentioned before, length is very much personal preference. To determine a benchmark height, stand with your shoes off and the stick against your body with the toe on the ground. As a general rule of thumb we recommend sticks to come up to between your mouth and nose. For kids, or players who are still growing, the maximum height we recommend is eye level.

Mark the shaft of the stick where the height is desired and cut it down to length. Make sure to re-insert the plug from the top to prevent an open composite end at the top of your stick.

When cutting a stick down, keep in mind that the shorter you cut a stick, the stiffer it becomes. As a general rule, a stick increases 3% in stiffness for every inch cut off. If you are unsure how much you want to cut off, take the least amount first so that you can always cut more if necessary. Cutting the stick multiple times will not affect the sticks construction.

Information to Consider

Flex Options
Players want to be able to fully flex the stick. If a stick is too soft, the resulting shot will be inaccurate and weak. If a stick is too stiff, there will be no power behind the shot. Think of the flex number as pounds of force. This is the number of pounds that need to be put into the stick to fully flex it.

Curve Options
In most cases, sticks are offered in multiple blade curve pattern options. Please refer to our blade pattern charts for more information regarding the patterns available.

Kick Point Options
A Mid-kick stick will have a stiffer taper so that it flexes more in the middle of the shaft. These sticks have a longer loading time but offer a more powerful shot, perfect for players taking a lot of slap shots.

A Low-kick stick will have a stiffer middle of the shaft and softer taper so that it flexes at the bottom of the shaft closer to the blade. These sticks will have a much quicker release perfect for quick snap shots and writs shots.
