Are CCM RibCor sticks good?
The CCM RibCor 84K Stick is an excellent choice for the new-to-hockey or casual player looking for value, durability and performance. Just like the rest of the line, the 84K boasts a low kick flex profile which means shooting and passing the puck is effortless and lightning quick.
CCM Ribcor skates are geared towards players looking to make agile, quick and extremely tight turns. The FlexFrame™ technology provides excellent forward flexion to help players generate power and lateral stability which helps to maximize energy transfer with every stride.
The difference between the two is in the kick point. The Ribcore 4 Pro is designed for the forward that favors a low kick point with a very quick release, while the Jetspeed FT3 Pro is for the players that want more power with slightly slower release times. The Ribcore Trigger 4 Pro is very popular amongst forwards.
Overall, sticks from CCM's Ribcor line are being used by 12.7% of NHL players. Notable players using this stick: Brock Boeser, JT Miller, Joe Thornton, Mathew Barzal. Speaking of low-kick, quick release sticks, the Bauer Vapor Flylite is next on our list at #3.
Connor McDavid Stick Spec Check
McDavid's custom curve is a variation on the popular P92 pattern, with a smaller, slightly squared blade face. He has been using the curve since he was a young, and for the most part has stuck with it throughout his pro career (with some brief experimentation here and there).
The winner for high kick point goes to the Bauer Supreme Ultrasonic. Honestly, the CCM Super Tacks AS4 Pro is an incredible stick. The main reason Bauer gets the advantage here is simply because it offers a slightly higher kick point than the AS4 Pro.
The movement was started by none other than Wayne Gretzky who signed an endorsement deal to use an HXP 5100 aluminum shafted stick made by Easton. The late 80's saw initial use of aluminum shafted sticks, but it was Wayne Gretzky who made them popular in the early 90's.

Ovechkin has been using the same CCM Ribcor Trigger since making the switch back to CCM from Bauer in 2017. The 37-year-old tested out the TOVI stick at the start of practice, dishing a couple of goals and stickhandling.
The CCM RibCor Trigger 7 Pro Stick is lighter, stronger and even better balanced than any RibCor stick before it. It feels even lighter than the stellar 375 grams (85 flex) while the near-perfect weight distribution is immediately noticeable and appreciated.
